Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is a serious injury that demands attention

In some accidents, such as rear-end collisions, the force of the crash can cause your head to rapidly pitch forward and backward, causing a soft-tissue injury commonly known as whiplash. Victims may experience sharp neck pain due to a cervical sprain or strain resulting from the car accident injury. Whiplash accounts for more than one million spine injuries each year.

While whiplash sometimes is dismissed as a minor injury, we have handled many cases in which auto accident victims are coping with intense, long-term pain. Whiplash injury can cause serious damage to the joints, discs, muscles, nerves and ligaments of the neck, and is most serious when a victim's head is turned to the side during impact. If you or a loved one sustained a soft tissue injury in the neck, or a whiplash injury, don't hesitate to contact an experienced attorney at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin. We may be able to put our experience and resources to work for you. Call a North Carolina personal injury lawyer today: 1-866-900-7078.

Whiplash symptoms

Symptoms include neck pain and swelling, tenderness along the back of the neck, muscle spasms in the side or back of the neck, difficulty moving the head, headache, and pain shooting from the neck into either the shoulder or arm. Though common, whiplash can be difficult to diagnose.

Insurance companies may give you a hard time

Insurance companies may try to offer you less than you may deserve related to a whiplash injury. Don't accept any quick settlement if you or someone you know is coping with whiplash after any type of car accident. Studies have found that many whiplash victims struggle with a lifetime of pain and must limit their activities. We know how to pursue the maximum compensation you may be entitled to receive under state law.

Our lawyers have heard countless arguments some insurance companies may make to deny or severely limit compensation. An effective way to deal with the insurance company can be by retaining an aggressive car accident lawyer. By providing a potent combination of experience, ability and commitment, we fight for our clients’ rights.
