Tampa Rear End Accidents Attorneys
Tampa’s ABC Action News recently reported on the top five locations in the Tampa Bay area where drivers are most likely to be involved in a rear-end accident. Tampa’s top rear-end crash locations included:
• I-75 and Brandon Boulevard,
• I-75 and I-4,
• US -19 and Tampa Road,
• I-275 and I-4, and
• I-275 and US-92 (Dale Mabry Highway).
According to the Florida Department of Transportation, the most common time to get in a wreck is during rush hour on Friday around 5:00 p.m. Additionally, the most common age group for drivers to be involved in rear-end collisions is the 20 – 24 range. The occurrence of rear-end accidents appears to decrease as the age of the drivers increase. As the news report stated: “Young drivers and rush hour don’t mix.”
Injuries from Rear-End Impacts
Typically, rear-end injury accidents occur when a vehicle is stopped and then struck from behind by a moving car or truck. As a result of the unexpected, heavy impact, the occupants of the stopped vehicle (or vehicle being struck) are more likely to suffer greater injuries. Injuries that commonly occur as a result of rear-end accidents include: cranial and facial injuries, TMJ injuries, and neck (whiplash), shoulder, back and knee injuries.
