Whiplash


If the force of impact during a traumatic accident causes a person’s heads to involuntarily thrust in one direction before being snapped back in the other, they may experience a range of Whiplash-Associated Disorders. This variety of neck injuries involves damage to the neck’s soft tissues, which can cause varying degrees of severe pain.

Whiplash often occurs as the result of motor vehicle collisions. Its symptoms can take years to develop and might lead to prolonged pain and other side effects. Many car accident victims who suffer from whiplash report continuing to experience symptoms two years after their collisions. 

If you were involved in an accident and sustained whiplash, our Ontario personal injury lawyers may be able to provide you with assistance. To learn more, call 1-800-JUSTICE and schedule a free initial consultation.

Common Symptoms of Whiplash

Typically, after sustaining whiplash in a motor vehicle collisions, injured accident survivors develop a range of symptoms, which commonly include:

  • Stiffness in the back and neck
  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in extremities (arms, hands, legs, and feet)
  • Jaw pains
  • Mood swings, irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea 
  • Blurred vision
  • Vertigo
  • And more

Most people who’ve sustained whiplash injuries as the result of a car accident experience serious neck pains between two hours to two days after their collision. This occurs when neck muscles tighten in order to respond to tears or ligament damage. Victims may experience a limited range of motion in the neck in addition to intense pains.

Many people suffering from whiplash also report experiencing headaches to various degrees of severity, duration, and localization. Often, headaches caused by whiplash can be felt behind the eyes. Accident survivors who have sustained whiplash may also suffer from shoulder pains, radiating down from their necks into their shoulder blades, and torn muscles that can cause burning, tingling, or prickling sensations.

The Long-Term Consequences of Whiplash 

Often the result of side-impact or rear-end car accidents, whiplash can have a dramatic effect on a person’s life. Even if the collision didn’t cause much vehicle damage or appear to be that severe at first, the velocity of a vehicle’s impact and the movement of individual muscles may cause serious health problems down the road, both physical and mental. If these medical issues affect a person’s ability to earn a living, whiplash from a car accident can lead to significant financial losses. 

As a result of their physical symptoms, many injured accident survivors also develop chronic mental health issues. In fact, symptoms of depression are overwhelmingly common in people suffering from whiplash, even for a short period of time.
