When one vehicle gets “rear-ended” (i.e. gets hit from behind) by another vehicle, there are a variety of accident injuries that can occur. One of the common injuries that can result is that the driver and other vehicle occupants of the front vehicle can get “whiplash.” Whiplash is further discussed on the “Whiplash” page.
There has been a vehicle accident lawsuit that alleges a April 2016 accident in Belleville resulted in various accident injuries.
The accident involved one vehicle allegedly “rear-ending” another vehicle.
An excerpt from the January 30, 2017 Madison Record article titled “Man alleges injuries from rear-end collision“, with regard to the alleged injuries suffered by the plaintiff and claims of negligence with regard to the accident:
As a result, he claims he sustained severe and permanent injuries resulting in great pain, mental anguish, loss of income and medical expenses.
Kammler alleges Combs failed to yield right of way, failed to maintain careful lookout and failed to reduce speed to avoid collision.
