Lebanon County Rear End Accident Attorney
The Brod Law Firm's expert Lebanon County car accident attorneys litigate and settle many successful auto accident cases each year. The Lebanon County auto accident attorneys at The Brod Law Firm and victims of rear-end collisions know that rear-end collision accidents are not to be taken lightly when any injury is suffered. Though being hit in the rear accidents are the most common form of auto accident in Lebanon County and Pennsylvania, they can cause a large amount of pain and suffering. The National Safety Council reports that there are 2.5 million rear-end collisions a year, resulting in injuries for many victims nationally and in Pennsylvania. We know injury law and can help you if you have been the victim of a rear-end collision.
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. Cellphones, distracted drivers and the increasing number of young drivers on the road contribute to this collision problem. In Lebanon County, 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.
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. All of the Lebanon County area car accident 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. 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.
Victims are only entitled to compensation for injuries sustained in rear-end collisions in Pennsylvania if their car accident lawyer can prove that the defendant was negligent. Attorney Gary Brod and The Brod Law Firm has tried and settled in litigation many successful personal injury cases and can help you receive the compensation you need.

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 "connective tissue injury" and many victims have suffered from this injury in Pottstown. Our car accident attorneys are ready to aggressively litigate these cases so that you can receive the compensation you need to heal!
At The Brod Law Firm, we are advocates for victims of automobile accidents in Lebanon County. Auto accident attorneys at our firm 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 Lebanon County area car accident lawyers are well aware that the pain and suffering caused by automobile accidents do not end directly after the accident and can last ten years before an accident victim makes a full recovery.
