Rear-end collisions are among the most common of all motor vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, they are also frequently accompanied by one of the most common types of personal injuries: whiplash. As explained by the Mayo Clinic, whiplash is also sometimes called a ‘neck strain’ or a ‘neck sprain. It is a notoriously painful injury that can be difficult to diagnose.

Whiplash happens when a head is whipped back and forth. The violent force of a collision—even a relatively low-speed collision—can put a serious amount of strain on the sensitive soft tissues that make up the neck. The effects of whiplash are significant. The injury can cause damage to:
It is important to realize that pain is not always immediate and these injuries can be challenging to show demonstrable proof; insurance companies are well aware of this and do everything they can to limit or even deny payouts. Make sure to take action to protect your rights. Among other things, be sure to seek immediate medical attention and report an accident as soon as possible.
When the pain does finally arrive, it often causes weakness, numbness, dizziness or tingling sensations throughout other parts of the body. Extensive treatment may be necessary, including chiropractic and therapeutic massage and even injections and surgery. Often, whiplash can seem minor at first but lead to severe debilitating injuries due to disc injuries and spinal injuries. These injuries may require epidural injections, nerve root block injections, rhizotomy injections (which involve a burning of the nerve to relieve the pain), and can even require removal of the discs or vertebrae (discectomy) or a fusion of the discs, in order to relieve the severe pain.
If you, or someone close to you, have been injured in a car accident and believe you may have suffered whiplash trauma, it is important to understand the extent of your injury and that you see a doctor right away. Because of the onset, deliberate and decisive action is critical in protecting your rights and interests. Our legal firm is here for you. If a whiplash injury results in numbness, tingling or other symptoms in your arms, hands, or fingers, you could have a disc injury or spinal injury. Headaches are another possible symptom of whiplash. The violent force of a collision may cause both neck strain and a concussion. All head injuries should be evaluated immediately—when the brain is damaged the after-effects of the accident are especially severe.
