Whiplash injuries and neck injuries are among the most common injuries a person can sustain when involved in an automobile accident. A whiplash injury is caused by the sudden jerking of the neck and head either backwards, forwards or sideways as a result of a sudden movement and is commonly caused by automobile accidents.
A whiplash injury can include injury to intervertebral joints, discs, and ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots. Often, the pain and discomfort from a whiplash injury may not be felt until a few days after the accident.
If you have been injured in a Florida car accident, a whiplash lawyer with Bernheim & Dolinsky, LLC is here to help you determine whether you have a whiplash case.
