As any Oklahoman knows, the weather in our state can be scarily unpredictable. These last few weeks of winter have been no exception. Snow, freezing weather, and icy roads have all contributed to a dangerous driving environment. The risks of these conditions should not be ignored.
Rear-end collisions are common in winter weather. The snow can hinder a driver’s view of the road, high winds may influence wheel control, and icy roads produce limited traction for a vehicle’s brakes. Because of this, a car may not be able to slow down in time to avoid a wreck. Unfortunately, this happens often in the winter season. And, without a doubt, the resulting injuries are imminent.
Any kind of wreck—from a fender bender accident to a serious head-on collision—can cause unforeseen injuries to the body. Rear-end collisions, especially, have the possible effect of whiplash. Whiplash, a condition caused by the sudden jerking of the neck, is much more serious than you might imagine. In a car accident, the whiplash resulting from a rear-end collision may instigate a tearing of the muscles connected to the neck. This can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, dizziness, and more.
