At Penner Law Firm, our Connecticut car accident lawyers know how painful and devastating a wreck can be. Injuries are sadly common. One of the maladies we see most frequently is whiplash.
Whiplash is often the subject of mockery from people who have never been in a car accident and believe victims are just litigious opportunists out for quick cash. Our car accident lawyers know that whiplash is a real and serious medical condition.
Whiplash is usually caused by a sudden stop, often as part of a rear end collision. Your head "whips" forward, then quickly slams back. This violent, unfamiliar motion puts a tremendous strain on your spine and the muscles and ligaments of your neck.
Symptoms of whiplash include:
Pain or tenderness in the neck
Restricted range of motion
Treating whiplash can require multiple procedures and visits to medical practitioners. As such, the medical bills from a whiplash injury can quickly skyrocket.
Penner Law Firm's Connecticut car accident lawyers are committed to helping you pursue justice and compensation if you've suffered whiplash in a car accident caused by another's negligence.
