What Is Whiplash?

Everybody knows the cliché about car accidents and whiplash, with the victim wearing a neck brace as a visual statement about their pain and suffering. Neck injuries are the most common injury sustained in a traffic accident and can vary greatly in severity. Whiplash injuries can range from mild stiffness that lasts for days to catastrophic injuries that cause permanent paralysis from the neck down. Most whiplash injuries are not very severe, but it’s important to speak to an experienced Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island and Brooklyn personal injury attorney to have the best understanding of the value of your case.

What Causes Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury to the cervical spine that is usually caused by rear end car accidents. When a driver or passenger in a vehicle is hit by another vehicle in the rear, they can be propelled back and forth very forcibly in a manner similar to the cracking of a whip. Whiplash can also be caused by some falls, sports accidents and other types of trauma.  The strength of the impact will usually determine how severe the injury is. It’s important to speak to a Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and Bronx car accident attorney to discuss the facts of your case.

What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash

The rare and catastrophic types of whiplash will require immediate medical attention, surgery and other interventions.  These are the symptoms of the milder and more common types of whiplash:

  • Stiffness
  • Pain
  • Headaches
  • Tenderness
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

It’s important to seek medical treatment if you are experiencing these symptoms after an accident, so that you can be put on a course of treatment that will improve your condition. The medical reports from your treatment will also help your Bronx car accident attorney or Brooklyn personal injury attorney prove how severe your injuries are.
