A common neck injury, especially from a rear end car accident, is a herniated disc injury. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and cause disability from work and recreational activities. Neck injuries from rear end car accident can be serious as many of times whiplash and trauma are two very large elements in these types of accidents.
Michigan law provides a special rule for dealing with rear end accidents. This law makes it difficult for drivers who have rear-ended a vehicle to rebut the presumption of negligence that is created when they rear end another car. In fact, MCL 257.402 provides a presumption that the person who hit the rear end of another car is at fault for the accident and guilty of negligence. Therefore, any individual injured in a Michigan rear end car accident, whether it be the driver or passenger, usually has a good case.
