A common type of neck injury sustained in various types of accidents is whiplash. Whiplash is a non-medical term that is typically used to describe a plethora of injuries to the neck area. Whiplash injuries are caused by or related to a sudden stretching, distortion and extension of the neck and its surrounding structures. Due to the violent nature of whiplash it can be a very painful injury and can have lasting health and medical issues. Speaking with an experienced Greenville personal injury attorney is a wise move.

Accidents Causing Whiplash
The most commonly seen type of accident resulting in whiplash is an auto accident, in particular a rear end collision. This is primarily related to the mechanics and inertia exerted upon impact.
Other, less common types of accidents that can induce whiplash are sports injuries such as skiing accidents, slips and falls, workers’ compensation accidents, being assaulted and amusement park ride accidents. Any movement or accident that strains the neck with sufficient force from behind can result in whiplash.
