What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a neck injury caused by forceful and rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, similar to the cracking of a whip. Whiplash injuries also are known as neck strains or soft tissue injuries, since they involve damage to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles in the neck.

Whiplash injuries commonly occur in motor vehicle accidents, front-impact or rear-end accident in particular. They can also result from falls, sports accidents, or other types of accidents or trauma.

Even in what appears to be a minor car accident, whiplash injury is a possibility. The impact of another motor vehicle, even at slower speeds, can cause a serious whiplash injury that can have lasting consequences for the affected individual.

Signs and Symptoms of Whiplash Injury

Signs and symptoms of whiplash may be immediate, or they may develop within days of the injury or incident. They may include:

  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Neck pain made worse with neck movement
  • Loss of range of motion in the neck
  • Headaches, fatigue, or dizziness
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms
  • Tenderness or pain in the shoulder, arms, or upper back
  • Blurred vision
  • Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty concentrating or memory problems
  • Irritability or depression
  • Problems sleeping

Whatever caused your whiplash injury can cause other serious injuries, such as a concussion, or traumatic brain injury. It’s essential that you see a doctor right away if you’ve been injured in an accident. 

To diagnose whiplash, your doctor will give you a thorough physical exam. You may also undergo X-rays, CT scans or other tests to get the full scope of your condition.

Recovery and Long-Term Effects of Whiplash

After your doctor has diagnosed you with whiplash, you can begin recovery. Many people who suffer from whiplash recover within a few weeks. Recovery often includes pain medication, icing or applying heat to your neck to reduce swelling, or using a neck brace for support. Chiropractic care, massage therapy and physical therapy are other possible treatments.

However, others may experience chronic neck pain and other long-term complications from a whiplash injury. The following symptoms and risk factors may make you more susceptible to chronic neck pain down the road:

  • Severe neck pain
  • More limited range of motion
  • Pain that has spread to the arms
  • Experiencing whiplash before
  • Old age
  • Existing neck pain or low back pain

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.

Joni Peitrowski

Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.

Aimee McCann

I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!

Ryan M.

After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.

Phyllis Priem

After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.

It is hard to predict how each person who suffers from a whiplash injury may recover. It’s also difficult to know how severe your whiplash injury is immediately following the accident that caused it. That’s why it is essential that you seek medical treatment as quickly as possible following your accident, even if you initially do not feel as if you have been injured. 

If you wait until whiplash symptoms present themselves a few days after your accident, your condition may worsen. You may not get the immediate treatment you need for other hidden injuries, such as spinal cord injuries or concussion. 

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident that caused whiplash, the Boller & Vaughan team is here to help. We take care of you from a legal perspective, so that you can concentrate on healing from your whiplash injuries and recovering from the financial impact of the accident. 

You can speak to someone on our team by calling our Madison, Wisconsin office at 608-268-0268. You may also fill out an online contact form to schedule a FREE initial consultation and follow the Boller & Vaughan Facebook page for more legal resources.
