The purpose of this article is to show how one may establish a cause of action for eye damages caused by whiplash trauma by presenting current medical literature which proves a cause and effect relation. Considering the vast complexity of the ocular mechanism, and its connection with the cervical spine region, a neuro-muscular-skeletal explanation of these areas will precede the medical documentation. Court decisions supporting petitions for this type of eye damage are unavailable. However, in order to show that whiplash trauma has, in the past, included some ocular disturbances, a few cases will follow the documentation in support of this thesis.
