This case involves a car carrier trailer that caused a highway accident. The driver of the car carrier trailer had failed to properly secure a compact car, which was located in the outermost position of the trailer. As a result, the compact car slid out of the trailer and onto the highway. The driver of the car behind the trailer applied the brakes to avoid colliding with the compact car. Although he avoided collision with the compact car, he was rear-ended and sustained significant whiplash injuries. An expert in injury biomechanics was sought to discuss the long term effects of whiplash on the body.
