Common Injuries Involved In Rear-End Auto Collisions
Part of being a responsible driver is recognizing how much space you need to leave between you and the car in front of you, in case the car in front comes to an abrupt stop. That’s why in most cases, rear-end accidents are considered to be the fault of the driver in back.
Override accidents, in which a truck runs over a passenger car in front of it, and under ride accidents, in which a car slides underneath a trailer being towed by a truck, are very dangerous. Most result in catastrophic injuries and even death.
If you’ve been injured in a rear-end accident, the good news is that it probably won’t be difficult to establish fault. The bad news is that you may have suffered serious injuries, including:
- Neck injuries (including whiplash)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Back injuries
- Crushed limbs
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Fractured facial bones

Sometimes these injuries can be severe and persistent and require long-term medical treatment. It could mean that you need to miss work and can no longer pay your bills or support your family.
Insurance companies generally don’t jump at the chance to pay you what you deserve. That’s where an experienced Ohio personal injury lawyer can help.
