California Whiplash Injury Attorneys

Have You or a Loved One Been Injured In an Accident? We Can Help!

whiplash injury claimsWhen you are injured in an accident, you don’t have to suffer injuries that are visible to the naked eye in order to be hurt. Many injuries, such as whiplash, do not visibly display signs or symptoms. In fact, whiplash injuries may not even display signs in diagnostic imaging.

Whiplash is one of the most common injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents. Since these accidents can occur even in low impact accidents, many victims presume that these injuries are not severe and do not require medical attention. However, whiplash injured are serious and if not properly treated, the symptoms can last for months or even years.

The Los Angeles whiplash attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas are dedicated to protecting the legal rights of accident victims who have suffered whiplash injuries due to the negligent actions of others.

What Is a Whiplash Injury?

Whiplash is a classification of injures caused by sudden distortion of the neck. In most cases, people associate whiplash with a motor vehicle accident where the impact caused the driver’s and/or passenger’s head and neck to violently snap back and forth. However, few know that whiplash injuries do not appear on x-rays, CT scans, MRIs or other types of diagnostic imaging.

Whiplash results from damage to the soft tissues of the neck, making it very difficult for medical professionals to easily discern this damage. Sadly, this means that whiplash is often not diagnosed early and goes untreated. Even when properly diagnosed and treated, whiplash victims often face the difficult task of convincing the insurance companies to honor their claims.

At the Law Offices of Samer Habbas, we believe that if you have been injured due to the negligent actions of another party, you are entitled to compensation – regardless of the type of injury you have suffered. We understand that even if you have suffered only a soft tissue injury, such as whiplash, you deserve to be compensated by the negligent party.

Recognizing the Signs of a Whiplash Injury

The most serious type of whiplash injury generally occurs in accidents where the vehicle is struck from behind, known as a rear-end collision. In a rear-end collision, whiplash is caused when the impact of the accident jolts your head backwards. In such an accident, the natural reaction is for the muscles in front of your neck to contract to compensate for the backward jot of your head.

If you have been involved in an accident and experience any of the following symptoms, you should immediately see a physician to obtain an immediate diagnostic evaluation and medical treatment:

  • Difficulty with equiblibrium or balance
  • Pain in your neck or should
  • Stiffness in your neck area
  • Difficulties with memory or concentration
  • Soar or hoarse throat
  • Back pain
  • Burning or tingling sensation in your shoulders, neck or back
  • Difficult with swallowing

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
