Whiplash is a painful neck and back injury caused by sudden jolts that frequently occur during motor vehicle accidents. The symptoms of a whiplash injury can vary significantly, including neck or back pain and stiffness, numbness and tingling in the arms, headaches and dizziness, and blurred vision and general fatigue. In some cases, injury can lead to chronic pain and cognitive difficulties.
If you are suffering from a whiplash injury as a result of a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. The insurance company may agree to pay some or all of your ongoing treatment costs before your whiplash injury claim is finalised.
It's critical to seek medical help as soon as possible if you've been diagnosed with whiplash as it is a condition which may become worse over time.
If you're experiencing pain and suffering, losing wages, or incurring medical bills as a result of your injury, it's important to seek legal advice on how to proceed.
