    Rear end shunts can be a particularly damaging accident as they may occur in multiple collisions with other more powerful vehicles, causing distressing injuries to occur to every occupant of a vehicle not just their driver.

    If you, or someone close to you, have been involved in a rear end shunt with other vehicles which were caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue car accident claims in Chesterfield using a professional law firm to act on your behalf.

    What is a rear end shunt and where do they occur?

    A rear end shunt is the term given to a type of road traffic collision. It occurs when one vehicle runs into the rear of the vehicle in front causing it to shunt forwards. This can occur with just one vehicle running into the rear of a vehicle or a long line of vehicles may be shunted forwards, if they are stationary in a queue of traffic and hit from the rear.

    Rear end shunts are a common accident to occur in a line of stationary traffic such as at traffic lights, roundabouts or approaching junctions such as give way junctions.

    What are the causes of rear end shunts?

    One of the most common causes of rear end shunts is when a vehicle is driving too close to the vehicles in front and they fail to leave adequate stopping distances between their vehicle and the vehicles travelling in front.

    In addition, rear end shunts may be driving too fast for the volume and flow of traffic causing them to run into the rear of the vehicles in front if they are forced to brake suddenly.

    Another cause of rear end shunts may be driving too close to a vehicle in front due to poor weather conditions such as fog, when drivers may tail light each other to follow traffic ahead in conditions of poor or limited visibility.
