Experienced Car Accident Lawyers Fighting for You
When you are driving on the road, you hope that others will take the same precautions for your safety that you are taking. However, many drivers behave carelessly or recklessly. Rear-end accidents are one of the most common types of car accidents. In most cases, the law assumes that rear-end accidents are the fault of the driver who hit from behind, but this is not always the case.
There are many different causes of rear-end collisions, including speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving, and more. If you were involved in a rear-end accident that was caused by another driver, our Savannah personal injury lawyers at Karsman, McKenzie & Hart can help.
Causes of Rear-End Accidents
While driving, you are expected to follow the laws of the road, including driving at a reasonable speed and leaving an acceptable length between your car and the car in front of you. When drivers fail to pay proper attention to the road and to other cars around them, it can lead to accidents.
It can seem extremely unfair to be hurt as a result of another driver’s negligence. That is why speaking with a Savannah personal injury attorney may be in your best interest. We can work with you to determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim.
The most common causes of rear-end accidents include:
- Speeding over the limit
- Driving recklessly
- Cutting off drivers
- Pulling out suddenly into traffic
- Merging illegally
- Going too slow under the limit
