Yes, a vehicle weighs a ton and you are very small in comparison. Think of being tackled on the street by a 200lb. person and you can imagine being hurt right? Well, a car weighs way more than that and even though you are strapped in and have airbags, it is still a large mass that has slammed into you. This causes damage.
A study conducted by Charles Carroll, M.D., Paul McAtee, M.D. and Lee Riley, M.D. revealed that: “The amount of damage to the automobile bears little relation to the force applied to the cervical spine (neck) of the occupants.”
Like I mentioned earlier, the damage to a car is different to the damage to a person. Even if there is no pain immediately, the impact can lead to pain later on.
