Do You Need a Milwaukee Whiplash Lawyer?
If you were the victim of a rear-end car crash or auto accident that left you with whiplash, you should consider hiring an experienced personal injury attorney to help you recover damages. A Milwaukee whiplash lawyer can help you recover losses due to the chronic neck pain, soft tissue damage, medical expenses and lost wages that whiplash and soft tissue trauma can cause.
What Causes Whiplash?
In most cases, whiplash is caused by a rear-end car crash. When one car is hit from behind by another, the first car will lurch forward, sometimes with great force. For those drivers wearing seatbelts, their bodies move with their cars, but their heads and necks (because they are unrestrained) will abruptly extend and then “whip” back. This sudden motion and strain can cause severe neck injuries, soft tissue damage and pain.
Symptoms of Whiplash and Neck Soft Tissue Damage
Whiplash and soft tissue damage can occur with just about any sort of rear-end collision or sharp, jerking action, and it involves injury to the neck muscles and ligaments, as well as the spinal discs. Soft tissue trauma to the neck and/or whiplash symptoms may include:
- Blurred Vision
- Neck Pain
- Neck Stiffness
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Ringing in the Ears
- Insomnia and Sleeping Problems
- Moodiness and Irritability
- Memory Problems
If you or someone you love is experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may be suffering from neck trauma and/or whiplash. While whiplash often only takes two to three months to heal, severe cases may linger on for months and require prescription pain relievers, physical therapy and muscle relaxers.
