MINNEAPOLIS MN PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS-WHIPLASH INJURIES

Whiplash injuries commonly occur in car accidents.  They occur most frequently when the occupant of a car is struck from behind in a “rear-ender” collision.

In a “rear-ender” collision, the human torso is violently pushed forward by the seat.  But not the head.  The head is not pushed by the seat.  The head snaps backward.  It then rebounds forward in a “whiplash” motion.

The result is that the cervical spine (neck) is subjected to stretching forces to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and intervertebral discs.  Often these forces stretch these tissues far beyond their natural ability to withstand.  The result is a sprain/strain injury that can be very painful and very disabling.
