According to research, many rear impact car accidents that cause whiplash occur at speeds below 12 mph. In low speed rear impact crashes.
Whiplash is a term used to describe neck pain following an injury to the soft tissues of your neck, specifically ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It is caused by a sudden extension of your neck that causes movement beyond the neck’s normal range of motion.
