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 can result from either the forces that push your head and neck forward or the subsequent jerk backward 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 Nashville 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 that affects the muscles, 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, and testing:
    1. Range of motion in neck and shoulder
    2. Tenderness in neck and shoulder
    3. Reflexes in limbs
    4. Strength in limbs
    5. 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 in Nashville 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.
