Injuries that are often associated with whiplash

Whiplash is an injury that generally occurs after a person has been involved in an auto accident. South Carolina residents may have heard it called by other names such as cervical sprain or cervical strain. When a car accident takes place, a person's head may move violently or in an unnatural manner. A person could also experience whiplash after a fall or as the result of being struck in the head.

This can cause pain around the head and neck area that may not present itself for a few days after the injury is sustained. An individual may eventually experience a dull ache in the neck or back pain in addition to headaches and problems with balance. Other symptoms of whiplash may include dizziness and memory issues. Ideally, an individual will seek treatment in the immediate aftermath of a car crash or other incident involving a blow to the head.

If treatment is not provided in a timely manner, there is a chance that whiplash symptoms could evolve into chronic pain. An individual may also be more likely to experience back or neck injuries in the future. With proper treatment, a whiplash victim may be able to recover within a matter of weeks or months. In more extreme cases, recovery could take up to a year or more.

An individual who is recovering from whiplash after a car accident may spend weeks or months out of work or missing out on other pastimes. He or she may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and a reduced quality of life. Individuals may be able to get compensation from a settlement or through a trial. An attorney may help a victim file a lawsuit to ensure that any statutes of limitation don't run out while settlement talks occur.
