Wrapping up our blog entitled Rear-End Collisions: 6 Things to Know, below, some more important facts about these types of traffic accidents will be revealed.

Rear-End Collisions: Here’s What Else You May Need to Know

5 – Crash avoidance systems may help reduce the incidence of rear-end collisions in the coming years.

The most important fact about rear-end collisions is that, after these accidents, injured people can turn to us for help pursuing compensation and justice.

The most important fact about rear-end collisions is that, after these accidents, injured people can turn to us for help pursuing compensation and justice.

While we’ve previously noted some potentially distressing facts about rear-end collisions, this fact switches gears, pointing to a more positive aspect – namely prevention efforts that can help reduce the incidence of rear-end collisions, better protecting people on the roads in the future.

In fact, forward collision warning systems represent one type of crash avoidance system that may go a long way to preventing – or mitigating the impacts of – rear-end collisions. With forward collision warning systems:

  • All-weather radar and/or cameras are installed in vehicles to detect the presence of other vehicles in front of a given car.
  • When these cameras and/or radar systems detect that another vehicle is coming within close range of a given vehicle, the forward collision warning system will sound an alert to warn the driver of a possibly imminent crash.
  • Some of these systems may also automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes to try to avoid and/or mitigate the impacts of potentially imminent rear-end collisions.

As these systems are becoming more standard on newly produced vehicles, it will be interesting to see if the growing presence of these (and other) crash avoidance systems on the roadway will result in notable decreases in the incidence of rear-end collisions (and/or other types of motor vehicle accidents) in the coming years.

6 – When negligence causes rear-end collisions and injuries, injured people can rely on us for help pursuing justice and compensation.

This fact about rear-end collisions is crucial for accident victims to be aware of, as after traffic accidents:

  • They will likely need to focus on their physical recovery.
  • Negligent drivers or others who are responsible for causing rear-end collisions can be liable for compensating accident victims.
  • Victims will have the best chances of obtaining the compensation to which they are likely entitled with the help of an experienced lawyer – like Colorado Springs Car Accident Attorney Kenneth Shakeshaft.
