Rear-End Collisions can Cause Serious, Long-Lasting Physical Injuries
Often times a rear-end car accident may not immediately result in a catastrophic or debilitating injury as head-on collisions do. Rear-end collision injuries can manifest later, sometime after the accident. This has to do with the fact that rear-end collisions typically occur at lower speeds than head-on collisions or being involved in a side impact accident at an intersection.
Even at a lesser speed a rear-end crash can cause serious and severe injuries in the future. These injuries should not be ignored as they may impede your ability to work, live & function normally in everyday life. This is where the expertise of an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney can be very beneficial in getting you the appropriate financial compensation.
If you have been involved in an accident and sustained an injury as a result it may make sense to consult with a Media, PA injury lawyer regarding getting the compensation you deserve.
Rear-End Car Collisions Can Cause A Wide Range Of Injuries
There are many types of injuries that can be sustained in an auto accident. The type and severity of injury is largely related to the type and angle of accident as well as mechanical factors like speed at impact. Some of these injuries are head, brain & neck injuries. Spinal cord injuries, which include disc herniation, are common in rear- end accidents. Soft tissue injuries such as contusions, discoloration & bruising of the skin. Soft tissue injuries, while often minor can cause the victim extreme discomfort. Joint, ligament & connective tissue injuries are also common as a result of a rear-end collision. Examples would be tearing of the ACL in the knee, or rotator cuff in the shoulder. Also, musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash, sprains and strains are very common in auto accidents regardless of the type of accident or speed at which accident occurred.
Common Scenarios Involving Rear-End Collisions
- Being stopped at a red light
- Being stopped at a stop sign
- Stopping at a toll booth
- Unexpected slowing or stopping on a highway or interstate
- Unanticipated slowing or stopping in construction zone
