That's all.
That's not true at all, it is a cornerstone of the plaintiff's trial lawyer's bar. They literally made up the term "junk science" because defendants were using biomechanical engineers to prove that you physically can't herniate 10 discs, tear both knees, tear both shoulders and get a concussion from a 3 mph hit in the rear car accident.
