Common Causes

Rear-end accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Texting drivers – Instead of paying attention, texting drivers may crash into the rear end of other vehicles.
  • Distracted drivers – It’s not just texting drivers who cause rear-end crashes. Drivers using GPS devices, talking on phones, changing radio stations or eating cause crashes.
  • Speeding – The faster people drive, the less time they have to stop – and avoid crashing into the car in front of them.
  • Drunk driving – Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs often fail to stop in time, causing a rear-end accident with serious or even fatal injuries.
  • Tired drivers – Many people work longer hours nowadays – and sleep much less. The result? Many tired drivers fall asleep or lose focus, resulting in a serious rear-end crash.
