Many of us look at rear-end accidents as "fender benders" that don’t produce real injuries; sometimes that’s the case. In other cases, drivers and passengers experience life-changing injuries that produce chronic pain and result in the need for rehabilitative treatment, surgery and other health care that can last for years.
Rear-end collisions can cause serious neck and back injuries, as well as other soft-tissue injuries. Whiplash and impact can occur because of the negligence of another driver tailgating in rush-hour traffic, making a sudden stop, texting while driving or otherwise behaving dangerously.
Rear-end injuries may not be obvious immediately – sometimes because of the adrenaline rush that can accompany an accident. It is important to get proper medical care if you feel pain, become nauseous or experience other symptoms of injury following a collision. It is also important to get legal advice if you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence.
