Whiplash After a Car Accident Can Wreak Havoc on Your Life

People may joke about getting a whiplash injury in a car accident or being injured after slipping and falling on something like a banana peel. But both of these types of injuries are no laughing matter.

Whiplash is a common occurrence in a rear-end accident. There are about 50 million people injured in car accidents each year, and whiplash is a common occurrence in these accidents. If you are involved in a serious auto accident, you may not experience whiplash immediately, but you may in the future.

Whiplash is the most common of all injuries after a car accident. It is a serious injury involving the back and neck and can also cause injury to muscles and tissues. The injury is caused by a whipping or abrupt motion of the head forward and then back, usually after a rear-end collision.

Whiplash is an insidious injury that may not appear for some time. The damage caused can be permanent or temporary, and many sufferers take years to heal.

After a car accident, seek medical attention and evaluation for whiplash. Your medical record may become important if you need to bring a lawsuit to recover damages for your injuries.

Common symptoms of whiplash include the following:

  • Back injury
  • Neck injury, including stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing of the ears
  • Anxiety
  • Nervousness
  • Depression
  • Blurry vision
  • Sleep disturbance

Do not hesitate to contact a lawyer who handles car accident cases to fight for what you deserve after suffering a whiplash injury.
