Information about Whiplash

Whiplash, also called neck strain or neck sprain, occurs when an individual has his or her head jerked in a forceful motion. This motion can cause injury to the discs, ligaments, cervical muscles, nerve roots and joints of the neck, causing potentially serious repercussions. The most common way whiplash occurs is the event of a car accident, where the victim may be thrown violently from front to back or vice versa.

If your whiplash occurred because of a car accident with a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation under the law to help you pay for your treatment and recovery.
