Ohio and Pennsylvania Car Accident Lawyer
Rear-end collisions are among the leading types of accidents in America, and they result in some of the most serious types of injuries. Often, rear-enders are the result of a distracted driver texting or talking on the cell phone in heavy traffic, not able to stop quickly enough when the traffic comes to a halt.
Rear-end collisions typically cause serious injuries to the shoulders, neck and back. When struck from behind, the forward thrust of the body causes a whipping action that the human frame isn't build to withstand. Even when the body does not come in contact with the steering wheel or interior of the car, the sudden whip and deceleration can cause serious bone, muscle, joint and even internal organ damage. Sudden acceleration and deceleration of the brain against the inside of the skull often results in hematoma, concussion and other types of closed head wounds, even when there is no outward injury to the head.
