Rear-End Collision Accidents Lynchburg VA

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear end accidents account for the most common type of accident, accounting nationwide for 29% of all accidents. About 81% of all rear end accidents occur when the lead vehicle is stopped, with the leading cause for the at fault driver being driver inattention. This occurs in 87% of these accidents. Surprisingly, most of these accidents occur during daytime hours, on dry, straight level roads. Male drivers between the age of 25 and 34 were most likely to be at fault in rear-end collision accidents.

Main Reasons Drivers Cause Rear-End Accidents

These are some of the reasons that rear-end accidents occur. When you are the front car and are hit from behind, you are almost never at fault. Getting hit from behind also results in the most common type of accident injury in rear-end collisions, whiplash. Rear end collisions are the leading cause of whiplash.

Whiplash injuries can vary in severity, from mild soft tissue damage to serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries. In addition to whiplash injuries closed head injuries frequently occur in these types of crashes, that can leave long term and even permanent injury to the victim.

Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions Include:




Following too closely


Distractions (using a cell phone or inputting navigation or other commands)


Poor Road conditions due to weather


Driver error (accelerating too quickly or braking issues)


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs


Mechanical failure
