Suffering from a head, brain, neck or back injury?
A rear-ender frequently leads to very serious consequences to innocent drivers and their passengers. When a negligent driver fails to come to a stop, due to distraction (such as texting), speeding, reckless driving, or drunk driving, the vehicle could be thrown into oncoming traffic and not only experience the impact from behind, but subsequent impacts either from another vehicle, or an impact with a building or other stationary item. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury which is exceptionally painful, and can require many months of rehabilitation to resolve.
The spine can be involved, and sprains, strains, ligament damage and other soft tissue injuries do not heal quickly, and could restrict movement, cause ongoing severe pain, and make it impossible to function at work. More serious injuries such as closed-head injuries may not be immediately apparent, but can be fatal if not treated. Brain injuries are some of the most dangerous, as there is varied response to medical treatment, and while some may eventually recover some of all of their abilities, other victims may never be able to function in life.
In the most tragic cases, a loved one could be in a permanent vegetative state. Spinal cord injuries lead to a lifetime of challenging disabilities, such as quadriplegia or paraplegia. The entire future of the individual has been altered permanently, and the responsible party must be held accountable. Justice is served in civil court by seeking damages from the at-fault driver. In an insurance claim, every possible loss to the victim must be addressed, including medical bills, the costs of ongoing care and treatment, as well as the personal impact such as pain and suffering and the loss of quality of life.
