Rear-end Car Accidents

Rear-end Car Accidents

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Rear-end accidents are one of the more common types of auto accidents. Often overlooked as being minor, rear-end accidents can in fact lead to serious injuries.

Whiplash is commonly caused by rear-end accidents. In whiplash, the head is violently thrown forward, overextending the muscles, ligaments and nerves of your neck. For some people, whiplash can cause chronic pain that may last for several months. Symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Dizziness
  • Vision disturbances
  • Numbness in your hands or arms
  • Chronic headaches
  • Memory and concentration problems

When the rear-end accident involves a semi-truck, wrongful death is often the outcome for the occupants of the passenger car. In these truck accidents, the passenger vehicle often collides with the back of the truck. Weather conditions, an unexpected stop by the truck driver and mechanical failures are all reasons a rear-end accident with a truck may occur.

If you have been in a rear-end car accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your injury-related expenses if the accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness.
