What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Symptoms of Whiplash

Posted on April 10th, 2009 No Comments

Whiplash is a non-medical term for a head and neck injury that occurs when the head is “whipped” forward, causing the neck muscles to be stretched beyond their normal range of motion. This results in pain, difficulty moving, and tenderness. The most common cause of whiplash is automobile accidents, although it can also occur in sports-related accidents, falls, and other types of injuries.
If you or a loved one have suffered whiplash in an injury or accident, contact Jacksonville whiplash lawyer, Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088, and we can help recover the expenses related to your injury.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Whiplash symptoms may emerge immediately after an injury, or they may take hours or even days to surface. However, the faster the symptoms develop, there is a greater chance that significant damage has occurred. Some of the symptoms to look out for include:

•    Neck swelling, tenderness and pain.
•    Muscle spasms.
•    Shooting pain running from the neck to the limbs.
•    Headaches and dizziness.
•    Difficulty moving the neck.
