There are over 2.5 million rear end collisions in the United States annually. A rear-end collision is the most common type of automobile accident and has the least number of fatalities connected to it.
Unfortunately, due to this fact, insurance companies feel the occupants of an automobile impacted in a rear end collision escaped injury. That fact is not true in every case. Low speed, rear end collisions can produce serious injuries for the people involved. The human body was not designed to absorb the impact of a collision the way a car bumper was.
Whiplash is the most common injury suffered in a low impact rear end collision. Whiplash is a soft tissue trauma to the muscles and ligaments of the neck, causing pain, swelling, stiffness, headache, nausea, numbness and loss of balance.
An experienced rear end collision accident attorney will tell you that in almost 100% of instances, the driver who rear ended you is at fault. When you suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence you deserve to be compensated for your injuries.
