Who Will Receive Compensation for a Rear-End Collision?

Who Will Receive Compensation for a Rear-End Collision?


According to the National Law Review, rear-end crashes are one of the most typical forms of collisions in the United States. Each rear-end accident has a different set of conditions. Additionally, rear-end collisions might have a variety of causes that aren’t always obvious, like all other crash types. Injury victims and their New York City car accident lawyers face a hurdle because there are no consistent and predictable causes for rear-end collisions.

It is not a given that this will happen merely because another car hit you from behind. You must provide supporting data for your claim.

Typical Reasons for Rear-End Auto Collisions

Nearly any driving situation can result in a rear-end collision, although the majority of these collisions are caused by:

  • The driver who was following too closely was driving carelessly due to distractions,
  • The driver in pursuit who follows too closely or tailgates the lead vehicle; and
  • driving erratically considering the weather.
  • Assuming Fault in a Rear-End Accident Automatic?

    A rear-end collision is typically the easiest to determine who was at fault when it comes to an automobile accident, regardless of the reason or the severity of the injuries. Occasionally, the leading vehicle may be partially at fault for a rear-end collision, for example:

    • Suddenly changing lanes,
    • reversing or driving with a mechanical issue or flat tyre,
    • not utilizing danger lights or pulling over, and
    • not repairing a broken brake light or other defective equipment are all examples of ‘brake-checking’ the tailing driver.
    • Your Prospects for Compensation from a Rear-End Collision

      As the leading driver (the one hit from behind) in a rear-end collision, it’s important to understand that your auto insurance policy will have a significant impact on how your claim is handled and, frequently, how much money you receive.

      Getting an auto insurance claim started

      Your car accident case will most likely begin with a claim under that coverage if the at-fault driver has enough liability insurance to compensate your losses associated with the collision. Remember that submitting a claim is only the beginning of the insurance procedure.

      Accidents With Rear-Ends in No-Fault States

      If you reside in one of the about a dozen states with some form of a no-fault auto insurance system, you won’t initially be filing an insurance claim. Regardless of who caused the accident, you will initially turn to your own “personal injury protection” auto insurance coverage.

      Seeking a lawsuit over a car accident

      You might need to take the situation to the next level by bringing a car accident case to court if you and the insurance company cannot agree on the fair worth of your claim and negotiations over a settlement are coming to a stalemate.

      Whiplash Complications Following a Rear-End Auto Collision

      The neck injury known as “whiplash” is frequently brought on by rear-end crashes. Whiplash injuries can have a substantial impact on a claimant’s life, and this impact is compensable as “pain and suffering” in a vehicle accident injury claim.
