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. Maybe you were rear-ended at an intersection, or 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 and you were rear-ended by a truck. Perhaps you were rear-ended by a drunk driver. 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.
