What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash usually occurs when your neck is jerked forward because of an impact from behind, such as a rear-end auto accident. The sudden motion causes the tendons and ligaments in your neck to stretch and tear, and it may also cause disc injury. This type of can result from either the forces that push your head and neck forward or the subsequent jerk backwards that follows the force of impact.

What are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

In addition to neck pain, symptoms of whiplash also can include:

  • dizziness,
  • nausea,
  • fatigue,
  • headaches,
  • loss of range of motion in the neck,
  • shoulder and upper back pain,
  • tingling or numbness in the arms,
  • blurred vision
  • ringing in the ears,
  • irritability,
  • difficulty sleeping,
  • and difficulty concentrating or remembering.

Symptoms of whiplash may not appear until days after an accident, which can make proving whiplash injuries complicated, but some whiplash victims continue to experience pain for months or even years after the injury occurred. Physical therapy is often required to treat it. Our whiplash injury attorneys can gather the evidence and medical witness testimony needed to show the severity of your injuries and help get you the best possible results for your claim.

How to Diagnose Whiplash

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury, which affects the muscle, tendons, and ligaments in your neck, and may not be visible on standard x-rays. If you suspect a whiplash injury, inform your doctor. They may perform one or more of these tests to make a diagnosis.

  • Physical exam, testing:
    • Range of motion in neck and shoulder
    • Tenderness in neck and shoulder
    • Reflexes in limbs
    • Strength in limbs
    • Sensation in limbs
  • X-ray exam
  • CT scan
  • MRI scan
  • PET scan

What Compensation is Available for Whiplash Injuries?

If you were in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, and have since experienced severe neck pain, you deserve compensation. Our whiplash injury lawyers may be able to help you get compensation for:

  • the cost of your injuries,
  • the ongoing cost of your treatment,
  • the pain you’ve suffered, and
  • the disruption to your daily life your injury has caused.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

We believe that everyone deserves legal representation, regardless of their economic circumstances, especially when their injuries aren’t their fault. That’s why when you contact the personal injury lawyers at Ponce Law after an auto accident, you owe us nothing unless you get compensation.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
