Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of car accidents. Illinois law, in general, provides that there is a rebuttable presumption of negligence for the rear driver in a rear-end collision. This means that the rear-driver is presumed to have acted in a negligent manner, either through following too closely, or not paying attention, for example. However, this presumption is rebuttable if the rear driver can show that the negligence of the lead driver caused the car accident. For example, the rear driver may attempt to rebut the presumption by presenting evidence that the lead driver acted in a negligent manner by stopping abruptly, or in an area where the driver should not have or would not be expected to stop. Our Schaumberg car accident lawyers represent clients injured in rear-end collisions, and numerous other types of auto accidents occurring in Illinois.
Injuries sustained in rear-end collisions may not be apparent immediately following the car accident, such as injuries involving whiplash, herniated discs, and bulging discs. One of the most common causes of a herniated disc is trauma from a sudden force placed on the spine. This is very common in the neck and cervical spine and is most often a result of whiplash. If you or a loved one were involved in a car accident in which injury or death resulted, our Schaumberg personal injury attorneys can access the facts concerning the accident and injury and assist you in determining an appropriate course of action.
