Kitchener Car Accidents Causing Whiplash


If you were involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and suffered symptoms of whiplash as a result, you may be able to seek financial compensation.

Symptoms of whiplash may result in an accident victim’s inability to perform the basic functions of their job for an extended period of time. Lengthy recovery periods following an accident could lead to an inability to return to the workplace, resulting in significant losses of income. Additionally, in extreme cases, whiplash victims can experience chronic pains that permanently affect their abilities to perform routine activities, leading to a diminished quality of life.

If you suffered from whiplash as the result of an accident, a Kitchener car accident lawyer may be able to provide you with useful assistance and advice.

Common Symptoms of Whiplash

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when a sudden force causes a victim’s head and neck to involuntarily slam to one side before being wrenched back in the other direction. Common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain and stiffness in the neck
  • Limited range of motion
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, and fatigue
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears

In addition to the symptoms above, individuals suffering from whiplash may also experience a lack of concentration, insomnia, and moodiness. In fact, MedicineNet reports that whiplash can lead to chronic psychological problems, like anxiety and depression.

Car Accidents Leading to Whiplash

In Kitchener, car accidents are among the leading causes of whiplash. According to a recent collision report released by the Region of Waterloo’s Transportation and Environmental Services Department, more than 1,000 individuals in the region were injured in a car accident in the span of one year.

When people sustain whiplash injuries as a result of a car accident, they may not notice their symptoms in the moments immediately following the collision. Occasionally, car accident victims may not notice severe pains or other symptoms until a few days after sustaining their injuries.

In the crucial moments following a vehicle collision, seeking immediate medical attention could help properly diagnose any injuries sustained before their conditions worsen.
