Rear-end vehicle collisions commonly result in a driver to experience a whiplash injury. As the driver’s torso jolts forward, the neck lags behind and eventually whips forward. There are two types of whiplash injuries that can result from a rear-end collision:
1. Hyperextension: Vehicle strikes from behind, causing a quick backward throw of the head.
2. HyperFlexion: Torso shifts forward, whipping head forward.
