Whiplash is an injury that can greatly decrease the quality of life of those affected. If you have been involved in a whiplash car accident the personal injury lawyers at Smith Thompson can help.
Whiplash related injuries are caused by a violent shock experienced by the muscles protecting the neck. These injuries are common in rear-end collisions, T-bone collisions, and other types of high impact motor vehicle collisions. It is critical that you seek medical help if you were the victim of a whiplash injury, and legal help to protect your interests.
In a whiplash injury, the neck is violently forced back, and then immediately jerked forward, with a sharp movement that is similar to a whipping motion. This action leaves the neck muscles and other soft neck-related tissue strained. There is a high risk for injury to the spinal vertebrae, neck joints, discs, ligaments, and nerves. In extreme cases, a severe whiplash injury may result in a spinal cord and head injury. The courts take personal injury very seriously.
