San Jose Whiplash Attorney

Whiplash Injuries in San Jose, California

Commonly sustained in car accidents, whiplash occurs when the soft tissue of the next is stretched beyond its normal range of motion. The soft tissue of the neck includes ligaments, muscles and tendons. All car accidents are incredibly different and consequently so are the injuries.

Most people think that whiplash only occurs in high-speed car accidents, but actually, car accident victims can sustain whiplash injuries going as slow as 15 miles per hour. Whiplash most often occurs in the neck and upper spine. Many people are not even sure that they are suffering from whiplash because symptoms can be delayed for as long as a day.

Seeking Medical Attention for Whiplash

Whiplash doesn't have to be serious, but it should be treated seriously. Any car accident that results in injury, no matter how minor, is serious. If you sustained whiplash after a car accident then you should make sure you undergo an evaluation from a medical professional.

Most commonly, these injuries are treated by rest, anti-inflammatory medications and ice packs. In some more severe cases, physical therapy may be necessary. Whiplash could be a sign of a more serious neck injury such as a sprain, which is why it is so important to seek medical attention after an accident.
