Do You Have Whiplash After Being Rear-Ended by Another Vehicle?

You are not likely to hear a doctor refer to a neck injury as "whiplash," but it's still one of the most common terms accident victims use to label the soft tissue damage that can cause great pain and limit one's ability to handle daily functions.

The attorneys at Sokol & Foster, P.C., take most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a recovery for you.

Neck Injury? Get Help From a Clackamas County Attorney.

Whiplash is frequently associated with rear-end car accidents, where the occupants of the front vehicle are unprepared for impact. However, whiplash injuries result from many other types of incidents, including intentional assaults that produce head trauma (a hard shove from behind, for example, or slip-and-fall accidents in stores or homes).

An injured person may not feel the symptoms of soft tissue injuries immediately after the accident. If you experience any of the following symptoms after being involved in an accident, it is wise to consult with a medical specialist:

  • Tightness in the neck or serious neck pain
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Problems with balance or equilibrium
  • Back pain
  • Memory problems and difficulty concentrating

These injuries can be severely debilitating. If you were hurt in an accident that was the result of someone else's negligence, it's also important to contact an experienced and aggressive personal injury lawyer who can advocate on your behalf. You should not have to shoulder the burden of medical expenses, property damage, lost wages and long-term rehabilitative needs.
