Whiplash is a difficult type of soft tissue injury for many reasons. First of all, it may not be immediately apparent at the time of the car accident that caused it. The victim might not need to get in the ambulance and go to the hospital. The pain may not begin until the next day or later. Furthermore, the full intensity of the whiplash injury may not reveal itself until even further down the line. These obstacles should not prevent you from seeking compensation.
The muscles in the back and neck are like rubber bands. There are limits to how much they can stretch. When pushed too far unprepared, the result is a soft tissue injury. Scar tissue builds up and impacts range of motion.
How Severe Is Your Injury?
We understand that it is critical that we wait until the severity of the whiplash is fully understood before moving forward. This is important, because we want to make certain the amount of compensation we pursue is adequate for the severity of the injury. We will take great care to see that MRI results and other test results are properly reviewed. We will make certain to pursue the full amount of compensation you need.
Many people mistakenly believe that whiplash is not a serious matter. It is serious.
- In fact, it can have a permanent impact, particularly on people who work in physical jobs.
- They may no longer be able to move as necessary without pain.
- They may not be able to do heavy lifting.
- Compensation needs to cover any impact to a person’s career.
