There's a common misconception that you can't be injured during a "minor" crash. We hear it all the time in our Salem office. The truth is that you absolutely can be hurt in a low speed crash.
Extensive research was done by scientists on the nature of rear-end crashes and they found that there was no coorelation between the speed of a crash and chance that the occupant would be injured in that crash. The video below shows just how violent a car crash can be.
Even a simple fender-bender can put tremendous strain on the ligaments of your neck, which can lead to reduced mobility and scar tissue.
