VT & NH Rear End Collisions Happen When...
Rear-end collisions account for a third of all wrecks on our roads, making them one the biggest dangers to Vermont and New Hampshire drivers.
Rear-end collisions can cause numerous types of injuries, including whiplash, which can lead to back, neck, or head injuries. Those involved in rear-end collisions can also suffer broken bones, sprains, dislocations, burns, and disfigurement.
There are many possible causes of rear-end collisions:
- The lead vehicle brakes hard and stops suddenly
- Inclement weather or slick roads hamper braking
- Glare caused by heavy fog limits visibility
- Tailgating or aggressive driving limits stopping time
- A driver is distracted or not paying attention behind the wheel
Rear-end collisions often occur at intersections when one car stops for a stop light or stop sign. They can also occur when traffic is merging, slowing down, or going into a construction zone.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a rear-end collision, it is important that you contact a New Hampshire car accident attorney today. Back or neck injuries from whiplash may take years to develop, and an experienced accident attorney can ensure that you recover damages for both current and future medical care.
