Dealing with a whiplash injury in Kentucky, Tennessee or Indiana? Call us
Each year, more than 120,000 people nationwide sustain a whiplash injury. The most common cause of a whiplash injury is a rear end accident. Whiplash injuries cause damage to soft tissue in the neck. Such injuries are linked to the force of your head pitching forward and backward at the time of impact. In particular, the injury damages the vertebrae in the neck and the muscles and ligaments supporting them.
Sometimes, people don’t realize at first that they have a whiplash injury. That’s why some people don’t seek medical treatment after an accident or attempt to recover financial compensation for their injuries.
Common symptoms of a whiplash injury include a stiff neck, headaches, dizziness, pain in the shoulders and arms as well as pain spreading from your head down your spine. Symptoms of a whiplash injury can appear within minutes or days after an accident. In either case, it’s crucial that accident victims visit a doctor as soon as possible after a car accident if they suspect they have a whiplash injury.
