"Developing our capacity for compassion makes it possible for us to help others in a more skillful and effective way." - Joan Halifax
Whiplash is a term used to describe injury to the neck that occurs when the head is suddenly thrown forward and then backward. The muscles, ligaments, nerves or vertebrae may be seriously damaged by this sharp motion, causing a number of side effects, including: headaches, stiffness in the neck, neck pain, dizziness, loss of mobility in the neck, fatigue, and more. A victim may suffer psychological side effects as well, such as poor concentration, irritability and memory loss.
If someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing was the cause of your whiplash injuries, you may have the right to take legal action against that party in order to recover the financial compensation you need for: medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly more.
Whether you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or in any other related incident, if you have suffered whiplash injury you may be facing a painful and long recovery.
