I'm glad you have no spinal injury but be aware that sometimes you may get a lot of pain down the road.

I had the same problem with someone ramming me in the back while I was stationary waiting to turn left - this was in the US where they drive on the wrong side of the road. I felt "ok", had no broken bones, so didn't take time off work or anything despite having slight headaches now and then and a bit of an aching back and neck for a while. When I sued for personal injury (the car repairs were taken care of with no issues) a bit later as my whiplash symptoms became steadily worse I lost out because I didn't run around with a neck brace a screaming. I had a weird jury who decided that the guy I was suing was completely at fault and assigned $0 in damages because I didn't miss any work! The foreman of the jury was a religious nut who believed that any pain and suffering we receive is "God's Judgement" and we must obviously deserve it! He apparently dominated the jury (also largely made up of religious nuts - this was Tulsa, OK after all) and they all went along with him. My lawyer was totally stunned (as was I) and even the judge seemed surprised. Because of the type of action (not more than $10,000) there was no appeal. My lawyer 100% expected us to be awarded the maximum $10,000 - so he got nothing either!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
