Whiplash From Car Accidents

Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from a sudden, forceful back-and-forth motion of the head resembling the cracking of a whip. It can result from sports accidents or other physical trauma but is most commonly caused by auto collisions. A whiplash car accident can take many forms; however, it is usually a rear-end crash. Neck injuries range in severity but can lead to lifelong problems, so if you are involved in an auto accident, it always pays to get checked out by a physician. And if you believe a negligent party is responsible for the crash, it is wise to get a whiplash car accident lawyer in your corner. Morgan & Morgan may be able to help you recover medical costs, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.

  • Symptoms of Whiplash

    Whiplash symptoms are not always immediate and generally develop within 24 hours of a car crash. Sometimes they take even longer to arise. Also, you can go into shock after an auto accident, so you might not even realize you have a neck injury. This is why, again, it is so important to get checked out after a collision. Whiplash symptoms include:

    • Neck pain or stiffness
    • Loss of neck motion, or pain during movement
    • Headaches
    • Pain in upper back, shoulders, and arms
    • Numbness or tingling in arms
    • Dizziness or fatigue

    Additional signs include:

    • Tinnitus (ringing in ears)
    • Blurry vision
    • Trouble sleeping
    • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
    • Irritability
    • Depression
  • Whiplash Treatment

    Most of the time, whiplash victims will recover in a week or two, but that is not always the case. The main goals are to manage pain, restore the range of motion in your neck, and get you back to normal life. Many times, a foam collar, rest, hot or cold compresses, and over-the-counter pain medication, as well as an exercise routine, will suffice. But a doctor may have to prescribe medication or administer numbing injections so you are able to do your rehabilitation exercises. You might even have to see a physical therapist. You want to do everything in your power to get better, so take the necessary steps — and keep track of them. The costs of all of these services add up, so make note of those, too. You may be able to recover all of these expenses and more, and retaining a whiplash car accident attorney will give you the best shot at doing so. And with Morgan & Morgan, there is no upfront cost; we get paid only if we win.

  • Whiplash Complications

    Even if you heed all advice regarding your recovery, pain can continue for months or even years following a whiplash car accident. That’s especially true if you had back pain prior to the crash or had experienced whiplash before, or you’re an older person. Complications can include:

    • Severe neck pain
    • Discomfort spreading to the arms
    • Headaches
