Oklahoma Whiplash Attorneys

Whiplash, Soft Tissue & Neck Injuries from a Car Accident

Whiplash is a common injury in automobile accidents, extremely painful and debilitating. The symptoms of whiplash can often continue for months, requiring ongoing medical treatment and time away from work. Pain and a limited range of motion often restricts activities, and greatly reduces enjoyment of life and the ability to function after a whiplash injury sustained in a traffic accident.

Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash can be more difficult to prove to insurance companies than other types of injuries, and adjustors may assume a "take it or leave it" approach to paying compensation, with low settlement offers, if any. If you have sustained whiplash in an auto accident, it is in your best interests to speak with an attorney immediately after the accident. Our OK auto accident lawyers at Car Accident Help are well-versed in Oklahoma car insurance law. We have the knowledge, skills, and resources to provide the quality representation you need, and the dedication to aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is an injury to the neck caused by rapid and forceful back and forth motion, similar to cracking a whip. This type of injury is common in rear-end collisions, but can occur in other types of car accidents. Even low-speed, low-impact rear-end collisions, with little or no damage to the vehicles involved, can leave vehicle occupants with a painful whiplash injury.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Whiplash symptoms may not appear immediately after an accident, but, according to the Mayo Clinic, they usually appear within 24 hours of the injury. Common whiplash symptoms include:

  • Pain and stiffness of the neck
  • Neck pain that worsens with movement
  • Loss of range of neck motion
  • Headaches, generally originating at the base of the skull
  • Pain and tenderness in the shoulders, upper back, or arms
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms

Less common symptoms experienced by some victims of whiplash include:

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurring of vision
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Memory difficulties
  • Sleep disturbances

Whiplash Complications

Mayo Clinic reports that although most victims recover from whiplash within a few months, some people may continue to experience pain for months, or even years after an auto accident. Although chronic pain is difficult to predict, it generally occurs more frequently in cases when the initial whiplash symptoms include:

  • Severe neck pain
  • Rapid onset of pain
  • Pain radiating to the arms
  • Headaches
