What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is an injury that occurs to someone’s neck due to a dramatic and forceful back-and-forth motion. This is usually the result of a rear-end collision, but can also come from other types of crashes, such as from amusement park rides.
Common Symptoms of Whiplash
Whiplash is painful and can create different symptoms depending on the severity of the injury. Here are the most common symptoms of whiplash:
- Pain in the neck that gradually gets worse with the movement of the neck or upper body
- Pain in the shoulders
- Pain in the upper back
- Tingling/numbness in the arms or hands
How Does Whiplash Happen?
Whiplash happens when you damage from any part of the neck. This can include any of the muscles, vertebrate, or connective tissue.
Treatment for Whiplash
Treatments vary depending on the severity of the injury. Most cases of whiplash leave the individual sore for a couple of days, which can be treated with painkillers and rest. For more severe cases, medical treatment, such as therapy or stronger medications, may be required.
How Long Do Symptoms Last?
Each individual case is different. Depending on the injury, symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few months. It is important to seek medical attention after an accident to ensure that you are getting the right treatment for your injury.
Compensation for Whiplash Victims
If you are looking to seek compensation for medical expenses and damages from your whiplash injury, your compensation amount may vary. The total depends on different factors such as:
- Medical bills resulting from the whiplash
- Future costs of medical expenses to treat the injury
- Lost wages due to the injury
- Lost enjoyment of life due to the injury
- Compensation for pain and suffering
