Among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents in New York is the Rear End Collision and they account for nearly 30% of all motor vehicle accidents according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administrations. Rear-end collision accidents happen when one motor vehicle strikes another from behind. In New York, traffic and congestion result in a large number of rear end collision accidents every year.

A driver who crashes into the car in front of him is generally presumed to be at fault for the accident because the driver failed to maintain a safe driving distance between his vehicle and the vehicle in front of him. Regardless of the force of the impact, serious personal injuries can occur. Among the more common type of injuries in rear end collision accidents are those that involve the head and neck. These injuries may not be apparent at first, but their symptoms often intensify in the days following the accident resulting in the need for extensive medical treatment and even surgical intervention.
