Rear-End Collision Injuries Can Be Deceptively Severe

Rear-end accidents can be complex personal injury cases because the damage of the vehicle does not correspond to the severity of the injuries sustained by the occupants of the car. Insurance companies often seize on this factor in an attempt to downplay the severity of the accident victims’ injuries.

As experienced Boston car accident attorneys, we understand the life-changing effects soft tissue injuries such as whiplash can have. It is these types of injuries that are often suffered by people injured in rear-end accident collisions.

We will investigate all aspects of your rear-end car crash. Oftentimes these accidents are the result of careless and inattentive drivers such as distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and other drivers who are not paying attention to the road. We will fight to hold the negligent party responsible and to help you pursue full and fair compensation for the losses you have suffered.

Most Common Rear-End Accident Injuries

As we mentioned above, rear-end collisions can be surprisingly deceptive when it comes to the injuries involved. All too often, we find that insurance carriers and other parties tend to treat rear-end accidents as less serious than other types of collisions. The reality is that any type of vehicle accident can result in severe injuries for those involved, even those that are perceived not to be severe.

The tendency to think that rear-end are less serious has to do with the fact that many of these incidents take place at slower speeds. However, regardless of what speed vehicles are traveling at whenever a collision occurs, the drivers and passengers involved can sustain significant injuries. Some of the most common rear-end accident injuries that our Boston personal injury attorneys help clients with in these situations include the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Other severe backward neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Deep bruising or contusions
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Severe sprains or strains

Any of these injuries could potentially sideline a victim for a significant period of time. Additionally, for rear-end collisions that occur when the rear driver is operating at a high rate of speed, the injuries in these cases can be much more severe than this. It is not uncommon for rear-end collisions to result in catastrophic traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.

Steps To Take Following A Rear-End Accident In Boston

There are various steps that victims of Boston rear-end accidents can take to ensure that they recover the compensation they are entitled to. Some of these steps begin immediately after a collision occurs and include:

  • Seeking medical care: Rear-end accident victims need to seek immediate medical care. It is not uncommon for victims in these situations to not feel any pain immediately following a collision. However, the signs and symptoms of many rear-end accident injuries do not appear until hours or even days after the incident occurs. A doctor needs to evaluate victims in these cases as soon as possible. Not only does this ensure the victim’s well-being, but it also establishes a good link between the crash and the injuries.
  • Gathering evidence: If it is safe to do so at the scene of the collision, those involved can use their phones to take photographs of everything. This includes vehicle damage, causes of the crash, traffic and weather conditions, debris, skid marks, injuries, and more. Additionally, the names and contact information of any eyewitnesses need to be gathered so that they can be contacted later on by the insurance carriers.
  • Contacting an attorney: The earlier an attorney can get involved, the better. If the careless or negligent actions of another driver caused the rear-end collision, an attorney can investigate the incident, gather evidence, and handle all communication with insurance carriers

Additionally, there are steps that rear-end accident victims need to take in the days and weeks that follow a collision to ensure that they are fully compensated. This includes continuing all follow-up medical visits until their doctor says they have reached maximum medical improvement. Failing to continue necessary medical care could result in the insurance carrier denying the claim altogether. Additionally, rear-end accident victims need to stay in contact with their attorney to ensure that their case is on track.
