Rear-End Collisions in San Jose, CA

Consulting with a San Jose Car Accident Attorney

Rear-end auto collisions occur when one vehicle is hit from behind by another vehicle. There are various factors that can determine how serious these types of car accidents will be, including the speed of both vehicles involved and the size and weight of each vehicle. Rear-end collisions can be especially damaging when a smaller vehicle is hit by a much larger vehicle, or when a stopped vehicle is hit by another vehicle that is travelling at high speeds. Rear-end collisions can easily cause multi-vehicle accidents that work like a chain reaction—a vehicle gets hit from behind, forcing it to hit the vehicle in front of it. In rear-end collisions, either of the drivers can be at fault.
