What is a whiplash?

One of the most common injuries sustained in an automobile accident is whiplash. Whiplash happens when the head is jerked forward or forced backward by a sudden and unnatural movement, such as impact from an automobile accident. Whiplash refers to injuries suffered in the neck.

If a victim suffers excruciating neck or back injuries and does not seek proper medical attention, these conditions can worsen over time. Victims may suffer memory loss, a concussion, and severe neck and/or back pain. Whiplash injuries can result in:

· Damaged neck ligaments

· Intervertebral joint damage

· Disc damage

· Cervical spine injury

In many cases, whiplash victims only feel a little sore after the crash and do not seek medical attention. This is a mistake because the damages can get progressively worse over time. It is better to be safe than sorry.

If you are a victim of an accident and suffer whiplash, you would be well-advised to contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney to obtain more information about pursuing your legal rights and getting fair compensation for your injuries.
