Whiplash is an umbrella term for a number of different injuries that result when a person’s neck is violently shaken in an accident. These types of injuries most often occur in a rear-end collision. However, a whiplash injury can happen in other types of accidents as well. These types of injuries can be difficult to diagnose and symptoms may not appear until days or weeks after an accident. That is why it is important to seek medical treatment right away and to speak with experienced legal counsel to determine whether you are entitled to compensation.
At The Levine Law Firm, our Austin lawyer for whiplash injuries has more than 20 years of experience handling personal injury cases throughout Central Texas. Founding attorney Jeremy Levine understands the pain and frustration that can come with these types of injuries. We will work closely with you not only to ensure that you understand your legal options, but also to help you get the medical treatment you need.
A Wide Range Of Injuries Can Result From Whiplash Trauma
Whiplash is not a medical diagnosis. Rather, it is a word that is used when a person’s neck suddenly and violently “snaps” forward in an accident. This type of motion can result in a wide range of injuries, including:
- Brain injuries
- Neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Chronic headaches
Just because you may not experience symptoms until days or weeks after an accident does not mean that you weren’t injured in the accident. A whiplash injury is not as easy to diagnose as a broken bone. That is why it is important to seek medical help as soon as possible after an accident, even if you feel fine at the time.
If your health care provider cannot find anything wrong, we can help you set up an appointment with a different doctor to help get to the bottom of your injury. We can handle your legal issues so you can focus all of your attention on getting better.
