What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Symptoms of Whiplash

Many people who suffer an auto accident report experiencing the symptoms of whiplash. However, some people regard whiplash as an easily exaggerated injury after an automobile accident. This is partly because whiplash is not a singular condition as defined by the medical community but instead a whole collection of back and neck injuries that results from a sudden distortion of both bone and soft tissue.

No matter its reputation, whiplash can inflict people with a high degree pain. If you or someone you love has suffered from whiplash as a result of a car accident caused by another’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation to aid in you recovery. To discuss your case, contact Jacksonville auto accident attorney Donald Guthrie, P.A., today at 904-296-1088.

The Results of Whiplash

Having whiplash is complicated by the reality that a victim might not feel the pain until days or even weeks later. It may range in severity, but this type of injury damages the nerves, tendons, intervertebral discs, and muscles. If you are experiencing pain right after an accident, however, do not wait and simply hope that your condition improves. The pains listed below may indicate a serious injury to your neck or back:

  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Neck pain or immobility
  • Arm/ hand pain or numbness
  • Concentration problems
  • Ringing of the ears
  • Drowsiness
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo

While some cases of whiplash heal within several weeks, others can leave the victim with chronic neck pain.
