Whiplash

Whiplash is a condition resulting from overextension of the neck, characterized by extreme neck and back pain. Any number of activities can cause whiplash; however, certain activities may be more likely to cause whiplash than others. Because whiplash is not a medical term, it may be diagnosed by a doctor as a cervical sprain, cervical strain, or hyperextension injury.

If you are suffering from whiplash because of another party’s negligence, you may have the right to receive compensation. Contact an experienced Cincinnati personal injury lawyer   at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 to discuss the details of your case.

Causes of Whiplash

The most common cause of whiplash is automobile accidents; however, it can be caused by any number of activities. Some other common causes for whiplash are:

  • Contact sports
  • Falling objects
  • Diving into water
  • Assault
  • Chronic neck strain

Whiplash Treatment

Symptoms of whiplash may vary from mild to severe; however, you will likely experience some degree of neck and back pain. Depending on what symptoms you are experiencing, treatments may vary as well. Within the first 24 hours of the accident, rest and make an appointment with your doctor. Doctors may prescribe pain medication, certain exercises, or refer you to a chiropractor for further treatment.
