A rear-end collision occurs when the front bumper of a car makes contact with the rear bumper of another car. Generally this occurs because the driver of the rear vehicle was distracted or reckless. The rising popularity of cellular telephones and the increasing number of young drivers on the road contribute to this collision problem. In Broomall, Pennsylvania car accident lawyers often hear reports that the driver of the rear vehicle did not even have his or her eyes on the road directly before the collision occurred.
Pennsylvania Rear-End Collision Law
According to Pennsylvania car accident law, a driver who hits another driver from behind is usually at fault. Pennsylvania's Rules of the Road provide in section 3310, a driver should not follow too closely and leave a safe distance between the driver's car and the car head. It provides:
(a) General rule. The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of the vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway.
Simply put, a driver is supposed to leave enough distance between his car and the car in front, taking into consideration weather and traffic conditions in order to be able to stop safely and avoid a rear-end crash.
Broomall Hit From Behind Auto Accidents
Though rear-end collisions often happen at low speeds, this does not mean that passengers will only receive minor injuries. Insurance companies try to prove that low speeds do not result in serious injury, but the medical community is increasingly reporting that spinal injuries and serious neck injuries can result from low-speed collisions.The Broomall rear end collision attorneys at The Brod Law Firm have contacts with the medical community and are usually able to prove that injuries do result from even low-speed collisions as long as there is property damage to one or both cars. Since most rear bumpers on cars are designed to protect the body of the car and not the bodies of passengers, the impact from the collision can cause serious physical damage to passengers.

Injuries Commonly Sustained During Rear-End Collisions
The most common injury reported after rear-end collisions is whiplash - a hyperextension of the neck. Whiplash occurs when the body is propelled forward at the time of impact. Since the head is not touching any part of the seat, it is thrown back, causing damage to the muscles in the neck. This type of injury is called a "soft tissue injury" and many victims have suffered from this injury in Broomall. Our car accident attorneys are ready to aggressively litigate these cases so that you can receive the compensation you need to heal!

Our auto accident attorneys work tirelessly with the medical and legal community to increase awareness about the long-term effects of soft-tissue injuries. We know that whiplash victims can continue to experience symptoms even well after the accident has occurred. A study by the Clinical Neuroscience Department at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden found that victims of whiplash often report continued symptoms up to seven years after the original injury!
Though all passengers who are involved in rear-end collisions can experience whiplash symptoms, women are more likely to sustain serious whiplash injuries. A likely explanation for this trend is that women have smaller muscles in their necks. By retaining a Pennsylvania car accident lawyer from The Brod Law Firm, you will take the first step to finding the compensation you need to combat whiplash injuries.
Our Broomall rear end car accident lawyers are well aware that the pain and suffering caused by automobile accidents do not end directly after the accident. That's why we continue to support our clients even after the case is over.
