Long Island Rear-End Accidents Attorney
Let Our Lawyers Help You Pursue Fair Compensation
Rear-end accidents are one of the most common in the entire country. According
to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), out of
the 6 million auto collisions that happen in the United States every year,
a little more than 40% of them (2.5 million) are rear-end accidents. That
statistic also doesn’t cover the number of these incidences that

While rear-end accidents aren’t usually considered dangerous (most
occur at less than 10 MPH), they can still cause people long-term injuries
which could last a lifetime. People have sustained damage to their spines,
neck, face, brain, and knees during these kinds of accidents. Many rear-end
collisions are also referred to as “whiplash accidents” because
most involve sustaining whiplash injury to the neck and back.
However, more severe injuries can occur if the vehicle was traveling at
a high rate of speed or was larger than the car ahead of it. Collisions
involving 18-wheelers and other large commercial trucks are often deadly
to the people in the passenger vehicles. These larger vehicles can weigh
anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds, which creates a tremendous amount
of force. In these cases, traumatic brain injury, broken bones, severe
spinal damage, and even
wrongful death are a possible outcome.
Most of the time, people just aren’t paying attention when they bump
into the car in front of them. Drivers are supposed to maintain at least
a car length of distance in front of them for every 10 MPH they travel.
For example, in bumper-to-bumper traffic, cars are going 1 MPH, which
means they should have a car length of space between each car. This allows
people enough time to slam on the brakes quickly.
However, there have also been cases of environmental factors weighing into
the accident. If the roads are slick or icy, it may be more difficult
for someone to stop the car in time to avoid hitting the vehicle ahead.
The insurance companies are more likely to rule in your favor in these
kinds of cases; the person who collides with the other car has the responsibility
of stopping in time to avoid damage.
