Common Rear End Car Accident Injuries
Any car accident can cause injuries. But, rear end car accidents are known for causing specific injuries to the back or spine. This is because a rear end accident can involve the person being hit getting violently jerked forward in the crash. Whiplash, the most common rear end car accident injury, is caused by this jerking motion. These kinds of crashes easily cause muscle strains, soft tissue tears, spine damage, and neck and brain injuries even at low speeds. Here are the most common injuries we see in rear end car accidents:
- Spine injuries
- Cuts, bruises, broken bones
- Seat belt injuries (wrist, arm, shoulder, rib damage)
- Airbag injuries (broken teeth, broken nose)
How serious these injuries depend on several factors. How hard you were hit and if you were wearing a seat belt or not. Injuries to the spine are probably the most significant we see in these accidents. These injuries can involve herniated or bulging discs that often require surgery to fix.
