Whiplash is one of the most commonly reported injuries in auto accidents. The injury can occur in any type of car accident but occurs frequently in rear-end collisions. Even a slow-speed rear-impact collision in a parking lot or at an intersection can cause a serious neck injury that leaves you unable to work and causes pain even to turn your head.

An experienced Milwaukee whiplash attorney can review the specifics of your car accident and discuss the legal steps available to you.

What is Whiplash Injury?

Whiplash or whiplash-associated disorder describes a range of neck injuries from mild soft tissue strains to more serious ruptures of ligaments and herniated discs. Whiplash injury typically results from fast and forceful back and forth motion of the neck. Rear-end collisions are the most common cause of whiplash injuries.

When a car is struck from behind by another vehicle, the impact causes the heads of those in the front vehicle to snap back and then forward, spraining or straining the neck. Women are more vulnerable to whiplash injuries than men. The violent impact of a crash can also cause damage to cervical vertebrae. Properly positioned head restraints can help prevent whiplash after a car accident or reduce the severity of the injury.

An automobile accident victim who has sustained whiplash may not feel the injury immediately. Anytime you are involved in an accident, you should seek a medical examination, even if you are not experiencing pain. Symptoms of whiplash such as pain and neck stiffness usually develop with 24 hours of the injury, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Neck pain can disrupt your life and impair your ability to work. In addition to pain and stiffness, other symptoms of whiplash injury include loss of range of motion, worsening of pain with movement of the neck, headaches, pain or tenderness in the arms, shoulders or upper back, dizziness, fatigue, ringing in the ears, blurred vision, irritability, trouble concentrating, memory difficulties, sleep disturbances and depression.

A small portion of patients with whiplash injuries develops long-term pain that can last for six months or longer. Chronic pain can make it more difficult for people to enjoy routine, daily activities.

You may be entitled to compensation for your future medical bills for treatment of chronic pain related to your whiplash injury.

How Do I Make a Claim for Whiplash After a Car Accident?

If you have been in an accident causing an injury or significant vehicle damage, you are required to call the police and report the accident. The Milwaukee police, the Wisconsin State Patrol or another law enforcement agency will investigate the accident, interview witnesses, and produce an accident report. That report will provide documentation of your car accident and what happened.

It is also important to have a doctor’s evaluation after an accident. If you have a whiplash injury, a doctor can examine you and identify the location, intensity, and duration of your neck pain. If the doctor suspects a cervical fracture, the doctor may order diagnostic tests. A doctor’s report can provide independent verification of your injuries after an accident. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, you should go to the doctor. In the rush of adrenaline after a collision, you may not notice whiplash symptoms immediately. But you may feel a lot of pain and neck stiffness a day later. A doctor’s report regarding your injuries will be an important piece of evidence to support your position if you make a claim.

If you have to make a whiplash claim against the other driver’s company, it can be difficult to get the insurance company to pay. The insurance company will want a copy of the accident report and will try to determine which driver was at fault before paying a claim. The insurance company also will request to see your medical records.

Insurers view whiplash claims with suspicion, even though many motorists suffer hyper-extended neck injuries or other soft tissue injuries to the neck in collisions. If the facts are in dispute about how the whiplash injury occurred, the insurance company will more than likely deny your claim.

An experienced injury attorney from Gruber Law Offices can gather evidence to support your whiplash claim. Along with our accident investigation, we can estimate your costs for past and future medical expenses, and for lost wages, because of your injured neck. These future costs are important considerations when submitting a claim.

Our attorney will submit a claim to the insurer demanding full compensation and then negotiate aggressively for a whiplash injury settlement. Our legal team includes experienced trial attorneys. If necessary, our trial lawyers will be ready to go to court and prove that you are due compensation for neck injuries you suffered through no fault of your own.

Do I Have Legal Rights to Whiplash Compensation?

If you have sustained a whiplash injury in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s carelessness or inattention, you may have a right to file a whiplash lawsuit and seek compensation for your injuries.

Many times, people are unclear whether they have an injury claim after an accident. A Milwaukee whiplash injury lawyer at Gruber Law Offices can review the specific details of your accident and discuss your rights to pursue a financial recovery.

For example, if you are stopped at a Milwaukee intersection and another driver plowed into your vehicle from behind because the other driver failed to notice the light was red, then you may be entitled under Wisconsin law to seek compensation if you were injured in the collision.

If you have a whiplash claim, you may be entitled to demand compensation for:

  • Medical bills including doctors, hospital visits, prescription medication and physical therapy
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other losses.

Let our knowledgeable attorneys review your accident and discuss your legal options for seeking whiplash injury compensation. Our dedicated team of attorneys, paralegals and investigators are ready to work hard and find justice for you.
