Automobile accidents can be devastating, and rear end collisions are certainly no exception. Most people believe that when a person has been hit from behind, the driver in the rear is automatically at fault. Oftentimes, though, determining liability in a rear-end collision is not so cut and dried. Every driver has a duty of care while they are on the roadway. In order to file a claim against an insurance company following a rear end collision there must be a presentation of proof that the party charged violated their duty of care.
Proving The Duty Of Care
If you suffered an injury in a rear-end collision in the Bridgeport area — or in any Connecticut coastal community — call the lawyers of Miller, Rosnick, D'Amico, August & Butler, P.C. We have over 150 years of combined experience handling motor vehicle collision cases. We understand that the gathering evidence to prove a driver violated the burden of care can be an overwhelming and daunting task for those who are unfamiliar with the legal system. To prove a violation of the duty of care the following must be proven by a preponderance of the evidence:
- The driver did not follow local traffic laws
- The driver was driving recklessly
- The driver's vehicle was not roadworthy or in proper working condition
- The driver failed to properly make concessions to and be aware of other drivers
Common Types Of Injuries Suffered In Rear-End Collisions Include:
- Whiplash, neck and upper shoulder injuries
- Brain hemorrhage from sudden acceleration and deceleration
- Shoulder dislocation
- Facial crush injuries
- Knee and lower leg injuries
