Rear End Vehicle Accident Causes Back, Neck and Spinal Damage
How It Happened
Our client was the lawful operator of a vehicle which sustained a rear end impact on Route 1 in Saugus,
Massachusetts. The vehicle was struck with such force it collided into another vehicle. Immediately after the
accident, our client began experiencing intense symptoms of neck and back pain.
Injuries sustained from the accident
As a result of this accident, our client sustained injuries and pain in his neck and back, severe headaches and
difficulty sleeping. In addition, he also experienced pain in both upper shoulders, right and left medial upper
thoracic region, and frequent occipital pain in his head region bilaterally.
His injuries also included spinal misalignment and decreased edema in the paraspinal musculature. Upon discharge
from physical therapy, it was noted that his injuries had caused his muscles to heal with scar tissue, weakening
the normal tissue’s elasticity.
