One of the most common car accident related injuries we help people secure compensation for is whiplash. This is probably because whiplash is one of the most common injures sustained after a car crash.
Whiplash is basically an injury to the neck and head area, which most commonly occurs when a vehicle is rammed behind, causing the neck and head to whip unnaturally fast in one direction. When this happens, the tendons, muscles, and soft tissue of the neck become strained and damaged, resulting in a lot of pain and reduced movement in the neck area.
Symptoms of whiplash
Whiplash injuries can manifest themselves in a number of different ways, but common symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Stiffness of the neck
- Shoulder pain
- Muscle spasms
In some extreme cases, whiplash illness can become chronic and cause symptoms such as:
If you have been involved in a car accident and are experiencing any of these symptoms, we strongly recommend you visit a doctor for a proper examination. Once you have an official medical diagnosis, you may also want to contact us to discuss making a whiplash injury claim.
