I was the driver of a 2009 Honda Civic ex coupe. I was at a red light and I had came to a complete stop and I got rear ended and pushed into the vehicle in front of me very hard to the point where my insurance company even declared my vehicle a total loss. I have neck injuries and possibly soft tissue injuries from the impact of how I was hit (whiplash). I am going to therapy (chiropractor and physical therapy because I am in alot of pain every day. The air bags did not deploy/ and my husband who was the passenger got hurt too.
