Car Accident Injury Lawyer Serving Bakersfield
Whiplash is one of the most common
injuries associated with
car accidents. A car accident will typically involve a sudden impact. This impact may cause a driver or passenger's head to move suddenly in a side-to-side or forward-and-back motion, causing injury to the neck. The tendons, nerves or muscles in the neck may be come damaged when this occurs, leading to stiffness, weakness and pain. The impact that whiplash may have on a car accident victim will vary depending on the extent of injury. In some cases, pain or stiffness may lead only to minor discomfort, but in severe cases the victim may have a severely limited range of motion, be in severe pain and may have shooting pains through the neck and shoulders. Technical terms for whiplash may include: cervical sprain, hyperextension injury, cervical strain, or acceleration flexion-extension neck injury.
