The causes of whiplash

Pennsylvania drivers and passengers who have been involved in rear-end collisions are likely to have experienced whiplash, a common injury suffered in these types of crashes. The injury occurs when the neck of an occupant in a stopped car quickly snaps backward and then forward when the stopped car is impacted from the rear by a moving vehicle. Whiplash can also occur when a slower vehicle is struck from behind by a faster one.
