The extent of your injury can be predicted by several factors.
- Patients who are struck from behind in a rear-end collision generally suffer the most injury.
- Being struck by a larger or heavier vehicle also increases your risk.
Did you know that your vehicle does not need to be visibly damaged in order for you to be injured? The truth is that the amount of damage to your vehicle has little relationship to your injuries.
- improperly positioned head restraints
- wet or icy roads that are so common during the long winter months
- having your head rotated or extended at the time of impact
- being unaware of the impending collision.
As we age, our tissues become less elastic, and our risk of injury increases. Studies show that females are more likely to be injured than males. Those who have pre-existing arthritis are more likely to develop complaints even years after an accident.
