West Virginia Whiplash Lawyer

Whiplash is a very common injury that can happen in a car accident. When a motor vehicle occupant is in a car that is struck from behind, it is especially likely for whiplash to occur. This injury happens because of the sharp and sudden force propelling the person’s head forward, followed by the sudden move backward when the vehicles come to a stop.

At Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, our auto accident attorneys know how truly serious whiplash injuries can be. Our West Virginia whiplash lawyers work hard to help our clients on the path to recovery by securing monetary damages in amounts that fairly compensate them for their losses.

Whiplash Symptoms

In many cases, if you have a whiplash injury, you may be unaware you are injured for hours or even days after the accident. It is thought that this may be due to the adrenaline and shock that comes with being involved in a motor vehicle collision.

Even if you initially do not believe an injury has happened, it is still a very good idea to seek medical attention following an accident, especially when it involves a rear-end collision. Symptoms of whiplash may include the following:

  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Reduced range of motion in neck
  • Headaches that radiate up from the base of the neck
  • Pain that gets worse with neck movement
  • Shoulder pain
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness

You may also experience depression, anxiety, irritability, difficulty with concentration, and blurred vision. It is important for you to get medical help for symptoms of whiplash. There may be additional injuries to your tissues or fractures may be present as well.
