Rear-end collision injures two in Ohio

A Hancock County collision that sent one person to the hospital was the result of a rear-end crash, according to authorities. The car accident occurred during the afternoon March 25 when a 33-year-old Fostoria driver who was traveling west on State Route 12 struck a 24-year-old Risingsun driver from behind as he slowed down to turn.

The passengers in the victim's car, two of whom were toddlers, were checked for injuries at the scene. One 22-year-old woman was transported to an area hospital to have her injuries assessed. The rear driver was cited for failure to keep a safe distance and for having an invalid driver's license at the time of the crash.

Rear-end collisions are almost always attributed to the rear driver for failure to yield or failure to maintain control over the vehicle. The fact that this driver was unlicensed has also resulted in charges. Many drivers who do not have a valid operator's license also do not have any liability insurance since most insurance companies require proof of a valid license before issuing a policy.

Victims who have suffered injuries from a rear-end collision may be entitled to collect damages from the at-fault driver. However, this can be difficult to do, especially if the driver is uninsured. In these cases, victims may benefit from the advice and assistance of a personal injury attorney. An attorney may be able to help the victims determine who is at fault for the accident and pinpoint the assets that may be available to pay for damages such as hospital bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and others costs associated with a rear-end crash.
