Whiplash is a common injury most people think of when they hear about a motor vehicle or other accident. The term whiplash is somewhat of an imprecise term describing a broad range of injuries to the neck area and is also referred to as a whiplash associated disorder (WAD). Causes are not specifically known, and whiplash can be sustained by an individual in ways other than a motor vehicle accident. It is most often produced by a sudden jerking movement of the head and neck.
Fractures can often lead to arthritis and other complications, which can be life-altering. It is also possible to receive compensation for scarring and other types of injuries. Whiplash-type injuries that involve the neck with associated headaches, back and overall body pain can lead to disabling chronic pain, sometimes referred to as chronic pain syndrome or fibromyalgia, can be absolutely disabling and life-altering. These “invisible injuries” are often mocked and not given serious recognition by insurance companies. We have had extensive experience representing numerous victims with chronic pain syndrome and fibromyalgia. We know these conditions can be devastating, and we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
