Soft Tissue Damage: Whiplash

Nassau County Car Accident Lawyer

Insurance companies seeking to minimize your compensation frequently attempt to discredit serious whiplash injuries. Whiplash is a type of soft tissue damage that can cause neck and back difficulties later on in life, and is exceptionally painful, impacting all of your life. If not properly diagnosed and treated, whiplash can result in loss of neck mobility and chronic pain.

About Whiplash

The most common cause of whiplash is auto accidents, and if not properly diagnosed and treated, it can cause chronic neck and back difficulties. A whiplash injury can result from a sudden "jerking" of the head that causes an overextension of the neck. The muscles and ligaments become damaged when suddenly forced into a position beyond the normal range of motion. Whiplash is not apparent on an X-ray, and insurance companies will attempt to minimize soft tissue damage in order to withhold the compensation to cover your medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages. Our firm has aggressively fought and won the maximum compensation for those who suffer whiplash injuries. If you are suffering the painful consequences of whiplash and need legal representation to help you to pursue compensation, call the firm today so that we can speak with you immediately.
