Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries, and its severity is often downplayed by insurance adjusters.
If you suffered whiplash or other bodily harm in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, New York personal injury attorney Marc S. Albert may be able to help you pursue financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, and other related damages.
Whiplash most frequently occurs in rear-end motor vehicle collisions, when your head is suddenly snapped backward then forward. The impact of whiplash affects your neck muscles and ligaments, and it can cause temporary discomfort or long-term pain.
While many people who experience whiplash recover within a few weeks, others may develop chronic, progressively worsening pain. Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Neck stiffness
- Blurry vision
In some cases, the impact that causes whiplash can also result in damage to joints, discs, muscles, ligaments, and bones in the neck.
