One of the possible injuries caused by a car accident is whiplash. While there are times when whiplash is not readily observable or immediately felt after an accident, it may take some weeks or even months for the symptoms or pain to come out. Such injuries are usually serious.
Whiplash, an injury to the neck and head, is inflicted due to the sudden jolt during an impact, car collision or traffic accident. This can happen in both major and minor car accidents and even in mild collision because of the sudden unexpected jolt.
You should never overlook whiplash injury but should take it very seriously. Lower back pain, headache, neck pain, spasm and numbness of arms and hands may indicate that one has whiplash injury. Whiplash can be damaging to nerves, joints, ligaments, bones and muscles and may require treatment through physical therapy, drugs and on certain occasions, surgery.
In cases when you have whiplash injury due to the negligence or recklessness of other road users, you may end up having large medical expenses, loss of job or other personal issues that affect your financial situation. You should have an expert assist you with the legal matters for quick resolution and favorable remedy.
Note: Whiplash is a term personal injury attorneys avoid because of its connotation with exaggerated of fake personal injury claims. The more technical names include neck sprain or strain, myofascial injury or hyperextension or hyper flexion injury.
