Legal Considerations for Whiplash Injury Victims

Whiplash is the common name associated with neck sprains and strains caused by a sudden impact causing the head to abruptly jerk forwards, backwards, or sideways. The violent force of this snapping motion causes the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to stretch and tear. It can occur any time the neck is hyperextended or hyperflexed. However, motor vehicle accidents such as rear-end collisions remain the most common cause of whiplash injuries.

Whiplash Injury

Understanding the Lingering Effects of Whiplash

Often, whiplash injuries manifest as soft tissue damage that may seem benign at first but can have long-lasting consequences if not properly addressed. The symptoms can range from headaches and jaw pain to more serious issues such as tinnitus and vision problems. Because these injuries may not immediately appear severe, victims may underestimate their impact. However, understanding the full scope of whiplash injury is essential for appropriate medical treatment and legal action.

Often, whiplash injuries result in soft tissue damage which may heal over time with proper treatment. Other symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Headaches & Dizziness
  • Tinnitus
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Jaw Pain
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Vision problems

Our Personal Approach

Victims often dismiss the soreness and stiffness as the result of sleeping in an uncomfortable position and fail to seek treatment. They often believe the pain will dissipate on its own. This can lead to more serious problems, including depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance.

At Etehad Law, we emphasize the importance of immediate and comprehensive medical evaluations. Our expert attorneys are committed to ensuring you get the proper care and legal advice you need, assisting you in gathering evidence, navigating insurance claims, and pursuing litigation if necessary to secure the compensation you rightly deserve.
