Types of Injuries
A rear-end collision can cause serious injuries to the body and brain. Even if you don’t hit your head, you may suffer a traumatic brain injury. These injuries can be hard to detect at first, and symptoms may occur weeks after the accident. Symptoms may include dizziness, headaches, memory loss, vision problems and difficulty thinking and communicating clearly.
People in rear-end accidents may suffer whiplash and other spinal injuries. No matter what type of injury you have, you need to get medical care immediately. You also need compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost wages, and to compensate you for your pain and suffering, and loss of quality of life.
One of the most important steps in any car accident case is to determine who was at fault. In rear-end collisions, the fault usually lies with the car in back. Even if the car in front slows or stops, the car in back is responsible for avoiding the accident. In the case of a multi-car accident, we must investigate to determine liability.
Rear-end collisions may be the result of distracted driving. Texting while driving is against the law in Colorado. If this caused your accident, we may be able to recover punitive damages along with compensation for your injuries. Drunk driving is another common cause of rear-end collisions.
