Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/06/2019 -- Silver & Silver, a team of personal injury lawyers serving Philadelphia, PA, and beyond, are who people turn to when they're hurt in rear-end motor vehicle collisions. Often, these accidents happen because another driver was tailgating, or following too closely, and could not stop in time to avoid a collision.
Pennsylvania law stipulates that drivers must maintain a following distance that is "reasonable and prudent" in relation to road conditions and traffic volume. However, many drivers fail to pay due attention to their following distance, and as a result, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in rear-end collisions across the U.S. every year. Rear-end collisions can cause whiplash, concussions, broken bones, and even spinal cord damage, among other serious injuries.
The personal injury attorneys at Silver & Silver have successfully represented drivers who were injured because of another's negligence and need compensation to pay medical bills and other living expenses. Insurance companies can be a formidable opponent for motorists filing personal injury claims, but Silver & Silver will spare accident victims that extra stress and do all they can to help get them the money they deserve.
It's not always possible to avoid rear-end collisions, but Silver & Silver recommends that all drivers monitor their following distance, particularly in inclement weather. Drivers should also adhere to the "two-second rule"—a method of measuring safe following distance that involves watching the previous car pass a stationary object, then counting out at least two seconds before the next car passes that same object.
Other ways to minimize tailgating are to mind the speed limit at all times, remain in the designated travel lanes, and only use passing lanes when it's absolutely necessary to pass another vehicle.
Motorists injured in a rear-end collision through no fault of their own are strongly encouraged to schedule a consultation with the Philadelphia, PA, auto and truck accident lawyers at Silver & Silver today. To learn more about the firm, please visit http://www.silverandsilver.com/.
