If you have been hurt in a rear-end crash caused by a negligent driver, call The Fang Law Firm to schedule a consultation. Our experienced Denver rear-end accident attorneys can tell you if you have a case and what damages you may be entitled to claim.

Why You Need an Attorney

Proving liability is not always easy after a rear-end crash. If you have been rear-ended, it is not a given that the driver who hit you was at fault for the accident. Under Colorado comparative negligence laws, the other side will attempt to assign a degree of fault for the accident to you. You may recover damages if the other party is found to have been more at fault than you were, but your recovery will be reduced by the percentage of fault you are assigned.

Our experienced Denver car accident lawyers can:

  • Investigate your accident
  • Collect and preserve evidence
  • Determine liability
  • Fight for full and fair compensation, in negotiations or in court

How Do Rear-End Collisions Occur?

The Insurance Information Institute (III) reports that in a recent year, there were 2,203 fatal rear-end accidents in the U.S. and 556,000 causing injuries. As determined in a study published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), common causes of rear-end crashes include:

  • Distracted driving: Researchers found that driver distraction was the leading causes of rear-end accidents. Distraction includes texting and talking on cell phones, distraction caused by passengers, eating and drinking, and daydreaming.
  • Tailgating: Following too closely can contribute to rear-end collisions. When the driver in front stops is forced by traffic conditions to stop or decelerate suddenly, a tailgating driver behind has little time to react.
  • Improper lane changing and merging: Drivers who change lanes or merge with traffic without allowing enough distance for an oncoming vehicle can cause rear-end accidents.
  • Speeding: The faster a vehicle is traveling, the more distance it needs to stop. Speeding can contribute to both the incidence of rear-end collisions and the severity of the injuries they cause.

Common Injuries in a Rear-End Accident

Rear-end collisions are among the most frequently occurring accidents in the U.S. They can cause a variety of injuries, ranging widely in severity, depending on the circumstances surrounding the crash. Common rear-end accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Seatbelt injuries
  • Facial injuries and disfigurement
