Los Angeles Whiplash Lawyer

Whiplash and Car Accidents in Los Angeles, California

Did you or a loved one suffer from whiplash in a LA car accident? A car accident lawyer at Pacific Attorney Group may be able to help. Whiplash is a common injury associated with car accidents, due to the sudden force of the impact causing the head to jerk suddenly in a side-to-side or front-to-back motion. When this occurs, the nerves, muscles or tendons in the neck may become damaged and this may lead to pain and stiffness. The most common cause of whiplash in a car accident is in the event of a rear-end collision, but this may also occur in a side-impact crash or a collision involving a single-vehicle accident and a fixed object. In any situation, whiplash is a serious form of neck injury that may lead to lasting pain.

What is Whiplash?

When a vehicle is impacted suddenly in a car accident, the occupants may experience a form of neck injury that is caused by damage to tissue, ligaments and discs in the neck. Whiplash is most often characterized by chronic pain and stiffness in the neck, but additional symptoms may include headaches, muscle spasms, ringing in the ears, shoulder pain, trouble sleeping, fatigue, weakness, blurry vision, difficulty concentrating, nausea, pain or heaviness in the arms, and pain between the shoulder blades.

The troubling issue with whiplash is that a victim may experience severe pain or other symptoms, put upon examination there may be no solid medical findings. The joint, for instance, may look normal but may be a source of great pain for the victim.
