One of the most common types of accidents on the road today is the rear-end accident. It happens when the car in front has a sudden deceleration and the car behind does not have the time to stop before it slams into the back bumper of the lead car.
The passengers in the vehicle in the front, in most instances, sustain worse injuries than the car that did the slamming. In addition, the car that did the slamming is almost always considered at fault. Because vehicles today have bumpers that are designed to take a beating, the vehicle that has been struck in the rear may not show much damage. However, rear-end collisions can cause the passengers severe injuries that include, but are not limited to:
· Facial injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
· Back injuries
· Head injuries
If you are involved in a rear-end accident, it is important that you contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate your case to determine if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
