Whiplash common after Reno crash; injury known by what symptoms?

After a Reno car accident, whiplash is a common complaint. But, what exactly is whiplash? This term is given to pain that a person experiences from a jolting type of injury. For example, whiplash is most commonly associated with motor vehicle accidents.

Contrary to popular belief, high-speed car accidents are not a pre-requisite for whiplash injuries. Whiplash is a common soft-tissue injury that affects the neck, head and spine. Also, the symptoms and injuries associated with whiplash do not always make themselves known right away. Hours or days after a car accident, an accident victim can suffer from tightness and stiffness in the neck, serious neck pain, dizziness, headaches, problems with balance and equilibrium, back pain, memory problems or even difficulty concentrating.

Because of the injuries associated with whiplash after a car accident, there are often significant medical expenses associated with such an injury. Emergency medical treatment after a car accident, rehabilitation costs and loss of wages are all common expenses that occur after a car accident. When someone was negligent in a crash that caused such injuries, they should be held responsible for their actions.

Whether a person is suffering from whiplash symptoms or other injuries related to a car accident, there are legal options available. Car accident injuries are serious and need to be treated as such. Whiplash can occur immediately following or even days after a car accident has occurred. This is why it is important for accident victims to monitor their health in the immediate days surrounding a crash in order to determine if they are in fact injured.
