Are You Suffering From Whiplash After a Car Accident?
Out of all the various types of car accidents, rear-end collisions are the ones that are primarily responsible for causing whiplash. While most medical professionals and insurance companies do not consider whiplash injuries to be serious or life-threatening, victims of whiplash often experience severe and debilitating pain others cannot comprehend. We understand what you are going through, and that is why we are here to help.
In most cases whiplash is not the only injury sustained in such accidents. Some of the other injuries which commonly accompany whiplash include head and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury and more. Symptoms of these types of car accident injuries will not always occur immediately. In fact, many victims will not see any evidence of such injuries until symptoms begin to appear between 24 -72 hours after the accident. Neck pain, headaches, blurred vision, fatigue, dizziness, difficulty breathing, and other symptoms may be indicators of more serious injuries.
If you or a loved one has sustained whiplash or experienced any discomfort or symptom which could indicate more serious injuries, we recommend you consult with an East Texas car accident injury lawyer at Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher, Perry, Runge, Robertson and Smith Law Firm as soon as possible. Our auto accident attorneys will be able to review your accident, help you get the medical attention you need, analyze all accident, injury and police reports and advise you on how best to proceed.

Contrary to what you may believe, speed does not necessarily play a role in the severity of an individual’s neck injuries. Speeds as low as 15-20 miles per hour are capable of generating sufficient energy to cause a severe case of whiplash. One significant factor is the sooner the symptoms develop following the accident, the greater the chance of serious and permanent damage. That is why we urge you to contact our firm immediately following your accident.
