    Subject of being subjected

    What is the subject of being subjected? This is from a driver guide.

    Whiplash is an injury to the neck, head and or shoulders after being subjected to a snapping motion.

    I don't think it is Whiplash and what is the rule of omitting subject here?

    Thank you

    Re: Subject of being subjected

    What do you mean by "I don't think it's whiplash"?

    Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents and is caused, as explained, by a snapping motion to the head and neck. The subject(s) of the snapping motion are the neck, head and shoulders.

    The neck, head and shoulders are subjected to a snapping motion and this can result in whiplash.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
