Have you been rear ended by another vehicle recently? These are some of the most common types of car accidents. They can also cause terrible injuries, even if the crash seems to be slight. Of course, if your car has been rear ended by a truck or a bus, the collision can be far more serious. If you have been injured, however minor the injuries, you should consider the possibility of contacting an experienced car accident attorney to discuss the accident fully and investigate the chances of pursuing a claim against the driver who rear ended you.

Whiplash – a Typical Rear Ended Car Accident Injury

Even if your injuries seem to be insignificant, you should get yourself checked out thoroughly by a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Some injuries that occur in rear end collisions, like whiplash, are hard to spot at first and may only develop days or even a week or two after the incident. Whiplash and related injuries can be chronic with severe pain in the neck region and can mean considerable time off work.

Rear end collisions are at least relatively easy to investigate by those examining the causes of a crash. They are almost always caused by the driver at the rear. Typical reasons for a rear ended car accident are that the driver following is driving too fast and is pursuing your tail end too closely for safety. New York licenses are given out after would be drivers learn how they should behave on the roads and courtesy for other road users. A commonly used rule of thumb for following another vehicle is the two second rule. Basically, this means that you should allow a minimum lf two seconds driving time between you and the vehicle in front and more if the weather or visibility is bad.

Using a Cell Phone Can Lead to a Rear Ended Car Accident

Tiredness and distractions are also common causes of rear end collisions. All it takes is a cell phone to ring and a driver answers the phone illegally, and simply doesn’t notice that he or she is too close to the car in front, which may have to slow down or sop in a hurry because of traffic or a pedestrian or dog in the road.

Injuries form car accidents can be costly for the car accident victim. Not everyone is so well insured that they can afford the sort of ongoing medical care which may be needed if they are unfortunate enough to receive serious injuries. Just when they may need the money the most, they may even lose out on earnings because they have stayed away too long from work as a result of their injuries.

These expenses need not be paid by the car accident victim. If you have been injured in any way you must make an appointment with a car accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident. An experienced attorney can help you claim back any expenses you have as a result of the accident.

Outside of Pittsburgh you may need to contact a Philadelphia injury attorney instead.
