Florida Whiplash Injuries

Every day, there is a Florida driver injured in a car crash. Frequently, these traffic collisions result in serious injuries. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries caused by automobile accidents. Even though most people have heard the term, “whiplash,” the actual definition and symptoms are not widely known.

A whiplash injury is defined as a ““hyperextension (over-extension) injury to the neck, often the result of being struck from behind, as by a fast-moving vehicle in a car accident.” This type of injury is not considered life threatening, but it can still be painful and prevent the injured victim from returning to normal daily activities, including work.

Common symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, neck stiffness, neck swelling, fatigue, headache, back pain, dizziness, muscle spasms, arm pain and jaw pain. Since the symptoms can vary, it is crucial that an accident victim seek medical attention immediately following an auto accident.

For those involved in car crashes, the question that most often comes to mind is – Can I be compensated for my injuries caused by an auto accident? If the auto accident was the result of another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. The amount of money that can be recovered for damages depends on the severity of the injury and damage caused by the auto accident. David Benenfeld, an auto accident attorney, has extensive experience in representing accident victims. Contact the law office to review your case.
