Collisions of vehicles that occur in cities involve relatively low speeds. Even though the speed of a collision is not high passengers are exposed to a risk of neck spine damage when a rear-end accident takes place. These injures are referred to as Whiplash injuries which are difficult to verify when it is necessary to resolve a rear-end collision damage claim. This study presents procedures of SDC method to be used for verification of circumstances that are reported to have caused such injuries. An analysis was carried out based on a case study of a collision of two passenger cars of different categories and the results can be used by theoreticians and practitioners who are involved in research on this subject.
