Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries and is most often seen in rear-end collisions. Occurring at speeds as low as 5 mph, whiplash happens when your head and neck are shaken violently back and forth, extending the neck’s muscles and ligaments past their normal range of motion. That’s why when you get rear-ended by another driver, the very nature of the collision puts you at risk of sustaining whiplash.
Symptoms of whiplash include:
- Neck pain
- Stiff neck
- Feeling dizzy
- Tenderness or pain in the shoulder, arms, or back
- Tingling in the arm or arm numbness
Whiplash can be a painful injury with debilitating symptoms, which is why you should see a doctor immediately to get checked out if you haven’t already. In some severe cases, whiplash can cause chronic neck pain and result in long-term complications. Treatment for whiplash may include prescription medication, range of motion exercises, physical therapy, and wearing a neck brace or neck collar to stabilize the neck.
Remember, the longer you wait to seek medical attention after a car accident, the easier it will be for the insurance company to question the severity of your injuries. For PIP claims, you are also required to see a doctor within 14 days of your accident. That’s why you should always get examined by a medical professional within 24 hours of your crash. The last thing you want to do is lose out on the compensation you’re entitled to.
What compensation do you get for whiplash?
The total amount of compensation you get for suffering whiplash in a car accident will depend heavily on the specific details of your crash and the overall impact the injury has had on your life. In general, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Past and Future Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Earning Capacity
- Replacement Services
- Pain and Suffering/Punitive Damages
