Miami Car Accident Whiplash Lawyer

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries suffered by car crash victims. It is also one of the most time-intensive injuries from which to heal. Because whiplash causes damage to soft tissues, it cannot simply be fixed with a cast, medication, or even surgery. Whiplash is a real and devastating injury that you should not have had to deal with in the  first place. If you were harmed by another road user’s careless or reckless behavior, a Miami car accident whiplash accident lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law is here to help you take legal action against them.

What is Whiplash?

Most people think whiplash is just a sore neck. They should think again. According to the Mayo Clinic, whiplash is a soft tissue neck injury caused by a rapid and forceful back-and-forth motion of the head (and neck), akin to the cracking of a whip. During this traumatic motion, muscle fibers, ligaments, nerves, and tendons can be torn. Even worse, bone and discs can be damaged. If you have ever experienced it, or are experiencing it now, you know that whiplash is no joke. It causes serious pain, immobility, and difficulty simply moving about the house. Whiplash can last for weeks or months. Sometimes it causes permanent damage to soft tissues, leaving the car crash victim with permanent pain and the type of immobility that is often reserved for spinal fracture victims.

Signs and Symptoms You May Have Whiplash

  • Neck pain
  • Stiffness in the neck and loss of range of motion
  • A headache that starts at the base of the skull
  • Pain in the back, shoulders, or upper arms
  • Numbness in the arms or fingers

  • Depression

Four Most Common Types of Crashes That Result in Whiplash

Because whiplash is caused simply by the head rocking forward and backward in quick succession, whiplash can happen in virtually any type of car crash. It does not only happen in rear end crashes. However, the following four crash scenarios are the most likely to cause whiplash.

  1. Rear-enders
  2. Rollovers
  3. T-Bone Crashes
  4. Side-Impact/Glancing Collisions

Call a Miami Whiplash Car Accident Lawyer Today

Whiplash is a serious injury that demands a personal injury claim to be filed against the party who caused the crash, even if it is the only injury that you suffered in the collision. If you are still in pain a week or more after the crash, there is no telling how long your pain and immobility may last. The driver who caused the crash should be liable for your medical expenses, lost wages, physical therapy expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. If you were injured by another driver’s negligence, there is nothing that should stop you from taking legal action to protect yourself and your family from the economic and non-economic harm that has been caused to you.
