St Louis Whiplash Injury Attorneys
In the United States alone, over 120,000 people suffer from a whiplash injury every year. Those injuries cost victims over 30 billion dollars annually in medical expenses, lost wages and legal fees. If left untreated, whiplash can quickly become a chronic condition, leading to a lifetime of disabilities, pain and suffering.
What is Whiplash?
While whiplash can occur during any violent accident, the majority of whiplash injuries occur during automobile accidents. Rear end collisions are often the most common cause of a whiplash injury. During an accident, the neck is often forced into extreme positions. In particular, extreme back and forth movement can cause the neck to “whip” forward and backwards. When this happens, damage to the soft tissue, muscles, ligaments and bone structures in the neck can occur and cause whiplash.
Symptoms of Whiplash:
- Neck, shoulder and back pain
- Neck, shoulder and back stiffness
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
