Experience And Results Are What Matter

Whiplash is a common car accident injury

Not all car accidents result in life-threatening injuries. Many North Carolina residents are able to walk away from their crashes with seemingly minor or non-existent physical harm. However, injuries from a car accident can manifest in the days and weeks after a person experiences a crash, and one of the most common types of car accident injuries is whiplash.

Also known as a strain or sprain of the cervical spine, whiplash happens when a person's head is thrown forward and backward at a fast rate of speed. In rear-end collisions, whiplash can happen to the individuals in the front car when their vehicle jerks forward on impact.

Not everyone who experiences the soft tissue damage of whiplash will feel it in the moments after their crash. In fact, a whiplash injury may not begin to appear until after the victim has had a chance to come to grips with the accident. Like other types of injuries, whiplash can result in varying degrees of pain and suffering, from manageable to debilitating.

Any form of accident-related injury should be evaluated and treated by a medical professional. Even a mild form of whiplash can result in a victim suffering pain and limited range of motion, decreased mobility and other significant setbacks. More serious injuries may prevent a victim from getting to work, caring for family members and leading a life similar to that before his accident.

After having injuries treated by medical professionals, car accident victims may need to get more information about legal options in their cases. Although a whiplash injury may seem at first to be manageable, it can lead to further complications that can put pressure on both the emotional and financial resources of the victim.
