Injuries from car accidents can be so damaging because the problems they cause are often widespread. Even when injuries after a car accident don’t immediately seem severe, they can often cause lingering health issues that worsen over time. One such injury is whiplash.

Whiplash is a widely misunderstood injury. While difficult to diagnose, the damage to the vulnerable structures in the neck can have lasting effects like ongoing neck pain, dizziness, migraines, and anxiety. These ongoing health effects mean there are lasting effects on the victim’s life in other ways. They have to contend with the costs of expensive pain management options like physical therapy and pharmaceuticals, as well as the immeasurable loss of a forced lifestyle change.

While whiplash injuries aren’t always obvious, it’s important to know the signs and what steps to take if you notice whiplash in order to give your body and your finances the best chances at recovery.

What Is Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck and spine injury caused by the strong forces at play in a car crash. These forces can occur even when the car isn’t traveling at high speeds. Whiplash is caused by a sudden rocking motion of the spine back and forth, causing the top of the spine to endure stress the way the tip of a whip does when cracked. This force causes the muscles and soft tissue in the neck to tear and can also damage the nerves and discs in the spine.

Common Signs of Whiplash

There are a number of symptoms to watch out for following a car collision to ensure that you take the correct precautionary steps and put yourself in the best possible position medically and legally. Symptoms of whiplash include problems like:

  • Stiffness and pain in the neck
  • Soreness in the upper arms, back, and shoulders
  • Headaches radiating from the base of the skull
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea

Whether you notice whiplash injuries immediately after a collision or not, you should get medical care as soon as possible following a car crash. Many injuries, including soft tissue injuries found in whiplash, aren’t always clear right away. They can take days, weeks, or even months to worsen to the point that they’re causing you severe pain. Getting treatment in a timely manner can benefit you in two ways.

One benefit is that you have a chance to tackle the damage to your body before they can worsen. Another benefit is that they create a medical paper trail tying your injury to the time of the crash, which can be important in any legal pursuits.

One more step you should take after a car crash is to consult a lawyer. Only an experienced personal injury lawyer has the expertise needed to navigate the complex rules and regulating car crashes and diagnosed neck injuries. On top of these concerns the other drivers and insurance agencies involved in the collision will do their best to limit your payouts.

When things go wrong, it’s common to want problems to just go away, but if you don’t take the proper steps after a neck injury, you could miss out on the compensation you deserve.
