Rear-End Accident

Oklahoma City Rear-End Accident Attorneys

If a Driver in Front Stops Suddenly and a Collision Occurs Who Is at Fault in Oklahoma?

Most often, fault is considered to lie with the driver of the second vehicle in a rear-end accident. However, there are circumstances where this does not apply. It is important to investigate your particular accident to determine the best approach.

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident in the U.S. While the injuries caused in rear-end accidents are typically not fatal, they may have a lasting impact on a victim. Whiplash is the most common injury sustained in a rear-end accident. This may cause lasting pain and stiffness and may lead to an inability to work or perform day-to-day activities. A victim may also sustain spinal cord injury or head trauma, depending on the force of impact from the collision.


Compensation for Victims of Rear-End Collisions  IN OKLAHOMA CITY


A rear-end collision occurs when the front end of a vehicle collides with the back end of the vehicle in front of it. There are different circumstances that may lead to a rear-end accident. Both vehicles may be moving and the second driver may be following too closely, speeding or distracted and may therefore be unable to stop if the first driver decelerates suddenly or stops. Another scenario may involve a vehicle that is already stopped, when the driver of the second vehicle is not paying attention and strikes the already stationary vehicle.
