When another driver’s negligence has caused you to be rear-ended, you may be suffering from physical injuries, emotional turmoil from being in a crash, and lost income during your recovery time. The following are some of the leading causes of rear-end collisions:
Rear-end collisions are the primary culprit in whiplash injuries. Whiplash is when your head has been violently thrown forward on your neck because of an extremely forceful impact from behind, causing neck and other soft tissue damage.

In addition to whiplash, a rear-end collision can cause many more injury types—some of them very serious injuries. The higher the speed the rear-ending car was traveling, the more likely you are to suffer a serious injury.
