Although whiplash is considered one of the more “minor” injuries that can result from a car accident, it can result in devastating damages. Victims of whiplash injuries often face exorbitant medical bills, persistent physical pain and emotional anguish, and loss of ability to perform certain tasks, among other potentially life-halting consequences.

What Is Whiplash and What Are Its Effects?

Whiplash occurs when a violent force causes an individual to suffer hyperextension (head jerked forward) or hyperflexion (head jerked backwards). The sudden movement may result in a cervical strain or sprain, or soft tissue injuries such as herniated disc, bulging disc, or damage to muscles and ligaments. Car accidents, especially rear end collisions, are notorious for causing whiplash.

The symptoms of whiplash may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty turning neck
  • Radiating neck pain
  • Tingling
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • And more

Diagnosing whiplash or other soft tissue damage cases can sometimes be very challenging. The initial X-Ray may produce negative or normal results and symptoms may not make themselves apparent until several days have passed. If not treated in a timely fashion, symptoms may worsen and develop into serious debilitations.

Whatever the case, if you have been involved in a car accident and are experiencing neck pain, get a medical evaluation. If your first checkup is unsatisfactory, don’t hesitate to seek out a second opinion. Your first priority is your health.

Winning Your Whiplash Claim

Our resourceful injury lawyers can help you establish a strong foundation of evidence for your claim by:

  • Analyzing police and medical reports
  • Consulting with medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, and other relevant experts
