Whiplash is a serious injury that can occur after a car accident. This injury occurs when muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the neck are unexpectedly contracted due to a powerful force. This results in neck strain and sprains, which is commonly called whiplash. Unfortunately, this term is not favored anymore in the legal field as it is difficult to measure the severity and existence of such an injury. The symptoms of the injury, however, can be painful and consist of neck and shoulder pain, dizziness, headaches, stiffness, and sometimes memory and sleep disturbances. Make sure you seek medical care after a car accident especially if you are experiencing some or all of these symptoms.
