NEW HAVEN REAR-END COLLISIONS AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
DETERMINING FAULT AND DAMAGES IN REAR-END COLLISIONS
A New Haven rear-end auto accident, even at low speed, can cause serious neck, back and head injuries. While the driver following is frequently to blame, liability is not always clear-cut. Because of these medical and legal issues, it is important to work with experienced lawyers who understand such cases.
The LoRicco Law Firm serves injury victims in Greater New Haven and other Connecticut Shoreline communities. We have represented victims of car accidents for over 50 years, including our share of rear-end collisions. Our attorneys are aggressive in pursuing maximum damages for clients and their families to make sure their needs are met for past, present and future damages.
REAR-END ACCIDENTS AT INTERSECTIONS OR IN TRAFFIC
We thoroughly investigate accidents, which may include looking at police reports, witness statements, skid marks and debris — even the onboard computers in the respective vehicles. We work with outside experts as necessary to establish negligence in rear-end collisions involving circumstances such as:
- Tailgating or aggressive driving
- Inattention in stop-and-go traffic
- Texting while driving
- Worn brakes
- Nonworking brake lights
- Cutting off another driver
- Driving too fast on ice and snow
Unlike accidents in which front or side air bags cushion the impact, rear-end accidents can cause serious trauma. This includes herniated disks, fractured vertebrae and severe whiplash (neck sprain). The violent whipsawing action can also cause concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Victims must be closely monitored for delayed signs of injury.
PROVING DAMAGES TO COVER CLIENTS’ NEEDS
We work with clients and their families to illustrate the full impact of serious car accidents, including:
- Past, present and future medical treatment
- Lost income if the injuries prevent working
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Long-term care and disability
- Wrongful death benefits
We are known for treating our clients like members of our own family. We will do everything in our power to hold negligent parties accountable for rightful compensation, including taking the case to trial if necessary.
