Whiplash and Neck Injuries Attorney
in St. Pete & Pinellas Park, FL
What are whiplash and neck injuries?
Whiplash and neck injuries are common following a vehicle collision, pedestrian accident, workplace injury, or use of a defective product. If you are experiencing symptoms of a neck injury, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. What feels like a minor ache may be a much more serious injury that requires surgical repair and years of physical therapy.
The most common causes of neck sprains are motor vehicle accidents, repetitive motions such as typing, or sporting activities. Although whiplash is associated with car accidents, it can result from any sudden and powerful force that causes the head and neck to quickly move forward and backward. Associated injuries such as herniated discs and pinched nerves are also common following sudden force incidents. With these types of injury, you may not feel the pain immediately and symptoms may go away after a few days or linger for weeks. Delaying treatment could make your injury worse and make it more difficult to pursue a claim for compensation of medical bills.
Depending on how you were injured, compensation may include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
