Car Accidents in the U.S.
Automobile accidents are the number one cause of injuries in the United States. With more than 5 million car wrecks reported annually, over a third of them involve major injuries. While trauma can certainly involve other limbs such as arms or legs, among the most common injuries that occur in auto accidents are to the head, neck and back.
Even minor, low-impact car accidents can do serious damage. Research has shown that 85% of car accidents under 10mph do permanent damage to passengers.
For example, whiplash symptoms can generally arise within a few days after an auto accident happens. Symptoms typically involve sensations of pain and stiffness in and around the neck area, and can also include headaches, as well. While you may not see signs right away, they are certainly nothing to ignore if you do experience them.
