Whiplash Injury in Utah County
What Makes Some Car Accident Injuries Worse?
If you've been in a car crash in Orem Utah, here are some things that are known to make your injuries worse.
1. improper use of head restraints. These should be equal to the height of your head anything lower will lead to more injury.
2. Your position in the car. The driver is the most injured, followed by front seat passengers and then back seat passengers.
3. Your head position at impact. Having your head rotated, looking to one direction or the other leads more injury than if you're looking straight ahead.
4. Your use of seatbelts. Seat belts save lives and you absolutely should be wearing one, but if you're involved in a low-speed collision, the seat belt is going to make your injuries worse.
