Whiplash

Accidents And Whiplash Injuries

Denver attorneys representing victims of whiplash injuries

Whiplash most commonly occurs in read-end car collisions. The injury happens when the force of collision causes a sudden distortion on the neck. While it is not completely understood how the mechanism of the injury work, it has still become a very common and well-known injury that many car insurance companies will cover.

Whiplash can cause what is known as “whiplash associated disorders”, a set of complaints that are the aftermath of the injury. These can include;

  • Neck pain or stiffness
  • Decreased range of neck motion
  • Decreased reflexes
  • Sensory weaknesses or disturbances

These can be debilitating, and affect that victim severely. Medical bills, lost wages, and a decrease in quality of life can all be the consequences of a whiplash injury.
