In the split second during the impact, lives are changed forever. Unfortunately, the human body is not designed to absorb the level of force even in minor fender benders. The real world force during a car accident is substantial. First of all, imagine tying a long rope around you chest and to a tree. Then, imagine running as hard and fast as you can until the rope stops you. That is the equivalent of a 12 MPH accident; do you think your neck and back are going to hurt?
You bet they are! Don’t minimize your injuries based on the damage to the car. Whiplash can not be healed by pain pills. Rest is not going to restore your spinal curves. How will you will not know if any serious hidden damage was done unless you get an immediate examination.
