Rear-End Collisions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 40 percent of motor vehicle accidents are rear-end collisions. When drivers and passengers are hit suddenly from behind, they often suffer severe head and neck injuries. An auto accident lawyer may be required to prove negligence.
A traffic collision, also called a motor vehicle collision (MVC) among other terms, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree, pole or building. Traffic collisions often result in injury, death, and property damage.
