Many drivers know what it feels like to experience an Atlanta rear-end collision in a vehicle. You might be driving on a highway and traffic conditions require that you slow down or stop, but the vehicle behind you plows into the back of your car or truck. You might be driving on a city street and a car or truck hits you from the rear. These rear-end collisions are very common. We know of accidents in which a vehicle is simply pulled over on the road shoulder for some reason, perhaps a medical emergency or a flat tire, for example. The occupants of the vehicle have been seriously or fatally injured because a driver is driving too fast, distracted or under the influence and hits the vehicle at high speed. Many people do not realize that even when their vehicle is struck from behind on a city street, they can suffer a concussion that is real and significant.
