Brampton Whiplash Injury Lawyer

Whiplash injuries can be catastrophic. Suffering from these severe neck injuries can have serious, long-term effects. Whiplash can occur after a sudden force causes a victim’s head and neck to uncontrollably jolt in one direction and then snap back rapidly to the other, causing muscles and tendon fibers in the neck and upper spine to tear.

According to the Ontario Chiropractic Association, such injuries often occur after car accidents or other motor vehicle accidents. While some people suffering from whiplash choose to treat their symptoms without medical attention, this injury may require professional medical treatments in order to heal properly.

In addition to being painful and demobilizing, whiplash can be very difficult to prove. If you live or work in the Brampton area and are suffering from whiplash due to another party’s negligence, a whiplash injury lawyer may be able to assist you with your claim.

Understanding the Effects of Whiplash

Whiplash damages the soft tissues of the neck. If treated properly, the injury is not considered life-threatening. But without proper and immediate treatment, victims may develop prolonged pains and partial disabilities. Suffering from whiplash could also result in significant financial losses. Some expenses related to whiplash include:

  • Medical care
  • Sick leave
  • Lost productivity
  • Litigation
  • And possibly more

Symptoms of Whiplash

Some of the symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Shoulder pain and fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Pain and stiffness in the neck
  • Headaches
  • Lower back pain

When whiplash is not detected early, victims suffering from this injury can incur prolonged medical complications. Keeping accurate medical records is an important component of initiating a personal injury case.

Seeking Accountability for Whiplash Injuries

If you’re suffering from whiplash as a result of a car accident, a Brampton whiplash injury lawyer can provide you with advice about filing a claim to pursue compensation for your losses.

Oftentimes, whiplash injuries may be the result of rear-end collisions. While it may be simple to prove another driver is at fault for a rear-end collision, it can be very difficult to prove that the injured party is suffering from whiplash.

Despite any pain or extreme discomfort you may be feeling, courts require tangible proof of your injuries before awarding compensation. Proving the veracity of your injuries may require testimony from an expert witness, such as a physician, who can illustrate the severity of your injury as a result of your accident to the court.

How to File a Whiplash Injury Claim in Ontario

Whiplash injuries are not externally visible, but they cause severe discomfort that can disrupt a victim’s normal routine. Whiplash symptoms do not always manifest themselves immediately following an accident. In fact, it could take weeks or even months after suffering trauma for symptoms to materialize. Our body’s adrenaline can temporarily protect us from feeling pain, which may result in delayed whiplash-related pain. If you’ve been involved in an accident and did not require immediate medical attention, it is important to seek medical care as soon as you start to feel symptoms of whiplash.

Supporting a whiplash injury claim requires medical records, which makes it crucial to seek immediate medical attention after an accident, or when symptoms begin to appear. Documenting all medical treatments received and expenses incurred as a result can be useful for proving your claim.

If you suffered whiplash as a result of a car accident, a Brampton personal injury lawyer may be able to help you assemble evidence that may prove essential for collecting accident benefits. A lawyer can help document your accident by:

  • Obtaining the contact information for witnesses
  • Taking photos of the accident scene and your injuries
  • Requesting a copy of the accident report
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • And possibly more

If your whiplash occurred because of the negligent behaviour of another individual, you may have a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. After the accident occurs, it is important to notify the insurance company as soon as possible. Doing so can prevent unnecessary delays in the claims process.
