Rear-End Collisions in Modesto
Car accidents where one vehicle runs into another vehicle from behind are the most common form of collisions in the country. These rear-end accidents are usually caused by tailgating, distracted driving, unexpected stops, or poor weather conditions.
In order to maintain a safe stopping distance, the law requires that you leave roughly one full car length between your car and the car in front of you for every 10 miles per hour of your current speed. Recent highway driving data and statistics indicate that 90 percent of all motorists do not follow this regulation under normal driving conditions.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a rear-end collision then you may have a right to financial compensation to cover any damages such as hospital bills, lost wages due to time away from work, pain and suffering, or even wrongful death.
