Springfield woman cited in rear-end collision

Car accidents in Springfield are all too common on today's roads. Even as vehicle safety standards have improved and new features have been created to help people try and avoid accidents, they still occur. Unfortunately, there's nothing that vehicle engineers can do to remove human error from the equation, and more often than not, that's usually what causes most car collisions. The number of ways that a driver can make a mistake behind the wheel that leads to an accident is endless, ranging from driving while impaired to simple carelessness or lack of attention.

A simple case of one driver following another too closely appears to have been the cause of a recent accident in Springfield. A woman following a truck had little time to stop and avoid colliding with her vehicle into the back end of a truck after the truck driver stopped suddenly. Although the reason for truck's sudden stop was unreported, it was the woman who ended being cited by police.

Fortunately for the two drivers involved in this particular collision, neither sustained any serious injuries. However, that isn't always the case. Injuries from car accidents can be both debilitating and disabling, and may leave victims with a large amount of medical debt. In such cases, the driver responsible for causing the car accident may held liable for any damages, be they to the damage to the car or injuries to its passengers. This often remains true even in those cases where no blatant recklessness by the driver was displayed. Those looking to earn that compensation from another party may wish to secure the services if an experienced personal injury lawyer to assist in doing so.
