Whiplash and Neck Injuries
Trust Our Texas Car Accident Lawyers to Defend Your Rights
One of the most common car accident injuries in Texas involves injuries to the neck, particularly whiplash. Just because such injuries are common doesn't make them minor. If you or a loved one has sustained a neck injury in a motor vehicle accident, you know the pain is real.
Even so, many insurance companies and other individuals may try to downplay the severity of your injuries. If they do, you might have a hard time getting the money you rightfully deserve for your accident.

What is Whiplash?
This type of neck injury involves a person's neck being violently whipped forward, then backward in situations such as car accidents. Whiplash injuries often occur due to rear-end car accidents, especially for the people in the vehicle hit from behind.
Whiplash might seem minor at first but often the pain associated with such injuries can increase several days after an accident. Because neck pain can sometimes be delayed, some people might not think it’s that serious but if such injuries are not treated promptly, other health problems can result.
Seek immediate medical attention if you were in a car accident and you experience any of the following symptoms for whiplash:
- Neck pain
- Severe headaches
- Tingling in arms
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in ears
Other Neck Injuries
Whiplash is just one type of neck injury often caused by auto accidents. Other common car accident neck injuries include:
- Neck sprain - Injuries to the ligaments (connective tissue) in neck.
- Herniated disc - Damage to soft substance between discs in neck, often resulting in severe nerve pain.
- Neck fracture - Broken bones in neck, often the cervical bone.
