Few things are more frightening than knowing an accident is about to happen but being completely incapable of doing anything to stop it. That is the feeling of terror many victims feel before they are in a rear-end collision.
Perhaps you were waiting at a red light and saw a car quickly approaching behind you before feeling the jolt as it slammed into your car. Maybe you were waiting to turn left through oncoming traffic, and the car behind was not paying attention. As you checked your mirrors, you may have noticed the car behind you didn't seem to be slowing down soon enough to stop, and shortly thereafter, you feel the force from the collision.

Injuries From Rear-end Accidents
Many people who are hit in a rear-end accident suffer a variety of injuries, including:
- Knee injuries from hitting the dashboard
- Head injuries
- Herniated discs
Anytime you suffer a personal injury in an accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Some injuries may not seem severe initially because it takes a few days or weeks for the injury to develop. Even if you think you can "tough it out" after you've been injured, it is important to go to a medical professional who can fully examine you and document whatever problems you might be experiencing. The earlier you see a doctor, the quicker you'll be properly diagnosed and on the road to recovery. Also, an insurance company will give more weight to an injury that is properly documented right after an accident than one which first gets treated days later.
