Even A Small Impact Can Cause Serious Harm

You may have been sitting at a stop sign. You may have been waiting to turn left. You may have been stopped in a traffic jam. You may have nearly avoided rear-ending the person in front of you only to get hit from behind on Interstate 5.

Many of the personal injury claims our attorneys file at the Law Offices of William W. Green & Associates in Anaheim involve rear-end collisions. While they are some of the most common accidents in California, they can cause serious harm.

The force of the impact alone can push drivers and passengers against the steering wheel or into the windshield. Air bags explode at moments notice to save lives, but they can still cause injuries. When more than one vehicle is involved, victims often become trapped between metal or get jolted back and forth.

Frequent injuries include:

  • Back injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Neck injuries, including whiplash
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Head or traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones

Don't Forgo The Medical Treatment You May Need

Many of these injuries are not immediately obvious, and seemingly minor symptoms can be indicators of a larger problem. Going to the doctor should always be your first step after a rear-end accident.
