While all injuries affect people differently, there are a few commonalities with whiplash injuries: they often result from rear-end collisions, the pain is not always immediate, and the injuries can be difficult to prove. A skilled Stamford whiplash injury lawyer from our law firm who is familiar with the elements of a successful whiplash claim can protect your rights as an injured person.

Were You Injured in a Rear-End Collision?
Even a low impact, low speed rear-end car accident can result in a whiplash injury. It is not unusual for a person who has been rear-ended to think he or she is just fine after the accident, only to experience pain a day or two days after the accident. Our skilled personal injury attorneys advise injured clients to seek medical care after the accident as well as when the pain begins. Your claim can be strengthened with documented medical treatment.
Where Does a Whiplash Injury Occur on the Body?
A whiplash injury happens when the head is whipped back and forth. The neck injury can affect the cervical vertebrae from C1 to C7. The injury can affect:
- Cervical discs
Treatment for Whiplash Injury
Physical therapy, chiropractic treatment and therapeutic massage may all be recommended to help improve the symptoms of whiplash. Symptoms can include neck pain and stiffness, shoulder pain and stiffness, dizziness, fatigue, back pain, jaw pain and arm weakness. If you have whiplash, it is very important to seek proper medical care to diagnose your injury and obtain appropriate treatment.
