Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accidents on the road today. There are roughly 2.5 million read-end accidents each year in the United States. These accidents usually happen when a driver is distracted.
Victims of rear-end crashes often suffer what is known as ‘soft tissue injuries.’ As a result, insurance companies usually claim that victims of rear-end crashes do not have significant injuries, but at The Barnes Firm, we know how serious these injuries can be, and how they can affect an individual for years. An example of a soft-tissue injury would be whiplash, and the pain could manifest days, or even years after the accident.
Our law firm can use some of the area’s top medical professionals as expert witnesses, and they can help improve the value of your case when the insurance company claims you’re not seriously hurt. Your physician may refer you to have an MRI, and this could uncover a more serious problem, such as a herniated or a bulging disc.
In most cases, someone is clearly responsible for a rear-end accident, and every driver a responsibility to pay attention while they’re at the wheel.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of a rear-end collision, please contact The Barnes Firm today.
