Tampa Car Crash Lawyers

Some studies show that rear-end car accidents happen more often than any other kind of automotive crash. You may very well have experienced one for yourself. Like any other accident, a rear-end collision can be frightening, frustrating, and disruptive to your everyday life.

Because these accidents are so common and dangerous, Florida personal injury law imposes care on every driver. Each of us has a responsibility to drive carefully, to share the roads responsibly, and make an effort to avoid causing one another harm with our vehicles.

Unfortunately, many drivers aren’t as careful as they should be, and rear-end car accidents happen every day, all across the Tampa Bay and throughout the state of Florida.

Most of these accidents happen because of the rear-ending driver’s negligence. We will look at some of the common causes of rear-end car accidents below, as well as the injuries that we often see as a result. But if you’ve already been injured in one of these accidents, you need to know where you can turn now.

The Most Common Rear-End Collision Injuries in Florida

Rear-end collisions present a wide range of medical concerns — a wider range, in fact, than any other kind of injury.

By far the most commonly reported injury, whiplash is sometimes dismissed by cynics as some sort of manufactured complaint. But medical science — not to mention our own experience — suggests just the opposite. Whiplash is real, it can be very severe, and it almost always creates significant hardship for those who experience it.

The good news is that Florida personal injury law, much like the medical community, recognizes whiplash as legitimate, serious injury.  So do we.

Of course, whiplash isn’t the only medical concern related to rear-end car accidents. Other common injuries include:

  •  Herniation
  •  Broken bones
  •  Other soft tissue damage
  •  Fractured or broken bones
  • Bruises and lacerations
  •  Internal bleeding
  • Internal organ damage
  •  Trauma to the head, brain, or spine
  •  Concussions
  • Vision loss
  •  Much more, including the possibility of wrongful death

If you have recently been involved in a rear-end collision, please seek immediate medical attention. That is absolutely the most important thing you can do — far more important than calling us or worrying about how you’ll pay your bills. Go see your doctor and then reach out to our office.

Remember: whiplash and other injuries are not always obvious, especially to the victims themselves. They can cause major problems later down the road, though. It is always in your best interest to see a doctor right away (and if you suspect any emergency, please call 911).

Common Causes of Rear-End Car Accidents

Rear-end collisions happen when one vehicle crashes into the rear of another. Legally speaking, the rear-most car is usually (but not always) at fault.

Common causes of rear-end collisions include: 

  •  Driver distraction or inattention
  • Driver panic
  •  Tailgating
  • Reduced traction (due to weather, worn pavement, faulty tires, etc.)
  •  Sudden braking or deceleration
  •  Speeding and then having to quickly stop to avoid an accident

These are just a few of the more common scenarios. Regardless of how your accident happened or the injuries it’s caused, the Tampa car crash lawyers in our firm can help.
