Causes of Rear-End Accidents in Brooklyn

Rear-end accidents far outnumber other types of accidents, and many times can result in very little or no damage, but there are also times when not only is there property damage but serious personal injury.

In general, unsafe and negligent driving are the main causes of rear-end accidents, but more specifically there are three main causes:

  • The first car decelerates quickly and suddenly
  • The second car brakes too late to stop safely
  • Upon reaccelerating, the second car accelerates faster than the first car

Of these three main causes of rear-end collisions, the first two are the most likely to cause serious injury and damages, as the second car is slowing down from some unknown speed, whereas in the last example, both cars are starting from zero.

Other Causes of Injury

In the case of a rear-end collision, it is likely that the driver responsible for the impact will have some warning of the impending collision.  On the other hand, the driver of the car that is hit may not have any idea of the oncoming car or too little of a warning to prepare for it.

Because of this, serious soft tissue injuries may occur to the driver and any passengers in the impacted car.

Some of the factors that can determine the seriousness of injury are:

  • Position of passengers
  • Positioning of headrests
  • Seat belts and airbags
  • Awareness of the crash

In order to minimize injury to yourself and any passengers in your vehicle, it is important to not only be a good driver but also to be aware of other vehicles around you.

Keep your car’s safety features in working order, and be sure to utilize proper safety gear such as seat belts and headrests to minimize injuries should an accident occur.
