Kitchener Rear-End Collision Lawyer


While many drivers who’ve been involved in a rear-end collision can walk away from the accident scene without feeling a thing, in truly unfortunate circumstances, rear-end collisions can result in serious injuries, and even fatalities.

Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident in the Region of Waterloo. According to a recent collision report released by the Region of Waterloo’s Transportation and Environmental Services Department, in one year, 466 drivers in the area were seriously injured as the result of a rear-end collision.

If you’ve been injured as the result of a rear-end collision, a Kitchener car accident lawyer may be able to help you recover financial damages incurred as a result of the accident by:

  • Talking to eyewitnesses
  • Obtaining police reports
  • Examining photos and video surveillance from the accident
  • Analyzing medical records
  • Calculating the total amount of damages incurred
  • Negotiating with all parties involved

Understanding Rear-End Collisions

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) reported in 2019 that more than 8,000 rear-end collisions resulting in injuries occurred in the province of Ontario. The primary cause of rear-end collisions is distracted driving. It only takes a brief second to look away from the road and check a text message notification or talk to a passenger. In those split seconds, a distracted driver could cause an accident leading to property damage, and serious injuries.

Another leading cause of rear-end collisions is impaired driving. In Canada, on average, 175 people are injured by drunk drivers every day, per Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada). When a driver gets behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, their response times to changing road conditions may be reduced, and their general abilities to operate a vehicle may be seriously impaired. This impairment put inebriated drivers at greater risk of causing a serious collision with another driver.

While many people associate rear-end collisions with property damage or insignificant injuries, the results of a rear-end accident can be long-lasting, and in some cases, fatal.

Some common injuries sustained in rear-end collisions include broken or fractured bones, whiplash, soft tissue injuries, concussions, and even traumatic brain injuries. These injuries could lead to extended hospitalizations or an inability to return to work for a lengthy period of time. In these cases, the victims of rear-end collisions could face serious financial hardships.
