Seeking Damages for Rear-End Car Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that over 2.5 million of the 6 million car accidents (40%) that occur each year in the United States are rear-end collisions. Many negligent actions can lead to a rear-end auto accident, including drunk driving, distracted driving , speeding, texting while driving, and driving while fatigued. When pursuing compensation after an auto accident for your collision-caused injuries and losses, you will likely need to establish the other driver’s negligence by showing that the other driver owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, and caused your injuries as a result.

It is not uncommon for the other driver involved in a rear-end auto crash to blame you for part (or even all) of the collision. The State of Tennessee operates under the doctrine of modified comparative negligence, which means that your recovery could be reduced – up to 49% – based on the percentage of fault attributed to you by a jury. However, if your portion of the blame is 50% or more, you may not be awarded any damages. To defend against allegations of comparative fault, you should consider retaining a knowledgeable auto collision lawyer in the Jackson, Tennessee, area who can contact witnesses or retain experts when appropriate.

Common injuries sustained from rear-end car crashes include whiplash, lacerations, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries. After an accident, it is important that you seek medical attention for your injuries. Many injured victims in Jackson are treated for their injuries at medical facilities throughout the Madison County area. Keep in mind that it is important to obtain documentation of your injuries for your case when you are pursuing compensatory damages, which includes economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages compensate for monetary losses, including past and future medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic damages attempt to quantify intangible losses, such as disfigurement, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
