Phoenix Whiplash Accident Lawyer

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurred when your head violently moved back and forth in a whip-like motion during your accident. This is also called a flexion-extension injury because your neck muscles will have difficulty flexing and extending.

List of Symptoms

If your neck was injured from a whiplash accident, we understand that you may be experiencing pain and discomfort. The type of symptoms you have depended on how violently your neck was jostled. Your symptoms can be categorized as either general or severe.

General Symptoms:

  • Neck Tenderness
  • Neck Pain
  • Neck Swelling
  • Stiff Neck
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Blurred Vision
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Severe Symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Severe neck swelling
  • One-sided or two-sided limb numbness
  • One-sided or two-sided limb weakness
  • Uncontrollable urinating
  • Uncontrollable defecating

We will help you hold the negligent party accountable for your injuries.

Common Causes

Most often, whiplash is caused by:

  • rear-end motor vehicle accident collisions
  • contact sports
  • slip and fall accidents

Treatment

Any required neck movement should be kept to a minimum until the injury sufficiently begins to heal. Most people recover from whiplash in just a few weeks, but some other chronic conditions can be extremely painful and disabling. The RICE method is usually useful in treating whiplash.

  • R – Rest
  • I – Ice
  • C – Compression
  • E – Elevation

Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin or acetaminophen, can also help you with the pain and swelling. Once the swelling and pain begins to diminish, it is recommended that you begin working on strengthening your neck muscles by using various motion exercises. If your case is more severe, physical therapy may be necessary. In addition to these exercises, assisting devices, such as a neck brace, may be needed.
