Whiplash Injury Attorneys in New York City

Personal Injury Actions for Whiplash

Whiplash is a serious soft tissue injury affecting the neck. Typically caused by a rapid back-and-forth or side-to-side motion of the head due to a sudden impact, whiplash can cause severe pain, limited mobility, and headaches. Depending on the severity of damage to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the neck, a person who experiences whiplash may suffer from chronic pain or other lasting complications and disabilities.

Car accidents, specifically rear-end collisions, are one of the leading causes of whiplash. However, any sudden impact or forceful movement of the head and neck can cause this injury. Our NYC whiplash injury lawyers take on cases involving not only traffic accidents but also falls, assaults, and other physical trauma. We file personal injury actions on behalf of people in all walks of life who are dealing with the consequences of whiplash.

Don’t Ignore Whiplash Symptoms

If you have been involved in a car accident or any incident that may have caused you harm, it is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of whiplash:

  • Pain and stiffness in the neck
  • Pain that worsens when you move your neck
  • Inability to turn or nod your head
  • Shoulder, upper back, or arm pain and tenderness
  • Headaches, often originating from the base of the skull
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Do not ignore the symptoms of whiplash. Seek immediate medical attention, and be sure to tell your doctor how you were injured. Keep detailed records, and talk to a New York City personal injury attorney to see if you may have grounds for a case that would compensate you for medical bills, ongoing treatment, lost earnings, pain, suffering, and possibly more.
