Baltimore Rear End Accident Injuries
By Cohen & Dwin, P.A. on August 29, 2018 | In Personal Injury
The most common auto accident is rear end collisions. Over two million rear end accidents are reported each year across the country. While most rear end accidents are relatively minor, and at low speed, serious injuries can still occur. Most motor vehicles these days are very well built with sturdy bumpers to absorb most of the impact of a rear end collision. However, occupants of the vehicle can still be thrown forward and then backward, even in low speed rear end collisions. The most common injury in these cases is whiplash. Whiplash injuries are caused by the violent and sudden jerking of the neck caused when the vehicle is hit from behind. The involuntary snapping back and forth of the neck injures the soft tissue and vertebrae of the neck and back. Whiplash injuries can lead to large medical bills and life-long pain and suffering that decreases the quality of life for the victim.
