Rear-End Accident Lawyers in Connecticut

Committed to Providing Tenacious Legal Representation

By far the most common type of personal injury claim is the rear-end collision motor vehicle accident. In most cases, liability is assigned to the following vehicle based on the premise it was following too closely and/or failing to keep a proper lookout. Section 14-240 of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended through 2005, provides that “no driver of a motor vehicle shall follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having regard for the speed of such vehicles, the traffic upon and the condition of the highway and weather conditions.”

If you or a loved one were injured in this kind of accident, our Connecticut rear-end accident attorneys can help. Call us at (860) 245-2412 to schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation.

What Injuries Can You Get From Being Rear-Ended?

Fortunately, because both cars are proceeding in the same direction, injuries in a rear-end accident are sometimes less severe than those experienced in head-on or crossover accidents. Nevertheless, rear-end collisions can cause persistent and serious injuries. Even cervical sprains and strains, (sometimes referred to as “whiplash”), a common injury in rear-end accidents, can be painful and have permanent effects.

What Happens if I Got Rear-Ended But There's No Damage to My Car?

Today’s automobile bumpers mean that some of our clients in rear-end accidents are claiming physical injuries even though their cars are relatively unscathed. Insurance adjusters are sometimes skeptical of such “minimal impact” claims, but our rear-end accident lawyers in Connecticut try to work with our client’s doctors to explain to insurers, and if necessary, juries, how these injuries occur.
