Rear-End Accidents in New York
A law firm that knows how to win
Rear-end accidents are the most common types of auto accidents to happen in the Bronx and throughout New York. Since they usually occur at low speeds, they're brushed off as minor. That's a mistake. Rear-end accidents should be taken as seriously as any other type of accident. Injuries to the neck and head are common, and even low-impact rear-end accidents can cause whiplash. The injuries may not seem immediately obvious, but symptoms could appear days - and even weeks - after the accident. Failing to seek prompt medical attention could lead to further complications, some of which could be permanent.
Our law firm has a proven track record of maximizing compensation for auto accident victims. Speak with an experienced auto accident attorney at Giampa Law today.
Injuries sustained in a rear-end accident might include:
- Whiplash: This is the most common injury sustained in a rear-end accident. The crash victim's head rapidly jerks forward and backward, causing damage to the neck and spine. If untreated, the effects of whiplash can be permanent.
- Concussion/Head Injury: Concussions and head injuries can also occur in a rear-end accident.
- Broken bones: In high-impact rear-end accidents, the crash victim could suffer bone damage around the collarbone, ribs, and torso.
- Paralysis: In extreme cases, high-impact rear-end collisions can result in paralysis.
