Rear-end collisions are a common sight in florida, according to the National Highway Safety Administration 23-30% of all automobile crashes are rear-end collisions. The most common factors include distraction, tailgating and following too close, and poor weather conditions. There are always other factors like the condition of the vehicle (bad disc brakes or simply old cars).
Seeking medical attention is extremely important for rear-end collisions because they can result in tissue damage, or “whiplash”, back & neck injuries which can cause symptoms as minor as discomfort or leave you immobile. They can also cause injuries such as broken or strained bones, concussions, muscle problems, brain injuries or even death. Did you know that you can suffer from brain injuries without actually hitting your head? Your problems may not show on the outside, but internal damage can be fatal.
