Drivers of motor vehicles have a responsibility to keep a safe distance between themselves and other vehicles. The reality in the Dallas area is that many drivers disregard this rule, resulting in serious accidents on our roads. A driver who collides with the vehicle in front of them is generally considered to be at fault for the accident because they failed to maintain a safe driving distance between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them.

When you are hit from behind in an auto accident, you can sustain a variety of injuries. The impacts can be severe. According to the Insurance Information Institute, there were 2439 fatal rear-end accidents in 2018.

Injuries caused by rear-end accidents include:

Spinal cord injuries including paralysis
Herniated discs to the back or to the neck
Back injuries
Facial injuries
Head injuries including Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Burn injuries
Fractures to the arms, legs, chest, and other areas of the body
Wrongful Death
Neck Injuries including Whiplash: Whiplash is one of the most common injuries from getting hit from behind. It is estimated that over 3 million people in the United States suffer a whiplash injury to their neck or back in car accidents each year, with many of these injuries caused by rear-end collisions. These soft tissue injuries can cause pain in car accident victims that may resolve in a few months or last a lifetime of agony, discomfort, and disability.

In some cases, the victim is unable to return to work or requires ongoing medical treatment and care. Our car accident lawyers build strong cases for our clients, seeking compensation from all parties responsible for physical, emotional, and property damages.

We hire vocational counseling and economics experts to accurately present these elements of personal injury damages to an insurance adjuster or jury. The Law Office of Doug Goyen can be reached at (972) 599 4100.
