Common Injuries Suffered in Rear-End Accidents
Rear-end collisions can vary greatly in severity depending on a number of factors. For example, if you were in bumper-to-bumper traffic, getting rear-ended by another driver may be frustrating, but not very damaging. On the other hand, getting rear-ended while zipping down the highway at 65 mph or cruising down the street at 40 mph can result in much more serious injuries and damages.
Rear-end accidents commonly cause injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Facial scarring
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
What Types of Compensation Could I Recover?
This can depend on the specific type of damages involved in your accident. If you had to go to the hospital, take time off of work, or even get a special medical brace to help you recover, all of these expenses may be included in the compensation you obtain. Additionally, you may be able to recover compensation for intangible things, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental trauma.
Even though car accidents may seem straightforward, it is important that you work with a law firm who understands the ins and outs of Pennsylvania auto law. When you call Metzger Wickersham, you can be confident knowing we are members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum® and have been recognized for our legal skill.
Is There a Way to Prove I was Rear Ended?
Yes, if you were struck enough to be injured, damage to your vehicle will be very telling in determining what type of collision you were in. It will be near impossible for the other driver to claim a different type of accident occurred. Furthermore, if there are signs like skid marks or there were any witnesses around at the time of the accident, errors on the driver’s part will be evident. Responsibility for your injuries almost always falls on the rear driver.
However, it is very important not to give the other insurance company information about the accident, because there are ways it can be twisted and affect your settlement.
