Whiplash is a common injury after a car accident. This type of injury involves an abrupt back-and-forth extension and retraction of the neck that results from a strong, sudden force, as in a rear-end accident. When the victim is struck from behind, the force causes the head to first fly back and then shoot forward, hyperextending the neck and resulting in injury.
Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries can be very painful and extremely disruptive to a person’s life, but they may not present symptoms immediately after an accident. In fact, it could take a few days before the victim even feels any pain, but this delay could seriously harm their claim. That is why it is extremely important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident, even if the victim doesn’t initially feel hurt. Without immediate medical treatment, it can be difficult to prove whiplash and the extent to which it interferes with the victim’s life. It is critical to have a qualified doctor record whiplash injuries as soon as possible after an accident in order to maximize the chance of success in a claim.
