There isn’t a driver in Los Angeles County who hasn’t looked in the rear-view mirror and worried about being rear-ended. Drivers are prone to speeding on our local roads, and when you are sitting at a red light, you naturally grow anxious about the cars behind you.

When most people imagine a rear-end collision, they assume a fender bender. But, in reality, these collisions often occur at high speeds and involve a great deal of trauma for the victims. Rear-end collisions made up 32% of all accidents in the United States in a recent year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Of these collisions, more than 2,000 ended in death and nearly 600,000 in injury.
Your average sedan can be totaled if rear-end by a fully loaded semi-truck, or even a powerful SUV or jeep. While the back of a car will absorb the majority of the damage, most modern airbags do not deploy in rear-end collisions. They are designed to deploy primarily when the front of the car hits another object, meaning accident victims in rear-end crashes may suffer severe injuries, including brain trauma.
Around Glendale, rear-end collisions are common at major intersections like Colorado and Pacific or Brand and Goode. Intersection accidents can be especially dangerous as drivers can be pushed into oncoming traffic and be further injured in T-bone accidents. These accidents are also especially dangerous for motorcycle riders, who can easily be thrown from their vehicles and suffer lifelong injuries.
Typically, if another driver rear-ends you, then they are liable for the accident. This means you can file a claim against their insurance company to recover full compensation for your injuries. In addition, if you have underinsured motorist coverage (UM), then you can file a claim with your own insurance company if the other driver’s insurance does not fully cover the costs of your injuries.
While rear-end collisions are often straightforward, insurance companies love to haggle over the details of any crash. It may be clear to you that the other driver is at fault, but you will still need to prove that their negligent actions contributed to the accident. Oftentimes, this means showing that the other driver was:
