Recover a Fair Settlement for Whiplash After a Car Accident
Whiplash is an injury most frequently associated with car accidents. Because whiplash involves injury to the soft tissue in the neck, it cannot be seen on X-rays and is often difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat. This can be problematic when filing an injury claim with the insurance company.

What Causes Whiplash?
Whiplash occurs when the force of the collision causes the body of the vehicle occupant, restrained by a seatbelt, to suddenly change direction or stop. The head, unrestrained, continues moving and can whips from a side-to-side or forward-and-backward, causing injury to the neck.
How is Whiplash Treated?
Treatment usually consists of pain management and immobilization to allow the muscles, tendons and other tissue to heal, with common approaches including physical therapy, massage and chiropractic.
Long-Term Effects of Whiplash
Whiplash may have serious and lasting results on a victim, leading to neck pain, stiffness, headaches and possibly an inability to work or take part in physical activity of any kind. The severity of symptoms experienced by the victim will vary depending on the extent of injury to the neck. In these cases, recovering financial compensation may go a long way in helping a victim with lost wages and medical expenses.
