Little Rock Tailgating Accidents
When someone is driving within a couple of feet of the rear bumper of the vehicle in front of him, he or she may be committing the act of tailgating. By driving so close to the vehicle in front of him or her, the amount of time in which the tailgater has to react when the other driver brakes is significantly diminished. Unsurprisingly, tailgating usually results in a motor vehicle collision in which unfortunate injuries are sustained. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from a tailgating accident, you should contact the Little Rock car accident attorneys of Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today. With over 30 lawyers and more than 120 support staff members, we are a large regional personal injury law firm that is dedicated to representing people who have been injured in motor vehicle wrecks throughout the South.What to Do After a Tailgating Accident
Drivers tailgate for different reasons. Some do it when they experience road rage, while others unknowingly do it due to being fatigued or distracted while they drive. For example, you could be driving along West Markham Street near the Little Rock District Court – located at 600 West Markham Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201 – and get rear-ended by someone who was tailgating you because they were driving while fatigued and on the verge of falling asleep at the wheel.
Tailgating collisions often leave victims with whiplash, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries. Even if you only sustain soreness, headaches, a few scrapes, and a couple of contusions from a motor vehicle collision, it is helpful to have your injuries evaluated by a medical professional. Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock, located at 9601 Baptist Health Drive, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205, is one of several medical facilities in the Little Rock area where injured people seek medical attention after an auto accident. In order to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses, you will need to prove that the defendant’s negligence caused you to sustain those injuries and losses.
Substantiating your claim of negligence can be much easier with the guidance and assistance of a car wreck lawyer in Little Rock. Once liability has been established, the focus can shift to damages, and a lawyer can also inform you of all of the different types of damages that you may be eligible to recover. The types and amount of damages you may be awarded are dependent upon the nature and severity of your injuries and losses. You can be awarded economic damages for monetary losses, including medical bills and lost wages, and non-economic damages for intangible losses, such as loss of consortium and mental anguish.Injured in Little Rock?
