The most common of these injuries is whiplash. It is estimated that over a million whiplash cases occur every year due to car crashes. It can happen in an impact as low as fifteen miles an hour. What most people don’t realize is that it is the sudden jolt from the impact that causes the injury not the speed of the impact itself.
Unfortunately, this means that whiplash often isn’t reported which can lead to further injury and suffering to the patient. This can cause additional suffering including neck pain, stiffness, pain between the shoulder blades, blurred vision, fatigue, dizziness, and headaches.
