There are three collisions involved in a whiplash injury.

First the impact of you body hitting the interior of the vehicle

Second, the inside of your brain continue to move forward and impacts the interior of the skull

Third, a reflexive response results in the brain being whiplash back to the opposite side of the skull colliding with the interior.

The reason a whiplash injury can result in significant injury is there is no guarding. The impact of a whiplash injury catches the victim off guard and therefore the body’s protective muscle guarding are not activated leaving the tissue highly vulnerable to injury.
