Rear-End Collision Attorneys in Savannah
Handling Complex Car Accident Claims with Skill
A rear-end collision is when a vehicle in motion strikes the back end of a vehicle in front of it. In almost every rear-end incident, the driver who hits the other car is found at fault, as it’s usually their responsibility to survey the surroundings and actions of nearby vehicles. Therefore, if the driver or any passengers of the stationary vehicle sustain injuries from the collision, they should be entitled to compensation.
At Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys, we fight for the victims of rear-end collisions in Savannah. Our personal injury attorneys take the time to gather evidence, prove liability, and present a strong case on your behalf.

What Causes a Rear-End Accident?
Rear-end collisions can be caused by several situations. If the front vehicle decelerates quickly and the back car does not notice in time or is not given enough time to brake or react, a rear-end collision could occur. A collision could also occur if the driver of the back car looks away or becomes distracted and does not notice the traffic stopped in front of them. Following a vehicle too close – tailgating – is one of the most common causes of rear-end accidents.
Possible Injuries in a Rear-End Collision
When a stationary vehicle is struck from behind by a moving vehicle, the passengers in the stationary vehicle usually don’t see it coming. As a result, they are not prepared and do not brace themselves for the impact.
Resulting injuries could include:
- A back injury
- A spinal or head injury
The passengers in the moving car typically do not sustain injuries as serious as these unless their vehicle is much smaller than the one they hit.
Seeking Medical Treatment
Anyone who has been involved in a rear-end collision should consider seeking medical treatment. The injuries suffered in these types of accidents are not always immediately identifiable and they may be more serious than they seem.
For instance, if a passenger who has been struck from behind in a rear-end collision complains of a sore neck, they could have whiplash, a bruised vertebra, or something worse. It always pays to be safe and to get any injuries treated right away.
Seeking medical attention is also important is you wish to file a claim against the other driver. Receiving treatment proves that you sustained injuries for which the at-fault driver is liable.
