How do rear-end accidents happen in Georgia?

Rear-end accidents happen every day in Georgia and can have a long-term impact on victims and their families.  The following are some of the top factors in rear-end collisions:

  • Distracted drivers - While cellphone use behind the wheel has become a major factor in all types of accidents, there are many other forms of driver distraction. Eating behind the wheel, operating the controls of a stereo, talking to a passenger, or gazing at something along the side of the road, to name a few, can all cause rear-end collisions.
  • Reckless or aggressive drivers - Drivers who speed or wait until the last second to come to a stop might cause a rear-end crash. Drivers also sometimes drive too fast for the weather conditions and fail to give themselves enough time to stop.
  • Drunk drivers - People who get behind the wheel after having too much to drink have delayed reaction time. They might slam into the back of a car stopped at a light or a vehicle that has slowed on a highway because of traffic congestion.

The cause of your accident may seem clear-cut. You were hit from behind while lawfully stopped at a red light, stop sign, or crosswalk. Maybe you were slowing down in a construction zone or on Interstate 20 during rush hour when your accident occurred. While you might think you can handle the insurance claim on your own, it's not unusual for adjusters or attorneys for the at-fault individual to try to get you to give up your rights or to agree to an unreasonably low settlement.
