Rear End Collision Compensation Claims
Involved in a rear-end collision? We can help you with your car accident claim. We are experts in claiming money back for our clients.
Rear-end collisions or shunts often happen as you approach a junction and, in such an incident, the force of another car hitting your vehicle may throw you forwards. Rear-end collisions can also occur if both cars start from a stationary position – such as at a junction or a set of traffic lights. Drivers who do not leave enough space between them and the car in front can often cause a crash if they accelerate suddenly.
In both of these, and in most similar situations, the driver in the rear is held responsible for the crash.
Rear-end accidents can be very serious as sudden impact to the rear of a car can cause the driver to lose control of his or her vehicle, resulting in a more serious crash. In situations of heavy, slow-moving traffic, it is quite common to see a domino-effect accident, in which one driver rear-ends another vehicle, which is then pushed into the rear of a third vehicle, and so on.
Even when both cars are moving, the force of a rear-end impact can cause a large amount of damage to both cars, and injuries to their drivers or passengers.
