The physics of whiplash injuries are fascinating. And Clearwater injury attorney Matt Dolman breaks it all down, with video, in a recent blog on DolmanLaw.com.
Within the first 100 milliseconds, the vehicle seat accelerates forward, pushing the occupant?s torso with it. The rigidity of a persons body presses against the extended seat, deflecting it rearwards, and loading it to spring back.
150 milliseconds from the collision, the torso is accelerated by the seat and may start to ramp up the sear while the lower neck is pulled forward by the accelerated torso. The neck then rotates and extends rearwards, hyper-extending the neck.
In the next 25 milliseconds, the head continues moving backwards. The vehicle seat begins to spring forward and the torso goes with it. The head rotation rearward is increased and extended.
