Have You Been Injured in a Rear-End Collision?
If you have been injured in a rear-end car accident in Rhode Island you may be surprised to learn that you can suffer serious injuries even in crashes that do not have substantial damage to the vehicle. Cars today are built to flex and absorb much of the force of rear-end crashes, but our bodies — especially our neck, back and shoulders — may still be seriously injured in low-speed accidents.

Established in 1926, our Pawtucket rear-end collisions law firm has a history of providing high-quality legal representation, coupled with compassion and care for our clients.

At Blais Cunningham & Crowe Chester, LLP, our Rhode Island personal injury lawyers will treat you with compassion and zealously represent you to secure the best possible outcome.
A rear-end car crash can happen in a variety of situations, including a distracted driver who fails to stop in time because he or she was talking on their cell phone or texting while driving. In other cases, a driver who is tailgating or following too close for conditions causes the accident.
Injuries that can result from a rear-end accident also vary and can include:
- Head, neck and shoulder injuries
- Spinal cord injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
- Wrist and hand injuries
- Leg fractures, knee injuries and other lower body injuries
- Soft tissue injuries to the muscles, tendons and ligaments
The severity of these injuries depends on the speed of the vehicles just before impact and the types of vehicles involved in the crash. It is important to seek medical attention immediately after a crash — even if you do not believe that you have been seriously injured. Some injuries can take several days or weeks to fully develop and waiting to seek medical attention may impact your ability to fully recover for your injuries. It is best to talk to an attorney early in the process so that you can protect your rights.
