I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this – but you have been brainwashed. You have been brainwashed to believe that there is a correlation between the amount of property damage to a vehicle – a shell of plastic, fiberglass and metal alloys; and the potential injury inflicted upon a human being – made of flesh, blood, bones, and soft tissue, etc…
Don’t blame yourself – this brainwashing has been delivered through the media, press, and funded by big insurance companies for many years.
But insurance companies save incredible amounts of money, while others unnecessarily suffer, as a result of injuries sustained due to the negligence of another. Auto insurance companies have been capitalizing on this brainwashing by arguing, via their adjusters and lawyers (after planting many seeds on television, radio and print), and in the speeches of politicians (who’s campaigns are partially funded by insurance industry), that those in low-impact car accidents, especially miami car accidents, could not possibly be in the pain they purport to be in – that all people bringing these claims are liars and frauds. Especially when the word whiplash is used.
But physics tell us otherwise: The linear conservation of momentum illustrates one way low-impact car accidents can result in substantial injuries. In addition, we’ve already discussed how the linear conservation of momentum interacts with the way a person naturally sits in an automobile to deliver more energy/trauma to the neck and lower back area. But there are other, more sinister, factors involved in your brainwashing as well. By believing the lies, you are saving auto insurance companies huge amounts of money, while innocent injury victims suffer.
Part 2, to be posted tomorrow, will explain in more detail.
