Getting Help with a Whiplash or Neck Injury

neck spine x-ray

Whiplash injuries occur when a person’s body moves forward rapidly while their head stays in place. Whiplash injuries can severely impact the neck, causing the neck to extend in a “whip-like” motion. In some cases, whiplash accidents can cause the neck to snap or jerk--resulting in serious injuries.

What Should I Do After Suffering a Whiplash Accident?

If you suffered a whiplash injury, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Neck injuries can have serious consequences that can result in long-term health problems if not treated immediately. If your doctor didn’t see a major injury at first but you start developing symptoms at a later date, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Common neck injury symptoms include but are not limited to:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Cognitive difficulties

Seek Compensation

Whiplash accidents most commonly occur in car accidents where a driver was unprepared for the impact. Whiplash injuries are also often sustained in sporting competitions, assaults, snow activities, and slip and fall accidents. If you sustained neck injuries in an accident caused by another person, you can seek compensation for your injuries. You will need to keep a detailed record of the accident, including your symptoms, medical treatment, and expenses.
