Injuries Rear-End Accidents Can Cause

Being hit by a driver while you’re stopped at a red light or stop sign is horrible. The higher the other driver’s speed, the greater the impact, too, which means you can be catastrophically injured if they don’t slow down before they rear-end you. Please see a medical provider as soon as possible if you have not already. You might have serious underlying injuries that need to be evaluated and addressed, but you wouldn’t know it if you hadn’t seen the doctor.

Rear-end accidents often cause the following injuries to people in the front car:

  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Fractures

Whiplash Injuries from a Rear-End Crash

One of the worst types of injuries you can suffer in a rear-end accident is also one of the most common: whiplash. When the neck is snapped back and forth suddenly, the muscles, tendons, and nerves are put under incredible strain, which can manifest as a whiplash injury. Although it is a soft tissue injury, whiplash is often severe and life-changing.

People living with whiplash symptoms have to deal with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Migraines
  • Balance loss

If your neck is aching at all after being in a rear-end collision, then you should see a medical provider as soon as you can. It could be the first sign of a whiplash injury. People often make the mistake of ignoring neck ache because it seems like normal pain after a crash, only for it to get much worse in a few days as whiplash sets in.

Rear-End Accidents in Parking Lots

Where do rear-end accidents happen the most? Many of them happen at stopped intersections or traffic on the highway. But there are also countless rear-end accidents in parking lots across the country every year.

Parking lot accidents caused by someone who was backing out of a space create a complicated liability situation. It might seem like the driver who was hit is the one who is to blame because the damage could be on their front bumper and the other car’s rear bumper. But why would you be liable because someone backed up without checking behind them? You shouldn’t be, and Mama Justice can help prove that you aren’t with a careful examination of the evidence.
