Rear End Collisions / Crash Resulting in Injury | Kansas City Attorney


When you are rear ended or involved in a crash resulting in injury, it is often because another motorist is distracted or not paying attention.  Texting, talking on a cell phone, inserting a CD or switching the radio station, even engaging with passengers in a conversation can take a driver's attention away from the road and vehicles in the surrounding area.  When someone hits you from behind, it is almost always the fault of the motorist in the back.  We work aggressively to collect the damages you deserve for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs related to your injuries.

Causes of Rear End Collisions in Kansas City Missouri


Other than a motorist being distracted, there are other common causes of rear end crashes including:

  • Tailgating
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Reckless or drunk driving
  • Speeding

Nearly everyone knows that motorists who are struck from behind often claim "whiplash," and while this may seem a joke this is in reality a very common injury.  When a vehicle is stopped and another vehicle crashes into that vehicle from behind, the slamming forward action of the head and neck can result in serious injuries.  Other common injuries include:

  • Broken bones in the hands, feet, spine, skull, or rib cage
  • TBI (Traumatic brain injury)
  • Spine or brain injury resulting in paralysis
  • Facial scarring or disfigurement

Any crash resulting in injury should be brought to the attention of a qualified KC injury attorney right away so your case can be reviewed and a legal strategy devised.
