Whiplash Resulting from Truck Accidents

Many truck accident result in serious, even fatal injuries. However, even when a commercial truck accident only causes relatively minor injuries, the victims still face hardships as a result of these injuries. Just because a victim is not left with a permanent disability does not mean that they do not deserve to recover for their injury and losses. One common injury for which victims often seek recover is whiplash. An experienced Corinth truck accident lawyer can help whiplash victims receive proper compensation.

“Whiplash” is not actually a medical term, but is instead a term commonly used to refer to one of a wide range of neck or head injuries. Whiplash injuries occur when the head suddenly snaps forward or backward on the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Though whiplash is most common in rear-end collisions, it can result from almost any type of crash.

Though most people do not consider whiplash to be a particularly serious injury, it can cause long-term problems and complications for victims. Some common whiplash symptoms can include the following:

  • Chronic headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Neck pain and/or stiffness

  • Shoulder pain

  • Weakness in the arms

  • Pins and needles sensations or numbness in the arms

  • Nausea

Whiplash may persist for long periods of time and may cause victims to miss work and require long-term physical therapy. Losing income while incurring costly medical bills can be stressful for anyone and truck accident victims deserve proper compensation for their losses.
