When your vehicle is struck from behind, your head can swing violently back and forth, damaging your nerves and causing whiplash. However, because these injuries are difficult to prove, insurance companies do not always offer fair compensation for soft-tissue injuries. This is why you should enlist the services of a Phoenix car accident lawyer if you have been injured in a rear-end accident. Contact the team at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. to arrange a free, no-obligation consultation.

Common Causes of Rear-End Accidents

Rear-impact collisions are the most common type of auto accident in the United States, with more than 2.5 million rear-end accidents occurring annually. Statistics show that inattention is the most common cause of these collisions.

Some of the most common causes of rear-end collisions include:

  • Texting or talking on the phone while driving
  • Driving too fast for conditions (speeding)
  • Failing to leave enough space between vehicles
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Dangerous weather conditions, such as rain

What You Should Do After a Rear-End Collision

If you are ever in the unfortunate situation of being rear-ended, it is important to know what to do next so you can preserve important evidence and protect your right to compensation. First, you should see a doctor immediately—even if you don’t feel injured. Injuries from a rear-end collision can go unnoticed for days, weeks, or months, which is why you should get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible. This documentation could also be crucial to your personal injury claim.

While you are still at the scene, you should also take the following steps:

  • If the accident is minor, move your car to the side of the road
  • If you or the other driver is injured, call for an ambulance
  • Contact the police so you can file an official accident report
  • Get contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident
  • Be polite, but do not admit fault for the accident to anyone
