All too often, a driver gets distracted by the radio or cell phone, or makes a sudden lane change and fails to stop before hitting the car in front of him or her. Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accidents and can cause serious damage, not only to cars, but also to people.
Cincinnati drivers are especially at risk during rush-hour traffic on local highways and main roads. Road construction areas also are common areas for car accidents because of a distracted driver failing to slow down to the adjusted traffic flow.
Injuries from rear-end collisions can range from minor to severe and require various levels of treatment and rehabilitation. Injuries include but are not limited to:
- Lower, Middle and Upper Back
- Broken Bones
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries caused by rear-end car accidents. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most subjective injuries to diagnose and measure. False representation of injuries has led to a skewed view of its severity. Insurance companies are reluctant to pay for this type of injury and recouping lost wages is even more difficult. Delayed pain also leads to difficulty in diagnosing whiplash and linking it back to a car accident.
