Victims of whiplash and other accident injuries have rights

Whiplash is a common, yet commonly misunderstood, type of car accident injury. Accident injuries of all kinds can have a long-term impact on Pennsylvania victims, including any type of damage to the neck or back. Whiplash is thought to be a minor injury, but it can be painful and costly for those who were involved in various types of motor vehicle accidents. 

Whiplash and other injuries to the neck can lead to referred pain in the lower back and between the shoulders. Nerve damage caused by a herniated disc can result in the sensation of heaviness or pain in the arm. Continued pain and drugs used to treat the pain can cause memory damage, clouded judgement and blurry vision. Whiplash victims may even have difficulty sleeping, which could result in depression and other struggles.

It can be hard to fully recover from whiplash. These injuries take time and extensive treatment. In some serious cases, victims may need specialized treatment from a spine doctor. Ultimately, this is costly and overwhelming for victims who may be unable to manage payments, continue with work and seek recovery all at the same time.

Car accident victims have rights that should be protected, including the right to seek compensation from a civil claim. When the reckless behavior or negligence of another driver causes harm to another person, he or she could be liable for damages. Victims of whiplash and other accident injuries should protect their interests by seeking a complete case evaluation with a Pennsylvania lawyer experienced in personal injury cases.
