Whiplash Injury

Whiplash injuries are among the most common car accident injuries, and they are also among the most challenging to prove. Unlike cuts and fractures, whiplash injuries do not present any outward signs of physical harm. This makes it easier for insurance companies to question the extent of your injuries and offer reduced amounts of compensation.

If you have suffered a whiplash injury, it is important that you work with a skilled lawyer who can help you make your case. Insurance companies often challenge whiplash cases; the attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford will help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Whiplash In Car Accidents

Whiplash, known in medical circles as cervical acceleration-deceleration, is caused when a victim's head is suddenly jerked forward then backward. This motion strains the muscles and ligaments of the neck, causing widespread, persistent pain. Though the pain will fade away in many cases, for some, the symptoms are permanent.

Whiplash injuries are most common in rear-end car accidents. In many cases, the symptoms do not appear for several days after the accident, a fact that unfortunately often raises suspicion among those accused of causing the collision.

Even seemingly minor accidents can lead to whiplash injuries. This creates a challenging situation for many whiplash victims, who are forced to demonstrate a connection between the injuries they have suffered and the other driver's negligence.
