Car Accidents and Whiplash Injuries
One of the most common, but painful, injuries an individual can suffer after a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash refers to an injury caused by overextension of the neck, usually caused by a sudden back and forth motion of the muscles. Individuals who suffer from whiplash are often left to not only deal with extensive medical bills, but lost wages due to the inability to work. Due to this, it is often necessary to take action against the party responsible for your injury especially when caused by a negligent driver.
Suffering a whiplash injury can lead to a number of symptoms, including:
- Neck Pain
- Stiffness in neck
- Decreased range of motion
- Blurred vision
- Pain in shoulders, back, or arms
- Tingling or burning in arms
- Trouble concentrating
These are only some of the symptoms that can result from a whiplash injury. Even worse, whiplash is often caused by the reckless actions of other drivers, to no fault of the victim themselves. Although whiplash is common after accidents, the effects of this injury can be catastrophic on an individual’s life. With such severe implications of this injury, it is important to take legal action against the party responsible for these accidents, making the assistance of an experienced attorney essential.
