Rear-end collisions can cause serious injuries, even when the vehicle is traveling at low speeds.

When a vehicle is struck from behind, the driver and passengers can be violently thrust forward and jerked backward just as quickly. The most common injuries in rear-end collisions involve soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash. However, many different types of injuries can manifest in a rear-end car accident, including:

  • Wrist injuries due to a driver bracing for impact
  • Head or brain injuries caused by a passenger impacting the dash or windshield
  • Knee injuries caused by a passenger being crushed into the dash or a seat in front of him or her
  • Neck, back and spine injuries or whiplash injuries resulting from the forward and backward force of the accident
  • Fractures and other serious injuries

We build each car accident case to obtain a fair settlement.
