Whiplash in Car Collisions

Farmington Hills Car Accident Attorney

The impact from a crash can send you flying forward, only to be thrust back by your seat belt and/or steering. Your head and neck snapping back and forth can cause whiplash. This injury can occur in many types of accidents, but most often whiplash is the result of a rear-end collision.

If you have been in an accident, it can take a whole day before you are aware of any serious injuries. Though severe injury from whiplash is not common, it still affects the spinal cord. If you suffer any complications from your injuries, then you deserve compensation to help you pay your medical bills and perhaps make up for any lost wages. A car accident lawyer can examine your case and determine whether you have a personal injury claim on your hands.

Whiplash Symptoms and Injury

After an accident, injuries may not be readily apparent. It can take 24 hours for you to be aware that you suffer from whiplash. Some symptoms of this include:

  • Stiff/sore neck
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Exhaustion
  • Ringing ears
  • Poor concentration

You should certainly reach a doctor if you start to feel pain move to your shoulders and arms as well. If you cannot move your head without pain, and/or your arms become numb, tingly, or feeble, you should definitely seek out a medical professional. Whiplash and attendant injuries can damage bones and nerves, sprain muscles, and tear soft tissue. You want to make sure that you deal swiftly with any conditions developed from a car accident.

It is possible that you are owed compensation for pain and suffering. If your pain is severe enough, you may require prescription pain medication, even injections or drugs that can relax your muscles. Serious injuries may further require therapy and exercises. If the injury is bad enough, it may keep you from work, especially if your career requires physical labor. Along with whiplash, you may be suffering from other types of injuries from your car accident. In any case, you deserve compensation for your medical treatment and lost wages.

Do Not Pay for Someone Else's Negligence

In a rear-end collision, it is almost impossible for the motorist behind you to evade fault. That driver may be liable because he or she could not stop in time. When another person's carelessness is responsible for your injuries, you should not be left to face the consequences on your own. With a committed Farmington Hills car accident lawyer on your side, you ought to receive the full settlement to which you are entitled. If your whiplash injury is due to some other accident, you may need a lawyer who can work to demonstrate the liability of the other party involved.
