Phoenix Whiplash Attorneys

Most people have heard of whiplash, a common consequence of car accidents. However, this painful condition is not completely understood, even by doctors. There is currently no cure for whiplash; the most doctors can do is help their patients ease their pain while they wait for the injury to heal.

We want to help you win the fair compensation you deserve after suffering from an accident caused by someone else’s negligent behavior. Call our offices at 800-763-0964 for legal information that can help you.

Causes and Signs of Whiplash

Whiplash can result whenever a person’s head is jerked suddenly back and forth. This occurs most frequently in car accidents, especially those involving rear endings, but it can also be caused by a sports injury or amusement park ride. The current medical theory is that whiplash is caused by a stretching or tearing of ligaments in the neck’s vertebrae.

You may want to speak with a Phoenix car accident whiplash attorney if you are suffering any of the following symptoms after a car wreck:

  • Pain in your neck, back, or shoulders
  • Persistent headaches
  • Tingling or “pins and needles” sensations in your back, arms, or legs

The most common treatments for whiplash are over the counter painkillers and ice packs. In severe cases, the patient may need to wear a neck brace until the injury is healed. The pain may resolve within a few days, but in some cases it may become a debilitating chronic condition.
