Unfortunately it is not just adults that can be affected by whiplash after a road traffic accident. Children are vulnerable to whiplash too, and the injury occurs in exactly the same way. Whiplash in children is caused by the overextension of the neck muscles due to the motion in a rear-end collision accident.

If your child has been involved in an accident and you suspect they may have whiplash, it is crucial that you seek medical attention for them immediately. There are other symptoms of whiplash beyond neck pain, including dizziness and tiredness.

Whiplash in children

Are children at more danger of whiplash?

Numerous studies have been conducted into whiplash in children. These suggest that although children are susceptible to whiplash because of their shorter height, there are other factors that mean it is slightly less likely for children to suffer whiplash than adults.

These factors include the reality that children are naturally more flexible than adults, and hence suffer less damage in the whipping motion. There are other suggested factors - including the fact that many children are sat in the back-seats during accidents – that are thought to make a child whiplash injury less likely.

Using the correct car safety equipment for a child (for example a booster seat) may help to prevent a whiplash injury in the event of an accident.
