The sudden impact from behind in a rear-end collision can cause severe whiplash, head, neck and even spinal cord damage. Many accident victims who were involved in a rear-end collision may feel fine at first. Days, weeks, even months could go by before the full effect and damage of their whiplash injuries start to appear.
