Common Injuries Caused by Defective Headrests

When the headrest is defective, the occupants of a vehicle are at high risk of catastrophic injury or even death in the event of an accident, which may result in a potential wrongful death lawsuit.

Occupants run the risk of whiplash, which is the common name for a neck sprain caused by hyperextension or flexion of the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spinal segments. The injury is referred to as whiplash because of the way the victim's neck or back is thrown rapidly forward or backward. This causes the soft tissues and muscles of the neck to tear, leading to a painful condition and long-term decreased range of movement.
