Sacramento Rear-End Collision Lawyers
Holding At-Fault Parties Accountable for Rear-End Accidents
Rear-end accidents are among the most common car accidents that happen on the road. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that rear-end collisions account for about 29% of all crashes, with many resulting in serious or fatal injury.
After a rear-end collision, you may feel as though you are falling behind. Monthly bills may stack up as you struggle to cover the costs associated with the accident. It does not have to be this way—state law grants accident victims the right to seek compensation through a lawsuit. If you were injured, reach out to an attorney to learn about whether a lawsuit is the best course of action for you.

Common Causes of Rear-End Accidents
In most rear-end accidents, a moving vehicle slams into a stationary vehicle. Those involved tend to describe the accident as happening in the blink of an eye; others recount the horror of seeing a vehicle barreling toward them in their rear-view mirror without having enough time to move out of the way.
Several common causes of rear-end accidents that constitute negligent driving include:
- Driving recklessly
- Driving over the speed limit
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving a car in poor maintenance, such as with faulty brakes
The driver who rear-ended the other is usually considered liable for the accident. If you were rear-ended by another driver, you likely have grounds for an auto accident case.
