Houston Rear-End Car Accident Lawyer

Rear-end caccidents are common and dangerous because it usually means that one car was not able to stop in time to avoid an accident.

What is a Rear-End Accident?

In the most basic sense, a rear-end car accident is when the front-end of a car or truck strikes the rear-end of another vehicle.  The vehicle that is struck is often not moving at the time of the impact, but that is not always the case.  Rear-end accidents also happen between two moving vehicles, such as in tailgating or rubber-necking.  Rear-end accidents are common in bumper-to-bumper traffic.  For example, on highways, bumper-to-bumper traffic and quick stops usually lead to rear-end accidents.

Can the Front Driver be Responsible in a Rear-End Accident?

Responsibility for any accident is evaluated by a reasonable person standard.   Lawyers, judges, and juries ask, “What is reasonable?”  There are situations when a front vehicle driver may be responsible for an accident.  For example, a front car may have unreasonably turned or swerved in front of an oncoming car.   


What are Types of Injuries in a Rear-End Accident?

People in rear-end accidents may suffer from a variety of injuries such as: broken bones, brain injuries, ruptured spleens, back injuries, neck injuries, scars, bruises, cuts, loss of a limb, airbags injuries, and even death. 

What are the Damages in a Rear-End Accident?

In Texas, personal injury damages generally fall under two categories:  economic and noneconomic.  

Economic damages are generally out-of-pocket damages such as medical expenses and lost earnings or loss of earning capacity.  In wrongful death cases, these damages can also include funeral expenses.  

Non-economic damages are intangible damages such as pain, suffering, disfigurement, and physical impairment.  In wrongful death cases, these damages can also include loss of companionship.
