HOW WHIPLASH INJURIES OCCUR
Whiplash injuries can happen in a variety of California car accidents, but commonly occur in a rear-end collision. The injury occurs due to the force of your head pitching forward and backward at the time of impact. In a whiplash injury, the vertebrae of the neck and the muscles and ligaments that support them are injured.
The insurance company may try to downplay whiplash as a minor injury, but studies have found that whiplash injury victims in many cases cope with pain that lasts a lifetime. Many victims also must limit their activities for the rest of their lives.
