Earlier this week, three people were injured in Hernando County when their vehicle was rear ended by an SUV pushing them nearly 200 feet. Two people were transported to the hospital due to injuries.
Rear end accidents are very common throughout Hernando, Citrus, and Pasco Counties and Florida Law presumes that the person driving the vehicle that struck another from behind is negligent. This presumption can be overcome, but only in certain circumstances. The most common injury in a rear end crash is often to the person's spine and can be characterized as whiplash or cervical sprain or strain. In more serious crashes, the person can suffer herniations or protrusions in their spine.
