Written for the reconstructionist, attorney, automotive engineer, or other interested professional, it examines the science of reconstructing and analyzing a low speed automobile accident. Learn how to analyze accidents that result in little or no vehicle damage, how the final position of a vehicle indicates speed much higher than the driver claims and what are potential injuries and threshold loads for injury to various parts of the body arise from low speed collisions. Dr. Watts explains basic concepts of physics, and then applies them to accident reconstruction. The text will be readily understood by any reader with a basic understanding of accident reconstruction, however, full details and equation derivations are provided for those with either higher technical education or a wish to more fully understand the issues.

The damage portion of a personal injury claim is the heart of the tort case and determines whether or not the claim is worth pursuing. The attorney must be able to determine accurately the level of damages the injured plaintiff can expect to recover for his or her injuries. The checklist format of this book provides a quick and thorough reference for an attorney to use when evaluating a client's personal injury case. The attorney can ensure that he or she has met the obligation owed to the client to identify and calculate properly those damages recoverable and make sure that the damages are pleaded properly and that the evidence necessary to prove the claim is gathered. This checklist allows the attorney to determine the appropriate basis for the damage claim and what evidence and testimony will be needed.

Die Analyse eines Verkehrsunfalls erfordert zusätzliches Wissen, das im Normalfall nicht während des Studiums vermittelt wird. Daher wird die Analyse von Verkehrsunfällen in der Regel von spezialisierten Sachverständigen vorgenommen. Das dazu nötige Wissen wurde Anfang der 80er Jahre bereits in einer früheren Auflage dieses Handbuchs veröffentlicht. Jetzt hat ein Autorenteam die lange fällige Neubearbeitung erstellt. Die Autoren sind Experten auf ihrem jeweiligen Gebiet und stellen die Arbeitsmittel in zeitgemäßer Darstellung bereit. Dabei werden computergestützte Arbeitsmethoden berücksichtigt. Es werden auch die Wünsche und Forderungen von Verkehrssicherheits- und Unfallforschern berücksichtigt, die nach einer thematisch vollständigen Arbeitsunterlage suchen. Damit steht ein zeitgemäßes, methodisch zuverlässiges und einheitliches Werk für die Analyse von Verkehrsunfallabläufen zur Verfügung.

The Second Edition also explores new theories being heralded to explain chronic whiplash, discusses Central Sensitization, and includes a new chapter in whiplash mythology.

Trauma-Biomechanik untersucht die Reaktion und Toleranz von Gewebe auf extreme mechanische Belastungen. Dabei ist das Verständnis der mechanischen Faktoren entscheidend, um Maßnahmen zur Verhinderung von Verletzungen zu entwickeln. Die Autoren beschäftigen sich intensiv mit den Verletzungsarten, die durch Verkehrs- und Sportunfälle verursacht werden. Dabei wird eine interdisziplinäre Sicht eingenommen, die u. a. Fragen der Anatomie jeder Körperregion, aber auch ingenieurwissenschaftliche Lösungen zur Verletzungsvorbeugung miteinbezieht.

It has been around since the first rear-impact automobile accident and it will continue to be a problem as long as humans have large, heavy heads perched on slender, highly mobile cervical spines. The subject is whiplash, and some of the brightest minds on the topic gathered in Banff, Alberta, Canada, for the Eighth International Symposium by the Physical Medicine Research Foundation. Editor Dr. Murray E. Allen, Chairman of the Symposium, has collected the findings in Musculoskeletal Pain Emanating From the Head and Neck: Current Concepts in Diagnosis, Management, and Cost Containment to help physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, and researchers better understand “the new whiplash,” make reliable clinical assessments, and provide more effective treatment. This thorough collection includes bump studies with human volunteers, research into safer automobile seat backs and head restraints, postmortem cervical spine examinations, reviews of the literature, and other investigations from around the world. Readers of Musculoskeletal Pain Emanating From the Head and Neck will learn specifically about: injury mechanisms, threshold for injury, and impact severity long-term outcomes of whiplash injury psychological aspects of chronic pain and disability dizziness, imbalance, and chronic incapacity intervertebral joint injuries and cervical synovial joint injuries the Neck Disability Index manipulation and mobilization therapies temporomandibular disorders/temporomandibular pain and dysfunction syndrome (TMPDS) Musculoskeletal Pain Emanating From the Head and Neck is not simply a collection of studies presenting data and findings--rather, it is a compilation of knowledge that illuminates the challenges of treating whiplash and makes some strong and straightforward recommendations for improvement. The contributors and the editor stress to the reader that in order to provide the best possible care, providers must be alert to the many secondary manifestations of whiplash, test for the perception of dysfunction, and be reassuring whenever possible. They must foster an atmosphere of confidence, encourage very early activation, and help persons maintain the momentum of their lives. Furthermore, Dr. Allen calls for caregivers to stop most (if not all) drug treatments, avoid passive failure-mode treatments, and avoid prolonged medicalization of any form of treatment. By studying the findings and following the recommendations of the international experts contributing to Musculoskeletal Pain Emanating From the Head and Neck, physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists will foster self-reliance in their patients and improve diagnosis, treatment, and cost containment of whiplash.
