How do I know if I have whiplash after a car accident?

If you or a loved one has experienced whiplash from an accident, contact Mike Agruss Law for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

Whiplash is an injury that may be considered a neck sprain or strain. It is caused by a sudden, hard back-and-forth motion of the neck and is often seen after automobile accidents due to a collision causing a person to jerk back-and-forth in their seat. This motion causes the bones, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerves in and around the spine to get damaged.

Whiplash is an injury that affects people differently in the severity of the injury, the type of injury, and the location of the injury. Therefore, the symptoms people experience and their recovery time differs for each person. Some people may feel pain and discomfort for only a few days while others can still feel “off” for several months. A case of very severe whiplash can cause symptoms that may even last a lifetime, such as a difficulty sleeping or chronic headaches.

But, it is important to keep in mind that this is a kind of injury that has symptoms that may have a delayed onset. This means you may start feeling the symptoms after a day or two, which is why seeking immediate medical attention immediately after a car accident is imperative no matter what.

Whiplash in car accident can affect the neck, shoulders, and arms. Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash include neck pain and stiffness, limited or lost range of motion in the neck, tenderness in the neck, shoulders, or arms, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, and possibly more. Due to the delayed onset, if your neck was jerked at all during the collision, you should see a doctor as soon as possible to get it treated.

If another person caused your injuries, you can file a claim against them for monetary damages.
