Someone Hit Me From Behind While Driving In Atlanta, Georgia
Rear-end collisions result when the front-end of another car contacts the rear-end of your car. Distractions such as talking on the phone, texting, changing the radio or GPS, eating and putting on make-up are many times the cause of rear-end collisions. Even talking to a passenger can be deemed a distraction for purposes of determining fault in a rear-end auto accident. If you hit the rear-end of another car, it is not automatically your fault if the other driver cut you off or something else out of your control caused the collision.
At the time of a car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident with personal injury, it is important that you make note of what the other driver was or may have been doing at the time. Make sure to tell the police officer who is called to the scene what you have seen and heard. Even at low speeds, an accident caused by being hit from behind while driving can cause long-lasting personal injuries due to whiplash, air bag abrasions, or internal damages from your seat belt. Seek out medical attention and report the accident to your insurance company even if you don't believe it was your fault.
