Rear-end collisions are usually unexpected, happening when you're slowing to a stop or even when you're parked. Another driver may not see that you're ahead of them, or they might fall asleep behind the wheel and hit your vehicle. In some cases, the drivers are texting and don't look up in time to stop.
When you're working a job that requires travel, there is always the possibility that you could be involved in an auto accident. On-the-job auto accidents are relatively common, affecting people as they travel to worksites or make deliveries.
Oil field workers, warehouse workers, construction workers, personal care assistants and a multitude of other professionals work strenuous jobs that have certain risks. Sometimes these jobs lead to injuries that require filing a workers’ compensation claim.
Pedestrians are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to collisions. If a vehicle hits them, they have no real protection against the impact. Their bodies take the entire force of the blow, which can result in fatal injuries.
