No one expects to be involved in an auto accident, but unfortunately these collisions happen every day across the state. When a person's car is rear-ended or is forced to crash into the driver in front of them, the impact of the collision may cause the person's head to suddenly jerk back and forth, sometimes multiple times. This could lead to an injury known as "whiplash." It is important for people in Miami to be aware of the symptoms of whiplash, so they can be on the lookout for them if they are in a car accident.

Such situations are not only terrifying, they can place you at immediate risk for a collision and injury.
