Suffered a Car Accident Neck Injury in Atlanta?

In the first few hours after a car crash, many people feel relieved to have escaped unharmed. Others must face suffering from an acute injury like a broken bone or concussion. Both people often believe, however, that whatever they suffered during the moments of the crash is the end of their harm - until severe pain, stiffness, and other problems turn an "uninjured" head and neck into a major obstacle.

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury that occurs when the head and neck are thrown forward and backward suddenly. It commonly occurs in car collisions, especially rear-end and head-on collisions, but the symptoms may not appear for days after the accident. When they do, the cycle of seeking medical treatment and accepting newly-imposed limitations can begin all over again. If you've suffered whiplash in a car crash or other accident, don't hesitate to contact the dedicated Atlanta personal injury attorneys at the Grant Law Office. For a no-cost consultation, please call (404) 995-3955.

What Compensation May Be Available for Whiplash Injuries in Georgia?

Whiplash injuries may be caused by the negligence of another person or party. For instance, a negligent driver may cause a car accident that results in whiplash.

Georgia law allows injured people to seek monetary compensation from any party whose negligence caused injury, including whiplash injuries. Compensation covers a wide range of losses related to a whiplash injury, including:

  • Medical bills, including bills for prescriptions, medical equipment, office visits, and other costs;
  • Therapy and rehabilitation bills for physical therapy, occupational therapy, and similar treatments;
  • Lost wages from any missed work due to whiplash injuries;
  • Bills for repairing or replacing a damaged vehicle or other property damaged in an accident; and
  • Compensation for pain and suffering.

If the whiplash injuries were suffered in a car collision, an insurance settlement may be an option. An experienced car accident lawyer in Georgia can help you determine what sources of compensation are available and pursue those that best fit your needs.

Whiplash Injuries: Now and Later

Whiplash can cause both acute and chronic injuries. In the hours or days following a crash, the symptoms of whiplash typically include neck pain and stiffness, headache, dizziness, blurred vision, and fatigue. Ringing in the ears, problems with memory or concentration, and sleep disturbances can also occur.

When a whiplash injury first presents itself, treatment typically includes muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory medications, and other medications aimed at reducing swelling and stiffness to relieve pain. Physical therapy may be recommended for more serious cases of whiplash, especially if it becomes difficult to move the neck or the pain spreads into the shoulders or arms.

Most people with whiplash recover in a few weeks, according to the National Institutes of Health. In other cases, however, symptoms persist for months or years. Severe whiplash can cause permanent damage to many of the delicate structures in the neck, including the spine, nerves, muscles, and soft tissue. When whiplash injuries persist, the injured person may face a lifetime of chronic pain, restricted movement, and limited opportunities to engage in meaningful life activities like work, sports, and other hobbies.
