Rear-end collisions are the most common type of two-vehicle accidents. While they don’t often involve fatalities, rear-enders can result in serious and long-lasting injuries to the occupants of both vehicles involved. In addition, there may be internal or soft-tissue injuries that are not immediately apparent, which means they can be worsened by lack of proper medical attention.
Drivers and passengers alike should be aware of the nature of injuries that can arise in a rear-end collision, so that they can be on the lookout for symptoms should an accident occur. Here are the most common types of serious harm suffered in such crashes:
Although these injuries are suffered most often by the occupants of the vehicle that is hit from behind, the occupants of the other vehicle can also be seriously hurt.
