PROVIDENCE, R.I., Feb. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A Dussault and Zatir client was a front-seat passenger in a vehicle that was stopped at a traffic light in New Bedford, Massachusetts, when another vehicle rear-ended the client's automobile. The impact of the accident caused both property damages and bodily injuries. The client sustained soft-tissue injuries to the cervical and lumbar spines. The client was treated with a local chiropractor for a three (3) month period. Upon discharge, the client had achieved a full recovery with no residual problems.
