Whiplash Associated Disorders (WAD) have caused frustrating problems since decades for people injured in various types of accidents. Certain circumstances and misunderstandings explain this anomaly. They often become obvious (some as paradoxes) when it comes to estimation of crash severity, biomechanics, injury tolerance, diagnostic procedures, pain physiology, follow-up procedures and injury compensation. This presentation aims to describe some of them, especially with regard to the question of causality, i.e. if it is right to claim that an individual´s posttraumatic problems are caused by a traumatic event or not.
