What Is a Whiplash Injury?

Whiplash is an injury that gets its name from the forceful, rapid, back-and-forth movement of the neck that causes it, similar to the cracking of a whip. This type of injury is very common in rear-end accidents, but it can also occur in other types of motor vehicle crashes and other types of injuries, such as contact sports. Whiplash typically involves muscles, tendons, nerves, and discs in the neck and includes damage to soft tissue that cannot be seen on X-rays. Although CT scans and X-rays may be used to help diagnose this injury, an MRI is the most effective diagnostic tool to show sprains and strains of the neck.

What Are the Short and Long-Term Consequences of Whiplash?

While some people who suffer whiplash injuries recover within a few weeks to a few months, others have persistent pain that continues for much longer, particularly if it is not properly treated soon after the injury. Symptoms of whiplash usually appear within 24 hours to several days after an accident, which may include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Shoulder pain
  • Back pain
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness or tingling in the arm or hand
  • Pain in the arm or hand
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Sleeplessness
  • Difficulty concentrating

Complications of whiplash may include severe neck pain, shooting or burning pain, tingling or numbness in the arms, hands, legs, and feet, and headaches. Chronic, long-term pain and discomfort from whiplash can interfere with everyday activities and significantly impact a victim’s quality of life.

Who Is Liable for a Whiplash Injury?

If you sustained whiplash in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the responsible party may be held liable for your injuries. As a soft tissue injury, whiplash may be difficult to prove to the at-fault party’s insurance company, which can make recovering compensation for your injuries a challenge. Insurance companies prefer to treat whiplash as a minor injury, thereby minimizing their payouts when it actually is not. Your best chance of being fully compensated for your losses is to have an experienced Bennington personal injury attorney handling your claim.
