No matter the severity of a crash, accident victims in Massachusetts and elsewhere could endure pain and suffering in ally types of car crashes. Even in less severe collisions, such as a rear-end crash, a driver or passenger could suffer injuries that leave them in pain and discomfort for an extended period of time.

Nonetheless, it does often mean a longer investigation period.
