When most people think of injuries related to a motor vehicle accident, they think of significant or visible injuries, such as a cut or a broken bone. However, the reality is that there are a number of injuries you can experience during an accident, many of which can easily be overlooked. One of the most commonly overlooked injuries is whiplash. If you or a loved one has recently been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with this injury.
What is Whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury that occurs when force causes your head to jolt in one direction and your body to jolt in another. As a result of this quick movement, the ligaments and nerves in your neck can suffer injury.
While this injury is most common for accident victims who have been rear-ended, it can occur in any accident. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to prevent this injury; however, wearing a seat-belt can significantly reduce the severity of whiplash.
Just how severe your case of whiplash is will have a large effect on what type of symptoms you experience. For more mild cases of whiplash, stiffness and pain in the neck and shoulder, visual disturbances, dizziness and frequent headaches are common. In more severe cases, anger, sleep disturbances, stress and anxiety are just some of the symptoms you might experience.
It's important to note that for some people, the onset of symptoms is not immediate. While some people experience symptoms immediately after their accident, some people don't experience symptoms for some time. Whenever you start to experience symptoms, make certain you seek medical treatment right away. No matter how long after your accident it is.
If you have been diagnosed with whiplash or believe you suffer from this condition, it's a good idea to reach out to an accident lawyer. Whiplash has the potential to cause long-term complications without the right type of treatment, including long-term chronic pain and spinal degeneration.
An attorney will ensure that you are fairly compensated so that you can get access to the treatment you both need and deserve. If you are suffering from whiplash, you don't have to suffer alone. Reach out to an attorney who will fight hard on your behalf.
Your health is your most important attribute. Make certain that you are keeping your treatment and recovery a priority.Share
