Seeking Compensation for Atlanta Whiplash Injuries

By Grant Law Office on September 6, 2012

Whiplash is a term that is commonly used to describe a number of different neck injuries. Victims of Georgia car accidents who suffer from soft tissue cervical hyperextension injuries, cervical strains, or sprains are said to be suffering from a whiplash injury. These types of injuries typically result from auto accidents where the vehicle occupant’s head is whipped back and forth, or is jerked or twisted, in a sudden motion.

Whiplash injuries can occur even in low-speed collisions. For example, even a fender bender is sufficient to cause a whiplash injury. Victims may only feel a slight tightness at first, or they may experience severe neck pain. In either case, it is important to see a doctor right away. Symptoms from whiplash injuries can manifest immediately or they can develop over several days.

It is common for whiplash victims to feel neck pain and a decreased mobility of the neck. Some victims may also experience muscle spasms, headaches, and tenderness along the back of the neck. Victims of these types of injuries may need an X-ray, a cervical collar to take weight off the neck, and prescription drugs for pain relief. Much more serious injuries can also result from whiplash, including concussions, permanent brain damage and disc herniation.

If a whiplash injury occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, the injured victim can pursue compensation by filing a personal injury claim. A successful injury claim against the at-fault party should result in monetary compensation for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

The experienced Atlanta whiplash injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C., are committed to representing crash victims who have suffered significant injury, such as disc herniation and brain damage and have a proven track record of getting severely injured crash victims in an Atlanta auto accident.
