Helping Victims of Rear-End Car Accidents

No matter how skilled a driver you are, everyone on the road is vulnerable to the actions of the cars behind them.  Rear-end car accidents account for nearly 30 percent of all auto accidents.   Heavy traffic, tailgating, and distracted driving are just some the reasons for a rear end car accident to occur. When accidents happen and life changes in the blink of an eye, you need a lawyer with experience, knowledge and a reputation for winning car accident cases.  You need a partner who will help you make the journey through the litigation process as smooth as possible.  You need Sobo & Sobo.

The once rural roads of the Hudson Valley now serve as key routes for a large number of commuters and travelers making their way to New York City and destinations beyond.  With the added traffic on our roads today, rear-end car accidents are becoming more and more common not only on highways across New York State but on more local roads as well.  Rear-end car accidents can range from a simple bumper-to-bumper tap to a car that has been totaled.

Rear End Car Accidents Are Often Caused by A Driver Negligence

Just because you are a diligent driver who follows the rules of the road, does not mean the drivers following you are doing the same.  One moment you are focused on the car ahead of you, the next moment, you are hit from behind and everything changes.  The following are common causes of rear-end car accidents:

  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Distracted driving (changing the radio, talking on the phone or eating while driving)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Not adjusting to driving conditions
  • Not paying attention to pedestrians
