There are many misconceptions surrounding whiplash. Some people think that whiplash injuries are minor, and that they will always go away by themselves with time. Others associate whiplash with fraud, sometimes going so far as to accuse victims of faking their injuries. Many of these ideas are based on a misunderstanding of whiplash injuries and the serious effects they can have on their victims.
The term “whiplash” actually refers to a wide variety of neck or back injuries that are caused by a sudden impact. Often, whiplash occurs in occupants of the front car in a rear-end accident. In this scenario, victims’ heads are jerked forward and back, damaging the soft tissues of the neck.
Whiplash can cause headaches, pain, swelling and limited mobility in its victims. Unfortunately, while these symptoms can be quite severe, they can also be very difficult to diagnose.
