Whiplash is one of the most common injuries reported on insurance claims in the United States, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
If you suffer from whiplash due to a car accident in Utah, Osmond Law can help you receive compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, and other related expenses.
What is Whiplash Injury?
Also called cervical strain or cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) syndrome, whiplash is a type of neck and back injury that takes weeks, sometimes months, to heal. It affects the tendons, ligaments, and surrounding tissues in your neck.
The sudden movement of the head and neck can cause whiplash. Rear-end collisions tend to result in this type of injury.
Because symptoms of pain and stiffness can take days to appear, many people dismiss the injury as one that should not be taken seriously. But it can be extremely painful and can prevent you from enjoying life.
