Common Factors in Rear-End Accidents
Rear-end accidents occur all the time on the Georgia roadways. The following are some common factors in rear-end accidents:
- Tailgating: Drivers who follow too closely behind another vehicle may not have enough time to stop. Drivers generally should stay three seconds behind the vehicle in front of them.
- Driver distraction: Using hand-held cell phones, or portable electronic devices such as MP3 players or personal digital assistants (PDAs), can distract the driver. In some cases, the driver may be changing settings on the radio, eating while driving or even looking at something on the side of the road.
- Defects: Brake failure or other mechanical defects can be factors in a rear-end collision. In some cases, an accident victim may be able to pursue a product liability case.
