accident-injuries (1)Common Injuries Sustained in Car Accidents

Auto accidents in Pennsylvania can lead to many injuries, whether they be burns, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries or slipped discs. However, one of the most common injuries sustained in a car accident is whiplash. While this injury isn’t always obvious, it can cause significant pain and suffering to those with it.

Understanding Whiplash

Whiplash is an injury that happens when the neck jerks back and forth rapidly. This can be the result of an impact while riding or driving a motor vehicle. Some common symptoms of whiplash that sufferers experience may include (but are not limited to):

  • Headaches
  • Pain/numbness in the hand or arms
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Pain or stiffness in the neck
  • Lower back pain
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Sleep problems
  • Dizziness

Generally, people with whiplash do recover, however some people can experience chronic symptoms for many years, resulting in countless medical bills or even lost wages and missed time from work.

How Whiplash Can Affect Someone’s Life

When the symptoms of whiplash persist after your motor vehicle accident, it can impact life in many ways. These often include:

  • Experiencing chronic pain
  • Being unable to work
  • Medical bills resulting from ongoing treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Even when injuries aren’t always visible, whiplash can cause chronic pain and have a major effect on an injured victim’s life. If you have sustained a whiplash injury because of someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries in Pennsylvania. To obtain this compensation, you must file a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. You can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, ongoing rehab treatment, and more.
