Larimer County Rear-End Collision Attorneys

Larimer County Rear-End Collision Attorneys

Lawyers for Rear Impact Crashes in Weld County and Boulder County

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end collisions are the most common type of motor vehicle accident. In fact, nearly one-third of all accidents in the United States involve a rear impact of some kind. At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we appreciate that most rear-end crashes do not result in fatalities or catastrophic injuries, but we know that many such accidents do create long-lasting health concerns for victims.

Understanding Colorado Rear-End Crashes

A rear-end collision occurs when a car, truck, or motorcycle crashes into the back end of the vehicle in front of it. The force of the collision is then dissipated through the impacted vehicle in such a way its occupants may be jolted or thrown forward. While immediate, obvious injuries are possible, many victims develop symptoms, including back pain and neck pain in the days and weeks that follow. Even low-speed crashes can cause severe injuries. Some of the most common injuries suffered in rear-end collisions include:

  • Head and brain injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI):
  • Soft tissue injuries, including “whiplash”—the hyperextension of the muscles and tendons of the neck;
  • Spinal injuries, including herniated discs in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar region of the spine; and
  • Broken bones, including arm and leg fractures, and injuries to the knee and shoulder joints.

In most rear-end collision situations, the driver who crashed into the back of another vehicle is usually liable for causing the crash. This is true even if the first car slowed or stopped suddenly. It is the responsibility of every driver on the road to be aware of the vehicles in front of them and to leave sufficient space to stop if necessary. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to do so because they are distracted by cell phones, are tailgating or driving aggressively, or are simply following too closely.
