Wintry conditions can make driving difficult at times. More than 20,000 auto accidents happen every year in the United States alone. Rear end collisions make up a large percentage of this number. Ice, snow, and freezing rain are some of the reasons for bad road conditions. When traveling too fast for snowy road conditions you don't have time to stop or the proper safety distance. Distractions, too, cause such accidents. Such conditions are usually when a rear end collision occurs.
Proper Precautions are over looked more than half the time.
Rear end car accidents occur as a result of motorists not taking proper precautions when driving in a snowstorm. A couple of precautions are driving at a safe speed (slowing down just a little more than normal speed) and keeping a safe distance between you and the car ahead of you. Ensuring the car is running safely, breaks and tires, may be neglected and cause a rear end car accident. You should not suffer because someone else failed to maintain safe conditions on the road.
Rear end Collisions Injuries Include (examples):
Head injuries including TBI (traumatic brain injury)
Spine, back and neck injuries
Fractures and broken bones
Permanent or temporary disability
Unfortunately, the doctors and hospitals are expensive when you are recuperating from an auto accident. With long lasting treatment and medical therapy things will get costly quickly. Most victims are out of work until released by doctors to return to work. That means you can miss days, weeks,month or even years of, among other things, lost wages after a rear end collision.
