Experienced California Whiplash Injury Attorneys
Everyone knows that whiplash is a classification of injuries caused by sudden distortion of the neck. In most cases, people associate whiplash with an auto accident where the impact causes a driver’s and/or passenger’s head and neck to snap back and forth violently. However, few know that whiplash injuries do not appear on x-rays, CT scans, MRIs and other types of diagnostic imaging. Whiplash results from damage to the soft tissues of the neck, and as previously mentioned, medical professionals cannot easily discern this damage. Sadly, this means that whiplash is often not diagnosed early and goes untreated. When properly diagnosed and treated, whiplash victims often have a very difficult time convincing insurance companies to honor their claims. If you’re a California resident having difficulty getting your insurance company to pay a claim, California whiplash injury lawyer Samer Habbas may be able to help.

Although whiplash may be difficult to diagnose, whiplash victims don’t need expensive diagnostic equipment to know that they have suffered a very serious and debilitating injury. They are reminded of whiplash every time they move, and even simple tasks can become a very painful and difficult ordeal. When the muscles, ligaments and other soft tissues of the neck have been violently shaken and torn, it results in the victim having very limited range of motion due to swelling in the beginning, which then becomes permanent due to the build up of scar tissue over time. Whiplash also results in chronic, debilitating pain that can last a lifetime. Although this can be attenuated somewhat with medication, painkillers have their own debilitating effects, and the pain combined with powerful pharmaceuticals make it very hard for whiplash victims to find employment.
