Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of rear-end collisions. If a driver is not paying full attention to the road and the car in front of him, he is less likely to be prepared to stop if the car in front of him suddenly slams on the brakes. Other common causes of rear-end collisions are:

  • Tailgating: If a driver is tailgating you, he is more likely to rear-end you if you have to come to a complete stop.
  • Reckless driving: If a driver is not following the rules of the road, he could rear-end you in a variety of situations, including speeding, changing lanes without properly checking first, or illegal passing.
  • Drunk or intoxicated driving: If a driver is under the influence of any substance, it is more likely that their depth perception or general judgment will be impaired, increasing the likelihood of them rear-ending your vehicle.

You can't always avoid being rear-ended by another car, but you can avoid being the one who causes one. To avoid a rear-end collision, pay attention to the traffic ahead of you and make sure you are following the rules of the road.

Simply because an accident occurred does not imply that there were personal injuries or damages. Damage to the vehicles involved in a rear-end collision is frequently minor, or what is referred to as a fender bender. In other cases, if the offending vehicle is a truck, bus, or SUV, the vehicle damage can be severe.

Serious personal injuries can occur regardless of the force of the impact. Head and neck injuries are among the most common types of injuries sustained in rear-end collisions. These injuries may not be obvious at first, but their symptoms frequently worsen in the days following the accident, necessitating extensive medical treatment and even surgical intervention.

  • Back and neck injuries including spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Herniated discs to the back or to the neck
  • Facial injuries and eye injuries
  • Head injuries including concussions and traumatic brain injury
  • Burn injuries
  • Fractures to the arms, legs, chest, and other areas of the body
  • Wrongful Death

Very professional job handling my accident claim. I had some ER bills, and some visits to my ortho after (and various other bills that kept coming in). I was afraid I was going to get stuck owing money, but Doug Goyen took care of the case and had everything paid, including compensating me for the injury. Great lawyer IMO. I felt like my case was taken care of very well. Thx!! Bernard M.
Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.
The Law Office of Doug Goyen helped me recovery every bit I was owed on my claim. Very happy I used them. They knew what they were doing, and kept me informed. I felt taken care of the whole way. You wont go wrong using them. Arthur H.
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
