Whiplash is most commonly sustained in car accidents, but any event in which the head is pushed beyond its normal range of motion can result in this injury. This type of neck injury is often seen as minor and many cases of whiplash initially respond very well to minimally invasive treatments. Sadly, whiplash is an injury that can continue to create issues even long after an accident and, without a Chicago car accident lawyer on your side, you will not likely receive the compensation you need to truly deal with your injury.
If you have sustained whiplash in an accident, please contact Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd. or call (312) 313-2888 today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced Chicago accident attorney.
Long-Term Whiplash Consequences
Whiplash injuries can create a number of problems that come and go over a long period of time. These may include:
- Limited head and neck mobility
- Muscle spasms
- Concentration problems
- Sleep disturbances
- Jaw tension (temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD)
- Vision problems
- Tinnitus (ringing ears)
These issues can interfere with work, require medical assistance, and result in physical and emotional pain and suffering. You need a Chicago accident attorney on your side who understands these things and will fight to get you the full compensation you deserve.
