Rear-end crashes are extremely common. They account for around 29% of all traffic accidents across the country. These wrecks are often caused by inattentive drivers that ram into a car in front of them, with 85% of rear-end crashes involving stopped vehicles.
Rear-end accidents are likely to cause whiplash and spinal cord injuries due to the nature of the collision. The victim’s neck and head will be quickly whipped around, resulting in intense pain and suffering. In some cases, victims are able to contact a Baton Rouge whiplash attorney in order to recover lost compensation.
