At our Maryland auto accident law firm one of the most typical types of traffic accident cases we see are rear end collisions as well as side impact crashes. These are also referred to as T-Bone accidents and occur most frequently at intersections. A very common type of neck injury sustained in many types of accidents is whiplash. This is especially true with rear end auto accidents at both low and high speeds.
Whiplash is actually a non-medical term that is typically used to describe a range of injuries to the neck area. Whiplash injuries are caused by or related to a sudden distortion and extension of the neck and its surrounding structures.
If you, a family member or a loved one have been injured in an accident and sustained a whiplash injury it is in your best interest to consult with a Whiplash Injury Lawyer serving all of Maryland. Please call or email a Maryland Whiplash Injury Lawyer by clicking here.
The Elkton neck injury lawyers at Bowers, Hassan & Herndon have many years’ experience handling all auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, trucking accidents and motorcycle accident cases in throughout the Elkton, Bel Air, Towson, Baltimore, Ocean City & Salisbury, MD areas.
As discussed above, the most commonly seen type of accident resulting in whiplash is a car accident, in particular a rear end collision. This is because of the mechanics and inertia exerted upon impact. Other, less common types of accidents that can induce whiplash are sports injuries such as sporting and skiing accidents, slips and falls, being assaulted and amusement park ride accidents. Any sudden and violent movement or accident that strains the neck with sufficient force from behind can result in whiplash.
With whiplash cases you may not feel the effects of a whiplash injury for several days after the accident. Although this is not always the case and sometimes the injury, and pain, is immediate. Symptoms normally include neck pain, back pain, stiffness and headaches. One can also feel numbness and tingling in the extremities in addition to headaches. The neck, upper back and mid-back are the areas most impacted by whiplash. The numbness and tingling (pins and needles) in your upper extremities could be indicative of Cervical Spine (C-Spine) injury such as bulging, slipped or herniated discs.
