Cedar Rapids Whiplash Injury Attorneys
Any vehicular impact has the potential to cause a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian significant bodily harm. Whiplash is an injury that is frequently associated with rear end collisions, and it can develop even from very low speed crashes. Though it has been vilified by some, whiplash is a very real injury that can cause the victim to suffer substantial physical pain and which may interfere with his or her ability to work over a prolonged period of time after the accident.
A whiplash injury may require repeated visits to the doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist to identify and resolve the lingering damage that results from a car accident. In today’s world, that can mean thousands of dollars in medical bills. As the victim of another driver’s negligence, you should not have to pay for these expenses on your own. Contact the Cedar Rapids whiplash injury attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 to learn about your legal rights and options.
The Effects of Whiplash
Though there has been no specific determination of the physiological basis of whiplash, it appears to occur when the spine is stretched violently. This causes the head to “whip” forward and back into place, and the rapid acceleration and deceleration imposes an uncommon force on the tissues and organs involved.
Some of the effects of a whiplash injury include:
- Neck pain and aches
- Back pain and aches
- Shoulder pain
- Inability to rotate the neck
- Tingling sensations in the extremities
- Severe headaches
