Pursuing Justice for Whiplash Victims

Whiplash

Whiplash is an injury most frequently associated with car accidents. It occurs when the car is struck and the victim's body, restrained by a seatbelt, suddenly changes direction or stops. The head, unrestrained, continues moving and therefore suddenly whips in a side-to-side or forward-and-backward motion, causing injury to the neck. Because whiplash involves injury to the soft tissue in the neck, it cannot be seen on X-rays. Whiplash is often difficult to diagnose and is even more difficult to treat. 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.

With our experience in handling personal injury claims, particularly those relating to whiplash, the team at Meyerkord & Meyerkord can offer experienced legal counsel to help you address an insurance claim or lawsuit related to this type of injury. When you choose to involve an injury lawyer at our offices, you will benefit from our knowledge and resources as we offer helpful guidance and conduct a complete investigation into the cause of your injuries and who should be held accountable.

Your initial consultation is free and confidential, giving you the valuable opportunity of getting more information about the subject before making decisions about your legal options.

Long-Term Effects

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.

Whether you were hurt in an auto accident or any other type of accident, we are ready to help you - contact us today!
