Typically a rear end collision may not immediately result in a debilitating or catastrophic injury as head-on collisions do. The injuries can manifest later, sometime after the accident. This is due to the fact that rear end collisions frequently occur at lower speeds than head on collisions or being T-Boned at an intersection. Even at a lesser speed a rear end crash can cause serious and severe injuries in the future. These injuries should not be ignored as they may hinder your ability to work, live & function normally on a daily basis. This is where the skill and expertise of an experienced Maryland Auto Accident Lawyer can be very beneficial in helping to get you the appropriate compensation and benefits you are entitled.

Injuries Commonly Associated with Rear End Collision Accidents
Numerous types of injuries can be sustained in an auto accident. The type and severity of the injury is largely related to the type and angle of accident as well as mechanical factors like speed at impact. Some of these injuries include head, brain & neck injuries. Spinal Cord injuries, which include disc herniation, are also common in rear end accidents. Soft tissue injuries such as contusions, discoloration & bruising of the skin are common in rear end collisions. Soft tissue injuries, while often minor can cause the victim extreme discomfort. Joint, ligament & connective tissue injuries are also common as a result of a rear end collision. Examples would be tearing of the ACL in the knee or rotator cuff in the shoulder. Also, musculoskeletal injuries such as whiplash, sprains and strains are very common in auto accidents regardless of the type of accident or speed at which accident occurred.
