Rear-End Accidents And Whiplash Cases
According to a number of studies, driver distraction is the number one cause of auto accidents in the United States. In addition to traditional avenues for distraction – eating, disciplining children, tuning the radio, cell phone usage, and putting on makeup – many newer model vehicles increase the chances of an auto accident by loading drivers’ consoles with satellite navigation systems, mp3 players, even DVD players. All too often, these distracted drivers cause rear-end collisions.

Rear-end impacts are the most common type of auto accident, making up millions of insurance claims every year (most for property damage). Most rear-end accidents are low-impact collisions, and as such don’t usually result in immediate, catastrophic personal injury. However, victims of rear-end car accidents, even those occurring at low speeds, often develop serious injuries that affect their ability to work and live normally.
Whiplash is a soft-tissue neck injury commonly associated with auto accidents – particularly rear-end accidents – that may include injury to joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots. In some cases, victims may experience memory loss, concentration impairment, irritability, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, depression, or other cognitive, somatic, or psychological impairment.
