Rear-End Collisions in Huntington Station
Just like any other type of car accident, most of the people involved in a rear-end collision incur injuries. These can range from mild to critical to fatal. The majority of rear-end collision victims have to endure whiplash and broken bones are not uncommon.
At slow speeds, these accidents are merely fender benders which are not considered very severe accidents. On the highway, however, rear-end collisions can cause life-long, debilitating injuries and even fatalities.
