Rear-End Car Accident Attorneys in Chicago

The injuries a person suffers from a motor vehicle accident are directly related to the type of accident involved and the force involved in the accident. Rear-end accidents cause several types of injuries, with whiplash being the most common. Whiplash is a "soft tissue" injury caused when the head and neck are suddenly snapped backward. While it's often treated as a joke on TV here in Chicago, if you have suffered a serious whiplash injury, you know how painful and debilitating it can be.

Helping Victims of Whiplash Spine Injuries Following Rear-End Collisions

Whiplash is a cervical spine injury. It can occur in auto collisions as low as 10-12 miles per hour; when speed is involved, this form of neck and brain injury can be extremely serious.

Whiplash may not show up immediately. Often people walk away from the accident thinking they are fine, only to discover the next day that they have intense neck pain and a headache. That pain can continue and worsen, turning into shoulder and arm pain, mid- and lower-back pain, and jaw pain. Because the spinal cord is involved, a broad range of symptoms can appear over time, including fatigue, visual problems, ringing in the ears, fatigue and dizziness.

A victim of a rear-end collision may have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), leaving memory problems, mood swings, and behavioral or cognitive difficulties.

Rear-End Accidents Involving Trucks and Tractor Trailers

Rear-end accidents involving semis and tractor trailers often result in fatalities for people in the car in front. Called an "override" accident, the combination of speed and weight crushes the occupants in the forward vehicle.

In these tragic cases, the families of the victims have ever right to demand a thorough investigation of the cause of the crash. Truck accidents require a different type of investigation because of the extensive set of regulations that govern trucks on our roadways. We're prepared to conduct that investigation. We work with experts in accident reconstruction when that will help to identify the cause.
