Rear-End Car Accidents

Kingston Personal Injury Lawyer

As a driver struck from behind in a rear-end accident, it might be obvious to you that you were not the one to blame for your car accident, but it may not be to any other party. Do not be surprised if a driver that slams into you while you are stopped at a red light still tries to pass some liability onto you. In turn, the negligent driver’s insurance company may try to sell the same story. You have to prove you were not liable if you want to collect full compensation.

Injuries Suffered in Rear-End Accidents

According to accident statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), other safety groups, and even insurance companies, rear-end accident are the most common type of traffic collision. They also often involve serious injuries, especially for the people in the front vehicle.

Injuries not uncommon to rear-end accidents include:

Whiplash is perhaps the most common of injuries suffered in a rear-end collision. It occurs when someone’s body is forcibly thrust forward and suddenly, causing the neck to jerk backwards, then forwards, and then back again. This rapid shaking of the neck can disrupt nerves, tendons, muscles, and even the spinal column. The symptoms of whiplash can include chronic pain, frequent migraines, insomnia, inability to focus, and much more. Correcting it also may require surgery, such as spinal disc fusion.
