Whiplash Attorneys

By far one of the most common injuries that people sustain in a car crash is whiplash. Many people believe that whiplash will go away after a few days or a week, but that is by no means always the case. Unfortunately, whiplash damage can be very long-lasting, and can even affect your day to day life. It can affect their jobs and family life. Whiplash can also get much worse if left untreated.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a type of neck injury that occurs when the suddenly moves backward then forward. This is extremely common in rear-end collisions. Usually, the body stays still during a car accident held in place by the seat belt. However, the head still jolts backward and forwards violently. This type of movement leads to whiplash. Whiplash can be mild all the way to severe, depending on the force involved in the impact. Whiplash leads to sprains and/or tears in tendons, ligaments, and muscles in both the neck and shoulders.

Whiplash Symptoms

Depending on the force and impact of the accident, whiplash can lead to a variety of symptoms. According to the Mayo Clinic, whiplash can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Severe & Ongoing Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Pain and/or Numbness that Spreads to the arms
  • Impaired/Blurry Vision
  • Jaw pain
  • Ringing Ears
  • Dizziness & Vomiting

If you find yourself in a car accident and are experiencing these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately.
