According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), rear end collisions are responsible for nearly 1,000,000 injuries per year. These injuries range from minor bumps and bruises, and in some instances, death.
Virtually all rear end collisions are preventable. Distracted drivers cause many collisions wherein personal injury occurs. Driving a vehicle requires attentiveness to the road and your surroundings.
Weather is also a common contributing factor to many rear end collisions, especially in the South Sound region where rain, ice and snow occur during the winter months. My oldest daughter is currently learning to drive, and has reminded me of some defensive driving techniques such as increasing following distances and decreasing speed, which are helpful in all conditions, but especially in bad weather.
Injuries Arising from rear end collisions are often significant.
Rear end collisions between automobiles happen every day, causing a wide range of personal injuries. Some injuries such as broken bones and contusions are evident immediately, while other injuries such as neck or back strains, herniated disks and whiplash may not be evident until some post collision.
Even low impact collision often result in significant personal injury, which can also lead to costly medical bills, lost income, physical trauma and emotional pain. Regrettably, many rear end collision victims fail to sufficiently treat for their injuries.
