Rear-end car accidents can cause severe injuries

It may have happened when you were stopped at a stop sign, a red light or simply a slow-down in traffic. In your rear-view window you see another vehicle approaching you, quickly. Before you know it, "Bam!" The vehicle has rear-ended you. Unfortunately, situations like this happen in Lexington all too often.

In a rear-end accident, the motorist who is struck from behind may be thrust forward due to the impact of the crash. This could lead the target motorist to hit something else, such as another motorist, a fence, a building or a tree. This makes rear-end collisions very dangerous, as getting hit from behind is often just the beginning.

A person who is in a vehicle that has been struck from behind can suffer serious injuries due to the quick and violent back-and-forth movements the crash causes. Knee injuries can occur if a person hits the dashboard. Neck injuries, including "whiplash," are also common in rear-end accidents. A person's midsection can strike the steering wheel, causing injury. Back injuries are also common in rear-end accidents.

Even seemingly "minor" accidents can cause significant injuries. Therefore, those who are injured in rear-end accidents may want to contact an attorney, such as those at the Law Offices of Herren & Adams, LLP, to determine what steps to take next. Our law firm is dedicated to helping victims of car accidents. Insurance companies may try to settle a claim for an amount that doesn't actually cover all of a car accident victim's damages. Therefore, before accepting any settlement, it can help to work with an attorney first. To learn more about rear-end accidents, please feel free to visit our website.
