Rear end shunts are some of the most common types of accident that occur on our roads everyday. With the increasing volume of traffic on the roads and the congested road networks around our towns and cities, many drivers suffer these types of collision whilst commuting to work. If you, or some one you know, have been injured in a car crash in Wishaw, then you may have a case to claim compensation. Thankfully, here the leading law firm, Accident Advice Helpline, we are always on hand to offer no-obligation advice about your legal rights to claim personal injury compensation in situations such as these.
What is a rear end shunt?
A rear end shunt may be defined as occurring when one vehicle fails to stop in time and runs into the back of the vehicle in front, causing it to shunt forwards. Sometimes, this type of accident can cause multiple shunts of vehicles, particularly on motorways and busy carriageways, where traffic may be queuing to exit the road or due to heavy congestion ahead.
What injuries may be caused by a rear end shunt?
Obviously the speed and type of vehicle that causes the rear end shunt plays a large factor in the impact and degree of damage that can be sustained, both to the vehicle and to its passengers.
Injuries may include:
- bleeding and lacerations
- soft tissue injury
- neck injury
- broken, fractured or dislocated bones such as limbs, pelvis, collar bone and shoulder
- back injury
- spinal injury
- head injury
- fatal injury
