How do I know if I have Whiplash after an accident in Cumming?

whiplash injuryOne of the most common neck injuries suffered by auto accident victims is called “whiplash.” The term whiplash is actually used to describe a wide range of neck injuries that may occur when a person’s head suddenly jerks forward and then snaps back, much like the cracking of a whip. Such a motion of the head is common in auto accidents, especially rear-end accidents. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that approximately 120,000 Americans seek out medical treatment for whiplash injuries on an annual basis, usually following a car crash. Others suffer their whiplash injuries while participating in contact sports or following an episode of physical assault or abuse. If you have suffered a neck injury such as whiplash in an accident or incident that you believe was someone else’s fault, call an experienced Cumming neck injury attorney as soon as possible for a free case evaluation.

In cases of whiplash, a victim sprains or strains the muscles or ligaments in the neck. Such an injury can result in the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches anywhere on the head
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Reduced muscle strength
  • Pain, tingling, or numbness in the arms or shoulders
  • Irregular sleep patterns
  • Vision problems
  • Ringing or buzzing in the ears
  • Irritability or moodiness
  • Memory problems
  • Inability to move your head, neck, or shoulders without pain
  • Slow or abnormal reflexes

If you have been in an auto accident, you should always undergo a medical examination to identify whiplash or other possible injuries. A doctor can order an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan to diagnose neck injuries such as whiplash and prescribe the appropriate course of treatment including muscle relaxers, painkillers, and/or physical therapy. While many cases of whiplash heal after a few weeks or months of treatment, some patients may have chronic and lasting pain. Even a mild case of whiplash can cause serious discomfort and make everyday activities difficult.
