Whiplash describes neck pain that occurs as a result of an auto accident. Whiplash can also occur from almost any auto accident including motorcycles, in a car, on a go-kart, and even in a golf cart. Speed can also be a factor in whiplash and neck pain injuries. The speed that the cars were traveling at the moment of the auto accident will determine the amount of pressure that the neck will absorb, but this may not be reflected in the amount of physical damage done to the cars. In fact, even at speeds as low as 15 miles per hour may create enough pressure in the neck to cause whiplash to the passengers in the car.
