WHIPLASH INJURIES FOLLOWING AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS
Many people who are involved in auto accidents may suffer whiplash injuries, even if they are wearing their seatbelt. This is also the most common type of injury resulting from an auto accident. Even if the accident occurs at a low rate of speed, whiplash may occur. The amount of physical damage to the vehicle is not necessarily related to the whiplash injury.
Whiplash is the general term most often used to describe pain in the neck occurring after some kind of injury to the soft tissue. The muscles, ligaments, and tendons are all affected when force causes the neck to move beyond its normal range of motion.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury in an auto accident, you should contact an experienced Florida auto accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.
