Neck Pain

The forces involved in a car accident are tremendous. However, when someone is involved in a car accident, they do not always immediately realize the full extent of their injuries. Often, an accident victim will see blood or broken skin, and their brain will tell them that is the source of their pain. However, most car accident injuries do not appear right after the accident, especially those involving the lower back and neck.

The unfortunate truth is that airbags can only be a benefit to the occupants of a vehicle if they deploy – and if they do so in a timely manner. Airbags can fail to deploy for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, there’s a manufacturer defect to blame. Continue Reading Who is Responsible If Your Car’s Airbag Fails to Deploy?
