Causes Of Whiplash

Causes of whiplash neck injury – What are the causes of whiplash?

Whiplash injury can be caused by any number of things, but the most common cause of whiplash is minor car accidents.

This would be a situation whereby a minor collision would occur, and as a result the driver (or passengers or ALL) would sustain a neck injury as a result of the jolting motion on the neck, commonly refered to as “whiplash”.

There are also a number of other common causes of this injury these include

  • Sports such as rugby i.e during a harsh tackle the neck can sharply go backwards in whiplike motion, also common in boxing when a boxer is punched his head may jolt backwards and cause this particular form of necksprain.
  • When someone takes a fall or loses their footing it is common that they can sprain their neck which is a minor form of whiplash injury.
  • Also it is common that individuals who enjoy attending theme parks enjoying rollercoaster rides may incurr this common injury as a result of rushing forward at relatively high speeds which would make their neck whip backwards.

These above are just a few examples of situations where whiplash injuries can occur; unfortunatley this particular form of injury can be at times difficult to avoid, but if you or someone you know has been a sufferer of whiplash injury at any point in the last 6 years, there is a form that you have the option to fill in if it is your wish to speak to a legal representative about your options regarding this complaint, if you are at all interested please see the form at the top right hand side of the page.
