Rear-End Collision Accidents

Commonly experienced on Georgia’s roads, rear-end collisions are a frequent type of car accident. These accidents happen when one vehicle strikes the back of another. Such collisions can take place in various locations, including highways, city streets, public roads, and even private areas like parking lots.

 

Rear-end collisions typically occur due to two primary reasons: acceleration and deceleration. An acceleration-related rear-end collision happens when the trailing vehicle speeds up and hits the vehicle ahead. This often occurs when a driver suddenly accelerates from a stop, such as at an intersection, or is distracted – perhaps by using a cell phone for talking or texting – and fails to notice the slowing or stopped traffic ahead.

 

Alternatively, a deceleration rear-end crash happens when the lead vehicle slows down or stops abruptly, and the following vehicle doesn’t have enough time or space to brake effectively. Among these two types, deceleration collisions are more common. They often occur when the front vehicle brakes suddenly for traffic, stops to make a legal turn, or encounters an unexpected obstacle.

 

Under Georgia law, specifically O.C.G.A. § 40-6-49(a), drivers are required to maintain a safe following distance. It states that drivers must not follow another vehicle more closely than is “reasonable and prudent,” considering the speed, traffic, and condition of the road. This means that drivers are expected to stay vigilant and should not presume that the road ahead is always free of traffic.

 

Injuries from rear-end collisions, such as whiplash, are common. Whiplash refers to injuries to the neck and back resulting from the sudden forward and backward motion of the spine caused by the impact. Symptoms of whiplash can include neck and back pain, swelling, and aching. After such accidents, it’ important to seek medical attention and possibly undergo diagnostic tests like an MRI to check for any serious spine injuries like herniation, disc bulge, or fractures.
