Rear Impact Crashes can cause severe neck, head, and brain injuries

Rear Impact, or Rear-End Collisions can happen when a driver is following too close not giving themselves enough time to react if the car in front of them stops suddenly. Read-end collisions can also be a result of distracted driving, such as using a cell phone or changing the radio.

Even though most cars have advanced technology to protect drivers and passengers, serious injuries during an accident, especially a rear-end collision, do regularly occur. Injuries to the back, neck, and head, including traumatic brain injury, can cause a person to miss work and lead to a long recovery period.

When an accident to cause by the negligence of another driver, a personal injury case can be brought to recover damages to compensate an injured person for their losses.

Marc Albert Holds Negligent Drivers Accountable

When a driver strikes a vehicle in the read, it is presumed that driver is at fault. However, victims pursuing personal injury cases must still show that the driver’s negligence caused the accident and subsequent injuries.  Negligence exists when one driver breaches his or her duty to act as a reasonable and prudent person would act under the circumstances, causing another person’s injuries.

Comparative Negligence is when the fault of an accident is often shared among most or all of the people involved in the accident, however, just because a person was assigned a portion of the blame, they does not mean they cannot recover damages.

Damages are awarded proportionally based on each party’s degree of liability. Victims of auto accidents may be compensated for loss of property, lost wages, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
