What are the symptoms of whiplash?

Many people have heard of whiplash, but most have never experienced this potentially painful injury.

Whiplash often impacts people who are riding in a vehicle that is struck from behind by another. When this happens, their neck strains, thus leading to the injury.

Some of the most common symptoms associated with whiplash include:

-- Pain and tightness in the neck, often accompanied by decreased range of motion.

-- Pain when moving your head from side to side, especially when attempting to look behind you.

-- Headaches, typically at the base of the skull.

-- Tender to the touch.

In many cases, pain associated with whiplash is immediate. However, this doesn't always hold true. There are also situations in which it takes several hours, or even days, for the pain and discomfort to set in.

If you have reason to believe you've suffered a whiplash injury, don't wait to seek medical attention. Even if you aren't experiencing an extreme amount of pain, you should still visit a medical professional to ensure that you have a treatment schedule in place moving forward.

Whiplash is a common injury as the result of a rear end motor vehicle accident. If you find yourself with this injury, it won't be long before you realize that it could turn your life upside down both now and in the future.

Due to the potential long term impact of whiplash, don't hesitate to learn more about your legal rights. Since you may have to deal with the symptoms for the rest of your life, you may be entitled to compensation.
