WHIPLASH IS A SERIOUS INJURY THAT DEMANDS ATTENTION
In some accidents, such as rear-end collisions, the force of the crash can cause your head to rapidly flip forward and then backward, causing a soft-tissue injury known as whiplash. Victims may experience sharp neck pain due to a cervical sprain or strain resulting from the car accident injury.
While whiplash sometimes is dismissed as a minor injury, we have handled many cases in which auto accident victims are coping with intense, long-term pain. Whiplash injury can cause serious damage to the joints, discs, muscles, nerves and ligaments of the neck, and is most serious when a victim’s head is turned to the side during impact. If you or a loved one sustained a soft tissue injury in the neck, or a whiplash injury, don’t hesitate to contact our personal injury lawyers at Tien Law Firm. We may be able to put our experience and resources to work for you.
Symptoms include neck pain and swelling, tenderness along the cervical spine, muscle spasms in the side or back of the neck, difficulty moving the head, headache, and radiating pain from the neck down either arm.
INSURANCE COMPANIES MAY GIVE YOU A HARD TIME
Whiplash can be hard to diagnose and may not be seen immediately by your medical providers. Insurance companies may try to offer you less than you may deserve related to a whiplash injury. Don’t accept an amount less than what your claim is worth after suffering a whiplash injury. We know how to pursue the maximum compensation you may be entitled to receive under state law.
Our lawyers have heard countless arguments some insurance companies may make to deny or severely limit compensation. An effective way to deal with the insurance company can be by retaining an aggressive car accident lawyer. We put our passion and legal talent into fighting for our clients’ rights every day.
