Rear End Crash Lawyer In South Carolina
Frequently a rear end collision may not immediately result in a catastrophic or debilitating injury as head-on collisions do. The injuries can manifest later, sometime after the accident. This is due to the fact that rear end collisions frequently occur at lower speeds than head on collisions or being involved in a side impact accident at an intersection. Even at a lower speed a rear end crash can cause serious and severe injuries in the future. These injuries cannot be ignored as they may impede your ability to work, live & function normally on a daily basis. This is where the expertise of an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney can be very beneficial in getting you the appropriate financial compensation. If you have been involved in an accident and sustained an injury as a result it may make sense to consult with a car accident lawyer serving the Williamsburg County, Horry County and Georgetown County areas regarding getting the compensation you deserve.
Common Injuries Associated with Rear End Collision Accidents
There are many types of injuries that can be sustained in an auto accident. The type and severity of injury is largely related to the type and angle of accident as well as mechanical factors like speed at impact. Some of these injuries are head, brain & neck injuries. Spinal Cord injuries including disc herniation. Soft tissue injuries such as contusions, discoloration & bruising of the skin. Soft tissue injuries, while often minor can cause the victim extreme discomfort. Joint, ligament & connective tissue injuries are also commonly seen as a result of a rear end car accident. Typical examples would be tearing of the ACL in the knee or rotator cuff in the shoulder. Also, musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash, sprains and strains are very common in auto accidents regardless of the type of accident or speed at which accident occurred.
