According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end accidents are the most common type of motor vehicle accident, representing about 29 percent of all accidents.

Many of these accidents result in serious and even life-threatening injuries. In the most heartbreaking cases, a rear-end accident can result in death.
Greensboro is home to many busy roadways and highways like I-40, I-85, I-840, US-421 and US-220, and there is always a danger that a rear-end accident will occur due to distracted driving.

Common Injuries in Rear-End Car Crashes
In more than 35 years serving the people of Greensboro and greater North Carolina, our injury attorneys have handled hundreds of cases involving rear-end motor vehicle accidents. Injuries sustained in these cases range from minor to serious, including:
- Broken bones
- Cuts, scrapes, and contusions
- Neck injuries, including whiplash
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Shoulder injuries
- Spinal cord injury
- Back injuries
- Paralysis and semi-paralysis
- Hand injuries
- Loss of limbs / amputations
- “Road” rash in motorcycle rear-end accidents
- Airbag-related injuries
- Seatbelt-related injuries
Whiplash is an especially common injury sustained in rear-end collisions. Whiplash occurs when the neck is subjected to jarring, sudden movement, and the consequences can be severe and long-lasting. In many cases, pain and discomfort associated with whiplash can last for weeks or even months and require chiropractic and other medical care.
Proving Fault in Rear-End Accidents
In most cases, the driver of the vehicle behind the one hit in a rear-end accident is typically at fault, but this is not always true. An experienced rear-end accident lawyer can evaluate many different types of evidence in order to prove liability and strengthen your personal injury claim.
Evidence used to prove fault in a rear-end accident may include:
- Witness testimony
- Expert witness testimony, such as by accident reconstructionists
- Surveillance video and dash cam footage
- The official accident report
- Medical records
- Photos and video of the crash scene
- Vehicle damage
- Debris and other evidence at the crash scene, including skid marks
- Truck “black box” data
- Cell phone records
- Traffic data from navigation systems
In one case, we were able to successfully prove that a pavement marking company’s negligence resulted in a traffic slowdown that caused a terrible rear-end crash that killed a family of four on a busy North Carolina highway. In this case, we even subpoenaed traffic data from Google Maps to prove liability. We recovered more than $9 million in total compensation for surviving family members in this case (see disclaimer below).
