Whiplash often occurs in rear-end accidents, but it can happen in many types of crashes. During the force of impact, your head can be snapped forward and backward – like the cracking of a whip. Muscles, ligaments and tendons in the neck are stretched beyond their usual limits, leaving you injured.
You may experience neck pain, and possibly pain in the back or shoulders. There may also be other symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness or stiffness. Treatment for whiplash usually includes rest and pain medication. You may need to wear a neck brace or collar. Recovery may take weeks and you may need to see a doctor for follow-up appointments.
The medical expenses for treating whiplash can add up. You may also have to miss time from work, so there’s less income coming in. If the driver who hit you was negligent – for example, speeding, texting or driving recklessly – you shouldn’t have to pay for the damages you suffered.
Recovering financial compensation after a car accident can be complicated. The negligent driver who caused your whiplash injuries may not accept responsibility for the crash. The driver may deny even doing anything wrong.
Insurance companies aren’t on your side after an accident. They are always concerned about their profits and will try to pay you as little as possible. In addition, they don’t take whiplash seriously and will challenge the extent of your injuries. They may even try to blame you for causing the accident.
