Whiplash Recovery Costs

Posted on: March 6, 2017

Whiplash

If you have recently been involved in an accident and incurred whiplash injuries, you are likely entitled to some form of financial remuneration. Such compensation is available to help you return to the same level of health and wellness you enjoyed before the accident. The amount of money awarded in a whiplash injury case depends on the severity of your whiplash injury and any resulting expenses for medical care, loss of work, or other needs.

What is Whiplash?

Whiplash is the most common injury associated with motor vehicle accidents, affecting an average of 83% of victims involved in collisions, and is a frequent cause of chronic disability. Whiplash is a neck injury caused by a forced, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck.

Common signs include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Neck pain/stiffness
  • Low back pain/stiffness
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Pain in or between the shoulder blades
  • Pain or numbness in the arm and/or hand
  • Irritability

How Long to Recover?

While some whiplash victims recover after a few months, some experience chronic pain or other ongoing complications. Speed, angle of impact, posture at the time of the accident and your physical condition are just a few of the factors that contribute to the severity of your whiplash injury and subsequent recovery. In addition, the type and time frame of receiving treatment is also a mitigating factor in determining recovery. Since every person and accident is different, there is no accurate way to predict the length or difficulty of your recovery from a whiplash injury.
