Imagine you are driving home from work or heading out to the grocery in your car. It seems like a typical, routine trip when you stop at an intersection and wait for the light to turn green. Suddenly, you see a flash in your rear-view mirror and before you realize what is happening, you are rear-ended and your body is violently thrown forward and then slammed back.
You may be able to get out of your car, assess the damage and exchange insurance information with the other driver. You may go back home, glad to be safe but are still understandably shaken after the crash. But what many people may not realize is that there could still be serious health concerns that they may need to worry about, including whiplash.
