Getting in an accident is bad enough, but when it results in a serious whiplash injury it has an even bigger impact on your life. Whiplash can result in significant pain, distress, loss of work, and crippling medical bills. Don’t try and navigate your rights without the help of a professional. Speak with a whiplash lawyer from The Ruth Law Team and get the help you need to determine what to do next.

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. 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.

If you are injured and in need of a whiplash lawyer, contact The Ruth Law Team. We will fight for your rights to recover fair compensation that can allow you to heal after your whiplash injury. If you want to learn more about filing a claim, schedule a free case evaluation or call (888) 783-8378 to speak with one of our whiplash injury lawyers.

They literally had to do so much work on my behalf. I can't thank them enough for turning a very traumatic event in my life into a supportive and nurturing experience.
