Do not dismiss a whiplash injury after a car accident

Louisiana car accident victims know that even minor accident injuries can cause lingering problems and pain. No injury, even one that is typically defined as a common or minor injury, should be dismissed when a victim is suffering due to the negligent or reckless actions of another driver. Whiplash is a relatively common car accident injury, but it can have a tremendous negative impact on a victim's life.

Caused by the motion of the head and neck during a collision, whiplash can result in a wide variety of symptoms. Victims may suffer from tingling, localized pain, limited range of motion, shooting pain and headaches. Emotional and mental side effects are also possible, including difficulty sleeping or concentrating, memory problems, depression and irritability. 

With the wide range of possible side effects, recovery from a whiplash injury differs from person to person. Some victims can face months of pain and difficulty, ultimately accumulating medical bills and other costs from pain medication, surgery, therapy and more. Although a common injury, whiplash victims are often left with substantial financial burdens as they try to obtain the compensation that they deserve.

Any time a Louisiana resident is left injured because of the reckless or negligent actions of another person, he or she could be eligible for compensatory damages. Whiplash is a legitimate car accident injury and can have a real and  serious impact on those who have been diagnosed with this issue. Victims would be wise to protect their rights by seeking the counsel of attorneys experienced in accident injury claims.
