Symptoms Of WhiplashMost accident victims do not suffer long-term discomfort and complications from whiplash. Nonetheless, the symptoms of whiplash may last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Research indicates that most victims fully recover within 3 months of the accident. Drivers and passengers who experience long-term problems may experience headaches and chronic pain for years after the disabling accident. While some of this chronic pain may be traced to damaged neck joints, ligaments, or disks, much of it medically remains unexplainable.

Symptoms of whiplash typically include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness;
  • Headache;
  • Dizziness;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Decreased range of motion;
  • Shoulder, arm, and back pain,
  • Unusual sensations such as tingling in the neck or arms
  • Interference with sleep;
  • Interference with concentration;
  • Fatigue; and
  • Cognitive and psychological problems.

Accident victims who have sustained a whiplash injury should see a physician as soon as possible to treat any likelihood of present and future injury. They should also consult with a personal injury attorney to determine if they may recover the medical expenses and other losses that they incur as a result of the whiplash injury.

Attorneys must have the ability and expertise to analyze all of the legal and technical issues of a particular legal matter.
