Have you recently been hit in a car accident and are experiencing neck pain? You may be suffering from whiplash, a common injury associated with car accident impact. “How do I know if I have whiplash?” and “What should I do now?” may be some of the questions you have after a car accident. Here are the most common symptoms of whiplash that can help you determine if you have whiplash and need medical attention:
- Neck stiffness
- Neck pain
- Neck aches that do not subside
- Decreased neck mobility
- Neck and shoulders being tender to the touch
- Trouble sleeping
- Neck spasms
Whiplash is a serious injury that takes time and proper medical care to heal. If you have been hit in a car accident and are suffering from these symptoms, you need a personal injury attorney who can help you get the proper medical attention you need, and in many cases, without paying out of pocket for medical expenses. Whiplash may not always be noticeable immediately upon impact, as it may take a few days before you start experiencing pain.
