If you are rear-ended in a car accident, you can end up with whiplash yet not even realize what has happened or understand the full impact of the injury. However, whiplash is a dangerous and potentially deadly injury.
Whiplash happens when there is a sudden jolt to the neck during which the neck is stretched beyond its normal range. It can result in muscle strain, soft tissue damage, and sometimes, over a period of time, nerve damage. The symptoms of whiplash include:
It is important if you have been rear-ended and sustained injuries that you seek medical attention from your doctor, even if your injuries do not seem severe. The symptoms of whiplash may take awhile to develop, and you want to ensure that you are prepared for every possible situation.
It is also important that you follow up with a good personal injury attorney if you have been injured in an accident with a negligent driver. Whiplash can present more debilitating symptoms over time, and you want to make sure that you are covered if you should need expensive medical care down the road.
