Your Number – One Choice for Philadelphia Rear – End Accident Attorneys
Rear-end accidents can occur in a variety of ways. Automobiles can collide in several different locations on a vehicle and at a variety of angles. The severity of a driver’s injuries caused by a car accident depends on the type of crash that occurs. Unfortunately, the most seemingly mild collision can result in serious, long-lasting injuries.
Rear-End Accidents Aren’t As Mild As Most Think
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) reported that 28% of auto accidents are rear-end collisions. A rear-end collision is when the front of one car crashes into the rear end of another car. This collision is most common in heavy traffic, but is not always the case. Rear-end accidents are typically thought of as a less serious collision, but almost 2,000 people died in rear-end collision in 2012 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Term Whiplash Covers a Variety of Symptoms
Whiplash is the most common injury associated with rear-end auto accidents. Whiplash is not a singular condition. The term whiplash generalizes several types of damage to the soft tissue in the neck. This damage stems from when the head is jerked forward in a sudden movement and then snaps back.
Whiplash Symptoms Include:
- Blurred or double vision
- Stiffness and pain in the neck
- Severe headaches and weakness in the arms
- Difficulty concentrating
- Shoulder and back pain
- Ringing in the ears
- Insomnia and sleep disturbances
- Moodiness and irritability
- Memory issues
- Tingling and numbness
- Pain when moving your head
Whiplash victims typically require extensive physical therapy combined with a variety of medical treatments before they can fully recover. Whiplash victims who were involved in rear-end accidents often suffer from concussions, spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, facial fractures, contusions, lacerations, and much more. All of these injuries can cause medical bills to stack up, a loss of income and other financial burdens.
