Whiplash

Whiplash is common injury suffered in car accidents.  Human bodies are small and delicate compared to the large, heavy machines we use for automobiles.  The human head is relatively heavy compared to the neck and a sudden impact provides no time to brace oneself against the forceful head movement sustained in a violent or sudden crash.whiplash lawyer

Whiplash often occurs in crashes at slower speed, when cars are going as slow as 8-12 mph.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data shows that crashes at these speeds are actually the most common on our roadways.  That means that whiplash is a far more common injury that many suspect.

According to the Spine Research Institute, more than 3 million Americans suffer whiplash each year.  About 10% of those suffer some sort of permanent disability.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash a term used to describe the snapping motion sustained by a neck when an impact causes the head to be moved quickly in the opposite direction of the impact.  This is also known as cervical acceleration/deceleration trauma or syndrome (CAD).  The sudden and sharp movement can cause damage to the joints of the neck as well as to nerves, muscles, and discs.  In some extreme cases the brain can be bruised as well.  Symptoms of these injuries include dizziness, headache, and pain in the body or arms.  Signs of a brain injury include blurred vision, tinnitus, nausea, vertigo, and numbness.

These injuries can lead to long-term pain and disability.  A whiplash lawyer can help you recover compensation for the injuries you sustain as the result of a violent or sudden collision.

What Our Clients Say

“I am the owner of an insurance agency. I was seriously injured in an automobile accident. As you can imagine being in the insurance industry, I know many law firms. For my personal case, I wanted the very best law firm. I knew of the sterling reputation of the Rothenberg Law Firm for their competence, integrity and ability to get me all the compensation that I sought and needed. My high expectations were more than fulfilled. During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined. This is a super law firm and I unequivocally recommend them to everyone that has been injured.”
