That stat is especially worrisome because intersection car accidents tend to be some of the most dangerous.

Rear-end accidents are frequent occurrences. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 28% of all crashes are rear end collisions.

Types of fractures that occur in rear end collisions are complete fractures where the bone cracks in two separate places, single fractures where the bone cracks in only one place, and compound fractures. Compound fractures are serious because these are open fractures where broken bone pierces through the skin. Bleeding and infection are frequent problems in compound fractures.

Leading Reasons for Dallas Rear End Car Accidents

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on June 28, 2016

Rear end car accidents can be terrifying, especially because we rarely see them coming. While driving, our eyes are trained to fixate on what is in front and to the side of us, but it’s often what is behind us that can be the most dangerous.
