Over the past several years, there have been several studies done regarding the safety of athletes during contact sports, especially football.

After a car accident, you may not know the full extent of your injuries until hours days or even weeks after the accident. For example, if you bruised your ribs or strained a muscle in your back due to the impact, the pain may increase as time goes on, along with the general effects on your health and ability to take care of day-to-day tasks. This can also happen with whiplash.
You were traveling on the highway when it happened. The semitruck in front of you began to brake quickly. It was raining, so you braked but slid. You tried to move over a lane to avoid a crash. You were successful, but the semi lost control and jackknifed into your vehicle.
