Sometimes a “tapped bumper” can cause more than just vehicle damage.
Rear-end collisions are more than just fender benders. Usually, individuals involved in these collisions get away with just vehicle damage, but that is not always the case.
Although there are laws in Florida banning texting and driving, drivers disregard this and continue to use their phones while driving. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), 87% of rear-end collisions involve some element of distracted driving, and make no mistake using electronic devices while driving is a major factor in a majority of these accidents.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an interstate accident, after receiving medical attention, your next move should be to contact an experienced accident attorney who has compassion and will seek to get the justice you deserve. That’s the Loutos Law Firm promise.
Causes Of Rear-End Car Accidents
Rear-end collisions are car accidents that occur when the front end of a vehicle hits the car in front of it. While you may think that all rear-end collisions are easily preventable by simply keeping an eye on speed limits or giving enough space between your car and the car in front of you, there are actually an array of factors that can contribute to a rear-end accident. Some common causes of this kind of collision include:
Distracted driving, like texting while driving
Faulty brake lights
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
