    Have you sustained a whiplash injury?

    Whiplash is a common injury following a road traffic accident involving a collision between vehicles, often from a rear-end shunt. The impact of a collision on the driver, passengers or pedestrians can result in painful injury to the neck known as whiplash.

    How is whiplash caused?

    Whiplash is caused by the sudden and often violent movement of the neck in an awkward direction following the impact of a collision. The head may be jerked or jolted suddenly in a backwards, forwards or sideways movement, damaging the ligaments and soft tissues of the neck as the head is thrust in different directions.

    What accidents can cause whiplash to occur?

    Road traffic accidents aren’t the only type of accident to result in painful whiplash injuries. Other common causes include:

    • violent attack or assault by a heavy or solid object striking the head;
    • fall especially from a height such as a mobile elevating platform; and
    • As the result of a sporting injury in high contact sports such as boxing or rugby.

    Diagnosis and treatment of a whiplash injury

    The symptoms of whiplash often begin to develop over a 6 to 12-hour period following the accident. These can range in severity depending upon the cause of the accident and the impact involved, but can include:
