How Bad is a Rear-End Accident?

Rear-end accidents are among the most common types of car accidents in Mississippi and the rest of the country. However, them being common does not mean that they are no big deal. Severe injuries can happen in a rear-end accident, and a complex or heated car accident claim can follow.

People who have been hurt in a rear-end accident might suffer from:

  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Brain damage or head trauma

What is Whiplash & Is It Serious?

Whiplash is a neck injury that is caused by the neck whipping back and forth. Due to the way that the force of an impact in a rear-end collision is distributed throughout the front car, whiplash is quite common among people who were in the front car. People in the rear car can suffer whiplash, but it is less likely.

Whiplash symptoms can include:

  • Neck stiffness
  • Pain when moving or looking around
  • Migraines
  • Balance issues

You should see a medical provider after being in a rear-end collision because whiplash can occur at most speeds. However, whiplash usually starts as a mild ache that you could be tempted to ignore. Yet a few hours or days later and it can be extremely painful to the point of being debilitating. Mama Justice is here to tell you to take yourself to urgent care if you have not gone already. Once you have seen a doctor and been given a diagnosis, you can call us to learn about starting a rear-end accident claim.

Can the Front Car Be Liable in a Rear-End Accident?

There are times when the car in the front of a rear-end accident is liable for the accident, so you can’t assume that you will automatically win a claim just because you were in the front car.

Front cars in rear-end accidents can be found at-fault if they:

  • Backed up and hit someone
  • Stopped in the middle of moving traffic
  • Did not have any taillights
  • Slammed the brakes without reason, called “brake checking”

We can help you prove that you were not liable for your rear-end accident if you were in the front car. Our team also has the experience and knowledge needed to represent drivers in the rear car who were hurt and did not cause the accident. For example, rear-end accidents in parking lots are oftentimes caused by someone backing out of a spot too quickly, so the liability should not be placed on the rear-car.

A Great Case Starts with Great Care

Our Tupelo rear-end accident lawyers know that you’re in a tough spot after being hit by a reckless driver, like someone who was texting and didn’t notice that traffic had stopped in front of them. We want to make your case as easy for you as possible by showing you genuine care and compassion from the start. Putting your worries at ease is just one of many ways that Mama Justice stands out from the competition.
