A neck injury is common in road traffic accidents
Car accidents, particularly rear-end shunts, often cause a neck injury. The most common of these is whiplash, which is very painful and can be disabling. This is caused by the force of the shunt making the heads of the occupants of the front car to jerk suddenly, backwards, forwards or sideways, creating the perfect circumstances for a neck injury.
