Whiplash Injuries Can Be Hard to Prove
It is often the case that recovering compensation for a whiplash injury is not as simple as filing a claim with the insurance company, in part because these injuries can be difficult to prove. That is one of the reasons you need an attorney – we are well experienced in how to prove these cases.
We Work to Secure Total Compensation for Your Injuries
When you choose to work with us, we will consider all damages you have suffered and make sure that our demand letter takes them into consideration. This will include both past and estimated future medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, lost income and lost earning capacity, and much more, depending on your case.
When a person experiences a whiplash injury, their head snacks back and forth quickly. This causes the neck to stretch beyond its normal range of motion, which can damage the muscles of the neck, the soft tissue, and the tendons. Known also as a hyperextension or hyperflexion injury, improperly designed head restraints can cause whiplash symptoms or make them worse.
X-Rays Are Not the Way to Win Whiplash Cases
Part of the difficulty in proving a whiplash case is the fact that this type of injury does not show up on an x-ray or in a photograph, because the damage is to soft tissue. That is why you need a doctor who will testify to the extent of your injury. We can assure you work with a doctor who specializes in these injuries so that nothing is missed.
Common Symptoms of Whiplash
There are many common symptoms of whiplash that you can keep an eye out for. They include stiffness and pain in the neck, dizziness, decreased range of motion, headache, sleep disturbance, pain in the shoulder, back, or arm, burning, tingling, or prickling in the arms, and cognitive issues. Remember that these symptoms often take hours or even days to show up after an injury.
