Got in a Wreck & Hurt your Neck? Seek immediate Treatment for Whiplash Symptoms and All Injuries After an Auto Accident – Then Call TOLLINCHI LAW to Discuss Your Legal Options.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries suffered in auto accidents. The National Institutes of Health defines whiplash as, “a soft-tissue injury to the neck – is also called neck sprain or neck strain. It is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck, usually because of sudden extension and flexion. The disorder commonly occurs because of an automobile accident and may include injury to intervertebral joints, discs, and ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots.”

The unexpected sudden jolt and rigorous back and forth movement that occurs at the point of impact of a rear-end auto accident can often result in whiplash injuries. This type of trauma to the neck may produce immediate symptoms, but most signs and symptoms of whiplash may not be noticeable for days. These signs and symptoms may include:

  • Pain in neck that may increase with movement.
  • Neck stiffness
  • Inability to move the neck
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Shoulder, upper arm, or back tenderness or pain.
  • Dizziness or blurred vision
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Memory lapses.

Depending on the severity of the accident, your whiplash symptoms may appear to be mild. However, the long-term effects of whiplash can lead to chronic and consistent debilitating symptoms due to permanent damage. Whiplash injuries should never be ignored.

In the State of Florida, if you are permanently injured because of a whiplash injury from an auto accident, you have four years to pursue a whiplash claim. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, living expenses, property damage, loss of income, pain, and suffering.

The experienced personal injury attorneys at TOLLINCHI LAW will help you get the compensation that you deserve by evaluating all the variables in your case.
