Whiplash Injury

Chicago Whiplash Injury Lawyer

Whiplash is not a medical term, but it is commonly used to refer to a range of injuries that are caused by an overextension of the neck. Other names for whiplash include hyperextension injury and cervical strain or sprain. Whiplash is commonly caused by automobile accidents, but can also be the result of sports activities, assault, falls, or any type of blow to the head or body that can cause the neck to whip back quickly. Whiplash can also be caused by repetitive stress or strain to the neck.

Neck Injuries Are Common and Can Happen Even at Low Speeds, So a Person May Not Even Know They’ve Been Hurt

Sometimes the effects of whiplash aren’t felt immediately because an accident can happen so fast, and there is usually plenty of adrenaline coursing through the body. Shock can prevent a person from feeling pain. The neck is a delicate area, so it is important to seek medical attention, even if you think your whiplash injury doesn’t seem serious.

Some symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness, tenderness, swelling, muscle spasms, reduced range of motion, headaches, and dizziness. It is vital that you call an experienced whiplash injury attorney at The Horwitz Law Group as soon as possible to help guide you through the medical and legal system so you receive the full compensation you deserve.
