Many drivers in the Greater Boston area have experienced a rear-end collision.

Make no mistake about it, rear-end collisions can cause to serious head, neck, and back injuries, which often result in high medical expenses, a long and difficult recovery, and lost employment.

Victims Cannot Often Avoid Rear-End Collisions

Unlike many other car accidents, drivers cannot often evade being rear-ended. Instead, drivers and their passengers are forced to absorb the full force of the impact, without a chance to brace or protect themselves. It is a common misconception to think of all rear-end collisions as "fender-benders." In reality, these collisions can result in very serious injuries, namely to the head, back, neck, and shoulders. This is especially true in rear-end collisions that involve disproportionately sized vehicles, where the results can be disastrous. In all, common rear-end collision injuries include:

  • Neck strain
  • Back strain
  • Concussion
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Post-traumatic headaches
  • TMJ
  • Broken bones
Rear-End Collisions Are Nearly Always Caused By Another Driver's Negligence

Nearly all rear-end collisions are caused by another motorist's negligence. Whether that person is tailgating the victims car, speeding, misjudging distance between vehicles, stopping short, driving erratically, or not leaving appropriate braking space to react to another car, rear-end collisions are nearly always caused by another driver's negligence. Pursuant to Massachusetts state law, if another driver's negligent actions are the cause of a motor vehicle accident, they are held responsible and liable for any damages, including medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, etc.

Even Low- And Moderate-Speed Impacts Can Cause Serious Injury

It is important to note that even low and moderate speed rear-end car accidents can result in serious, debilitating and long-term injuries. Many factors aside from the speed of the vehicles comes into play here, including the weight and type of the vehicles involved, the location of impact on the vehicle, the height and type of head restraint, the dynamics of the seat, the direction of the impact, and many other physical factors.
