St. Louis Neck Injury Lawyer
At speeds as low as five miles per hour, a rear-end collision can cause serious and long-term whiplash injury to the back, neck and shoulder. At higher speeds, the sudden deceleration and whipping action of the head can cause the brain to slam against the inside of the cranium, causing a serious brain injury, even when the skull does not come in contact with the windshield or any part of the car interior.
A Board Certified Trial Advocate on Your Side · AV Rated* · Super Lawyer Designation
If you were recently struck from behind in a rear-end collision in Missouri, don't assume anything about your health or injuries until you see a qualified physician for a complete physical examination. The symptoms of whiplash and deceleration brain injuries often appear many days or weeks following a rear-end car accident. If your doctor has diagnosed you with a medical condition or injury, talk to a member on the Missouri car accident injury litigation team at Bley & Evans, LC, right away.
