Typically the largest hurdle that an injured person in a Missouri rear end collision accident is the nature of the injuries sustained in this type of car accident. Often the injuries can be hard to see or document because they might not be readily visible or show up on x-rays. Often the insurance company will fight these kinds of injuries The insurance company will take the position that if the vehicle itself isn’t seriously damaged, the people in the vehicle cannot be hurt.
Rear end collisions often cause soft tissue injuries. That is, there are no broken bones. Whiplash is a very common rear end collision injury. Whiplash occurs when the force of the impact of the rear end collision causes the head to snap forward and then quickly back from the accident impact. Rear end car accidents can also cause closed head injury. A closed head injury can be very severe and cause permanent disability.
