Imperial Woman Injured in Jefferson County Missouri Rear End Accident
By Ryan Bradley, Esq.
A woman from Imperial, Missouri was injured when her car was struck in a Jefferson County Missouri rear end car accident. The injured party was taken to St. Anthony?s Medical Center by Rock Township EMS. The Missouri rear end car accident occurred on December 20, 2011 at 7:10pm.
Melisa A. Zeigler of Imperial, Missouri was driving on West Outer Road Interstate 55, south of Old Antonia Road. The 18 year old driver stopped her 2008 Saturn Astra. Then, a 2003 Pontiac Bonneville crashed into the rear of her vehicle. The Pontiac was driven by Linda L. Linpert, 50, also from Imperial, Missouri. The force of the impact forced the Pontiac off the roadway and it travelled down an embankment.
Serious physical injuries often occur in Missouri rear end impact car accidents. The sudden change in velocity and direction may result in neck, including whip lash injuries. ?Whiplash? is a term that refers to a range of neck injuries caused by sudden distortions of the neck. Serious whiplash injuries cause pain, nerve damage, disc damage, and even fractures. Symptoms of minor whiplash injuries include dizziness and headaches.
Neck injuries are particularly dangerous in a Missouri rear end car accident because they may be difficult to for an accident victim to diagnose. Neck injuries are notorious for having delayed symptoms. An accident victim may feel relatively fine after the accident, only to suffer immense pain later. Accident victims are always at risk for whiplash injuries in a rear end accident, and should therefore accept any onsite medical treatment that is offered to them.
