Even a minor crash could open you up to the wrath of whiplash

When it comes to being involved in a collision, what seems like a minor incident could still have a substantial impact on your plans for the day. Arranging alternative travel plans while mulling over the costs off vehicle repair could be enough to darken your mood, even if you feel you left the crash unscathed.

Unfortunately, even a lesser collision could pose a threat to your well-being, and the injuries you suffer in the crash might not appear for hours or even days to come. Should you begin to experience pain or numbness in the neck or extremities, you could be suffering from a whiplash injury.

Whiplash symptoms and concerns

Whiplash injuries can present with a variety of symptoms, each of which could prove exceedingly painful. Similar injuries could cause major health concerns if left untreated, some of which may include:

  • Chronic pain and suffering: Although symptoms of whiplash injuries may take time to appear, the pain and suffering they might bring could persist for months or years after the crash.
  • Loss of mobility: Whiplash injuries can also lead to issues with stiffness and soreness, and the impact such an injury could have on your mobility could affect your ability to perform everyday tasks.
  • Dizziness and loss of balance: Similar injuries could also open you up to issues with constant dizziness or other major health concerns such as vertigo.
  • Spinal concerns and headaches: If left untreated, whiplash injuries could also lead to spinal misalignment and degenerative disc disease or even chronic headaches.

When seeking treatment for a whiplash injury, timing may be of the essence. Should your injuries come as the result of another driver's negligent actions, it may also be in your best interests to seek guidance on your available legal avenues as soon as possible.

When a collision occurs

Suffering severe injuries in a collision can be a scary and traumatic experience, and the extensive costs of medical care could leave you in a substantial financial bind. If another party is at fault in the crash, you may wish to exercise your right to pursue restitution, but navigating the civil justice system can be a complex process.

Fortunately, you don't have to go through this alone. By speaking with someone who is knowledgeable in Texas state laws pertaining to your situation, you could find yourself in a much better position to pursue the restitution you deserve through a personal injury claim.
