Whiplash is a specific type of injury that can be caused by a variety of activities. However, it is most commonly linked to vehicle accidents. Whiplash injuries are particularly dangerous because they involve damage to the neck. They can cause radiating pain down into the shoulders and lower body. Despite improved safety measures in modern vehicles, whiplash injuries are still a relatively common occurrence. In fact, about 3 million whiplash injuries occur per year. Roughly half of all whiplash victims suffer chronic pain from their injury, and about 1 in 10 are considered to be disabled due to their pain. Speak with a whiplash injury attorney who can provide you with invaluable legal guidance and file a personal injury claim on your behalf.
