Oakland Whiplash Injury Attorney
Whiplash Caused by Car Accidents
Whiplash is an injury commonly associated with car accidents. When a car is struck by another vehicle or collides with a fixed object, the force of impact may cause a driver or passenger's head to whip suddenly in a forward and backward or side to side motion. This sudden movement may cause injury to the bone or soft tissue in the neck. Whiplash itself is not usually a life-threatening injury, but it may leave a victim in a great deal of pain. It may lead to a prolonged period of partial disability due to stiffness and pain in the neck which may extend into the shoulders or arms in some cases.
If you suffered whiplash in a car accident in Oakland, we recommend contacting an attorney at our offices as soon as possible. Currently, diagnosing and treating whiplash may be difficult. There may be no visible injuries and if the bones are not damaged, x-rays may not show that the neck has been injured. A victim, however, will certainly know if he or she has whiplash - the pain will indicate that something is wrong. Our firm is experienced in dealing with insurance claims and lawsuits that involve whiplash and all types of related car accident injuries. We understand what to look for in these cases and will strive to recover the full financial compensation you need for medical expenses, pain medication, chiropractic visits, therapy and lost wages from missed work.
