Common Symptoms of Whiplash

Lateral_neck_X-rayYou may sustain a variety of injuries when you are involved in a car accident. Your injuries may range from minor scrapes and bruises to more serious injuries requiring lengthy medical care. One of the most common injuriessustained in a automobile accident is whiplash.

Like a concussion, the symptoms of whiplash may be so common that you ignore them or attribute them to something else. If you have been in a crash and experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Symptoms of Whiplash

Here are some of the common, though minor and often missed symptoms of whiplash:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Shoulder, upper back and upper arm pain
  • Tingling in the arms
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Depression

And here are some of the symptoms that people tend to pay closer attention to:

  • Blurred vision
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Memory problems

No matter which of these symptoms you experience after a car accident in North Carolina, you should seek medical attention. An accurate diagnosis can rule out other injuries that may be contributing to your symptoms. If you have been in a crash, no amount of pain or change in your general health should be considered minor.

The symptoms of whiplash most often occur within 24 hours following an accident. If you experienced a quick forward and backward motion of your neck and head when you were struck, you could very well have whiplash. A doctor can let you know for sure and offer proper treatment options.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. Call our offices today for a free case evaluation.
