    Car accident claims in Reading


    Hit from behind? Put your car accident claims in Reading firmly at the front of your mind!

    Many road traffic accidents occur through vehicles travelling too close together and failing to allow an adequate and safe stopping distance between themselves and the traffic in front.  These types of accidents are known as rear-end shunts as the vehicle behind can literally shunt the preceding vehicle forwards.  This type of collision can force the vehicle in front forwards, hitting other vehicles or street furniture, causing serious damage and injury to pedestrians, other drivers and their passengers. That being so, if you were injured in an accident of this kind, that was not your fault, you might be eligible to make car accident claims in Reading.

    Injuries caused by rear-end shunts

    Rear-end shunts can cause many types of injuries to drivers and their passengers.  A common injury is whiplash which affects the neck, head and shoulders of the injured person. This is usually caused in road traffic accidents when a vehicle runs into the rear of the one in front, shunting it forwards. This jerking and jolting movement can cause the delicate ligaments and soft tissues of the neck to become over stretched and torn.

    Facial or head injuries. These are caused by hitting the windscreen at force or by the impact of the collision to passengers in the vehicle.

    Internal injuries. These can be caused if the vehicle is shunted into a stationary object such as a tree or bridge which can cause penetrative injuries to the body.

    Pelvic injuries. These can be caused by crush related injuries to the pelvis which can become life threatening and cause loss of blood.
