Whiplash Injuries & Other Damages

One of the most common injuries caused in a rear-end accident is also one of the most serious: whiplash. When a person’s neck is jerked backwards and forwards again in a rapid motion, it can cause severe strain to the spinal column, nerves, and muscles in the neck, resulting in whiplash. Even a slow speed collision can cause whiplash. It most often afflicts the people in the vehicle struck from behind, as this impact will cause an abrupt shift in inertia, tossing their heads backwards.

Symptoms of whiplash, which can linger or be permanent, may include:

  • Chronic pain in neck, back, and shoulders
  • Whole body dizziness
  • Difficulty paying attention or focusing on tasks
  • Insomnia or over-sleeping
  • Tingling in extremities
  • Stiffness in neck

To treat whiplash, extensive medical care may be necessary. Extreme cases of whiplash may need numerous physical therapy or rehabilitation sessions. The cost of these treatments can add up, especially if they are also paired with prescription medications or neck surgeries. Call (760) 742-5221 to talk to our Carlsbad personal injury lawyers to discuss how you can fight for compensation that helps pay for all of your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, emotional suffering, and more.

How Liability Can Shift in a Rear-End Accident

With a cursory glance, it might seem obvious or logical to put all the liability for a rear-end accident on the driver that struck the car in front. However, there are ways that liability can be placed on the driver in the front-vehicle driver. If it can be argued that the driver in the front vehicle was braking erratically, had broken brake lights, turned sharply without warning, or even reversed straight backwards into the other driver, he or she could become liable for the majority or all of the damages. Our car accident attorneys in Carlsbad are committed to doing everything in our power to ensure as little of the liability as possible is put onto you, allowing you to collect a maximized amount of compensation.
