Whiplash is the most likely injury that you can suffer in a car accident. During a rear-end car accident, for example, your neck and head can be suddenly thrown backward and forward like a whip. When your neck and head are pushed beyond their normal range of movement, whiplash causes tissue damage as well as neck or back pain. If you suffer whiplash in an automobile accident that you didn’t cause, you may be entitled to money for your damages through an insurance claim, and a car accident attorney can help.
There are a variety of whiplash symptoms, and we recommend that you seek medical treatment if you feel any of these symptoms after an auto accident:
- Neck and upper back pain
- Decreased range of movement
- Feeling of “pins and needles”
- Ringing in the ears
- Concentration and memory disorders
- Blurred vision
A lot of symptoms go away and heal over time. Sometimes your symptoms won’t heal. When this leads to chronic pain and even spinal cord injuries, and whiplash can really affect your life. If you find yourself in this situation, you should hire an experienced car accident attorney in San Diego right away.
