Whiplash Accident Injuries        
Pain in the neck, shoulders, or head that occurs after a Personal Injury Accident (Car Accident, Auto Accident, Slip and Fall Accident, etc.) is often called Whiplash.

Patients usually recover from whiplash accident injuries within a few months, however, Whiplash injuries are a serious problem and 30% of whiplash injury patients still have problems one year after the accident.

About Whiplash Accident Injuries
Whiplash Injuries are caused by the damage that occurs when the head is 'whipped' suddenly in one direction and then back in the other direction. The most common cause of whiplash injuries is a rear-end car accident.

Whiplash Injury Pain
Whiplash injury pain can occur immediately following a car accident or other personal injury accident.  It is common, however, to see a delay in the onset of a whiplash patient's symptoms, sometimes for days or weeks following the personal injury accident.

In whiplash injuries, Back and Neck Pain from damage to ligaments, discs, and joints can occur even in low speed car accidents and crashes.

Other Symprtoms of Whiplash Accident Injuries
In addition to neck and back pain, many whiplash patients have symptoms such as headaches, pain in the shoulders, in one or both arms, fatigue, dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, poor concentration or loss of memory, change in emotions, and sleep disturbance.

Recovering from Whiplash Injuries
Most people who suffer neck pain after a whiplash injury will recover by six months, however, about 18% of whiplash injury patients continue to have significant pain two years after the accident. 

Lawsuits and the outcome of whiplash injury treatment
Studies have shown that personal injury litigation does not adversely effect treatment outcome. A 1983 study looked at 61 patients who were treated for whiplash injuries, 41 of whom had personal injury lawsuits. They found no change in symptoms after claims were settled. Ten years later, long after litigation had settled, only 12% had completely recovered, and 48% had pain which interfered with normal daily life.

A 1993 study evaluated patients they had seen previously for legal opinions, not for treatment, 8 years after the initial consultation. They concluded that lawsuits did not influence the timing or degree of recovery.
