If you have been involved in a devastating accident involving a car, truck, or motorcycle, then you need to be aware of the common symptoms of whiplash. Whiplash is a common accident injury that occurs when the neck suddenly and violently moves back and forth, extending the ligaments and muscles beyond their natural or normal range of motion. Although most people who suffer whiplash injuries recover within a few weeks to a few months, some have persistent pain that lasts for several months or longer, even a lifetime.

Every year, there are nearly 2 million reports of accident-related whiplash in the United States. Most whiplash injuries are the result of rear-end automobile collisions. At Daspit Law Firm, we take great pride in our stellar track record and ability to successfully handle personal injury claims on behalf of clients who have suffered whiplash in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence.

Our compassionate legal professionals understand that a serious neck or back injury can impair your ability to work and earn a living. That is why we are here to stand up for your rights and fight diligently on your behalf to hold those responsible for your whiplash injuries accountable for their negligence.

Signs & Symptoms of Whiplash

The symptoms and signs of whiplash are not always immediately apparent after the accident. In fact, many people who sustain whiplash don’t notice any symptoms for days, weeks, or even months after the accident occurred. This is why it is important to always seek medical attention if you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident. By having a doctor assess you to determine if you suffered any serious injuries, you can obtain a credible medical record of your injury that can be used to support your personal injury claim.

The following are the most common signs and symptoms of whiplash:

  • Neck pain
  • Stiff neck or reduced range of neck motion
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Dizziness/vertigo
  • Numbness
  • Shoulder, muscles, back, or arm pain
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Slower reflexes in your hands or arms
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Memory problems

How Do Doctors Diagnose Whiplash?

I addition to taking your complete medical history and conducting a physical exam, doctors might use the following tests to determine if you have any whiplash injuries:

  • X-Rays: Doctors use electromagnetic energy beams to obtain x-ray images of internal tissues, bones, and organs.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging: An MRI uses large magnets and a computer to generate detailed images of a person’s organs and the soft tissue structures in their body.
  • Computed Tomography Scan: While X-rays and MRIs make horizontal, or axial, images of body, a CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the  body, including a person’s bones, muscles, fat, and organs. CT scans produce images that are far more detailed than X-rays.
