Whiplash Injury Attorneys in South Carolina

One of the most common types of injuries in a rear-end accident is a whiplash injury. This is often referred to as a soft-tissue injury because bones are not broken. However, even without the trauma of a broken bone, a strain on the head and neck can cause tremendous pain and neurological damage for months or years, and some neurological damage may be permanent. Some whiplash injuries are often accompanied by other injuries such as a back injury or concussion. The term whiplash describes the motion of the head and neck being moved suddenly forward and backward, like a whip. Muscles and ligaments are extended beyond their normal range, causing a strain. This can be extremely painful and limit victims’ ability to move, work, and enjoy all aspects of life. 

Symptoms of a Car Accident Whiplash Injury 

The most common symptoms of a whiplash injury are pain, soreness and stiffness,  sometimes accompanied by neurological symptoms such as dizziness, blurred vision, and headaches. This may not be immediately felt following an accident, and it is common for car accident victims to feel tremendous soreness upon waking up the day after an accident. Insurance companies may try to downplay whiplash injuries, especially when the strain and injury cannot be seen in an X-ray or MRI. At Jeffcoat Injury and Car Accident Lawyers, we work with whiplash experts to establish the severity of these injuries and how much they affect our clients. Having handled so many of these cases, we know how much a whiplash injury can affect a crash victim.
