Compensation in Rear-End Collisions
Injuries from serious car accidents can be physically, emotionally, and financially challenging for a victim and their family.
An accident victim who suffered debilitating injuries will most likely need costly and ongoing medical care as well as rehabilitation therapies. They may also lose a considerable amount of income due to their injuries and recovery time. However, legal recourse is generally available for those who suffered damages due to another driver’s careless or reckless driving.
Victims could recover compensation such as:
- Lost wages
- All accident-related medical expenses
- Medical equipment and accessories
- Medication costs
- Vehicle repair or replacement
- Emotional distress
- Physical pain
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of a limb or a sense
This list is not exhaustive, and victims could potentially receive other damages unique to their case. Knowing your damages and what your claim or lawsuit might be worth can be important for recovering a fair settlement.
Your rear-end collision lawyer from our firm could give you an indication of the types of compensation that may be available to you in a lawsuit.

Negligence in Rear-End Accidents
Data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that several driver-related errors and behaviors can potentially cause rear-end accidents, including:
- Distracted driving
- Following too closely
- Fatigued or drowsy driving
- Intoxicated driving
Driving a defective car with faulty brakes or another defect can also cause rear-end accidents.
While the car driver in the back is normally to blame for a rear-end accident, this is not automatically the case. Drivers in the front car could potentially be responsible for a rear-end accident in the following instances:
- Brake lights were not working
- Cutting in front of a driver and slamming on the brakes for no reason
- Reversing into a car in the back
There can also be other reasons for the driver in front’s negligence. If you would like to establish whether you have a claim or lawsuit against a negligent driver, a Cape Coral rear-end collisions lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can give you assistance and legal advice.
Typical Rear-End Accident Injuries
According to the NHTSA, rear-end collisions are the most frequent type of accident and account for almost 30 percent of all car accidents in this country. Rear-end accidents also cause a considerable number of fatalities and injuries each year.
While rear-end crashes that happen in inner-city areas at low speed may not cause any injuries, accidents with cars traveling at high speed on highways can end tragically for all involved.
According to Mayo Clinic, frequently occurring injuries in rear-end accidents can include whiplash and other neck injuries.
However, serious rear-end accidents can cause a range of injuries, including:
- Herniated or fractured discs
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other head injuries
- Crushed and severed limbs
- Broken ribs
- Seat belt and airbag injuries
- Internal organ injuries
- Disfigurement from facial injuries
- Wrist and arm injuries
Victims may also suffer from the emotional consequences of a serious car accident and could develop depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The added stress, such as facing painful medical therapies, having to pay steep medical bills, and worrying about losing time at work, can also take an emotional toll on accident victims.
