Birmingham Whiplash Injury Lawyer
Anatomy of a Soft Tissue (Whiplash) Injury in Alabama
Visit any emergency room in Alabama and you will find that soft-tissue injuries (neck strain or whiplash) are the most common type of injuries reported among car crash victims.
When you are struck from behind, energy is transferred from the other driver’s vehicle to your own. Consequently, your car, your seat back, and the core of your body, are all propelled forward. Due to inertia, your head remains behind. As this happens, the lower bones in your neck are stretched (seemingly backward), beyond their normal range of motion. The resulting injuries to the cervical spine area are known as neck strain or whiplash.
