New York City Rear-End Accident Attorneys
Making Sure Your Case Doesn’t Get Left Behind
Rear-end accidents are among the most common types of car accidents, which often happen at stopped intersections and among New York City’s traffic jams. However, the commonality of a rear-end accident doesn’t mean it is less harmful to those involved. Even at relatively slow speeds, a rear-end collision can leave people with severe injuries.

Injuries Suffered in Rear-End Accidents
Were you seriously injured in a rear-end collision, but the other driver’s insurance company doesn’t believe you? If so, know that you’re not alone. Countless drivers each year are given the runaround by opposing insurance companies that downplay their injuries as much as possible. Be sure they don’t get away with it this time by putting our attorneys on the case.
Thanks to our extensive experience focused on motor vehicle accidents, we know all too well just how serious injuries can be in a rear-end collision. Some of our clients have had life-changing injuries, even when the crash happened below highway speeds.
Injuries that rear-end accident victims suffer can include:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Head injuries
- Back injuries
- Bone fractures
- Contusions and lacerations
Is Whiplash Serious?
When a vehicle slams into the back of another vehicle, especially when the front vehicle was not moving or was moving at a much slower speed, the risk of whiplash being suffered by the people in the front vehicle is high. Whiplash occurs when the neck is forced back and forth suddenly and violently. This rapid motion tears and injures the soft tissues there, like tendons and ligaments.
Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Chronic neck pain
- Neck stiffness or immobility
- Upper backaches
- Nausea, vomiting, and dizziness
- Sensitivity to light and sound
Whiplash is in no way a “mild” injury. Its symptoms can last for years, especially if left untreated. Please see a doctor as soon as possible after being in a crash, especially if it might have caused whiplash. An early checkup can help prevent the injury from worsening.
