After you have been in an accident, even if it was a minor impact collision and you were wearing a seat belt, a frustrating, lasting, and often debilitating injury frequently plagues victims. This injury is whiplash. Whiplash is an injury to the soft-tissue in your neck, including muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This injury occurs when an external force, commonly following a rear-end car accident, forces your neck to move in a range of motion that is beyond its anatomical limit. Whiplash often creates the need for long-term medical treatment and thousands in bills, long periods of missed employment, and frequent pain and suffering. Whiplash sufferers often have a difficult time maintaining enjoyable personal and working lives, sometimes requiring expensive, special equipment just to go to sleep! Most often, whiplash injuries are caused by a car accident, notably rear-end collisions, or another accident where there is likely a negligent third party. The person or party responsible for your disrupted life, expenses, and pain should be forced to pay for their negligence.

Most often, whiplash injuries result after rear-end car crashes. Usually, a stopped car or a car moving at a slow speed is rammed from behind by another vehicle traveling at a higher rate of speed. This frequently jars the occupants of the impacted vehicle, violently throwing their heads and damaging neck, back, and shoulder muscles. Most commonly, neck swelling, neck pain, tenderness in neck, back, and shoulders, difficulty moving, muscle spasms, headache, blurred vision, back pain, shoulder pain, weakness or tingling, and other soft-tissue injury results.These Symptoms Impact You And Your Family's Daily Life
The symptoms of whiplash, individually and collectively, have a profound impact on your daily personal and working life. Symptoms may appear immediately following an accident or they may go unnoticed for some time before they are apparent. Usually, whiplash sufferers take weeks, if not months or years, to recover from their injuries. During this time, medical bills and lost wages pile up and the daily pain and suffering takes its toll. The quality of life previously enjoyed by your family also declines following a whiplash injury, as you are forced to undergo frequent, expensive medical treatment, lose time and wages from work, and may have difficulty completing even simple tasks comfortably.We Deal With Large Insurance Companies Daily
