New York Whiplash Attorneys
Even at relatively low speeds, car accidents can generate significant forces that can seriously harm motorists involved. When these forces cause a driver’s head and neck to be thrown sharply in a particular direction during the accident, the jolt can cause very serious damage to that driver’s head and neck. These injuries are commonly known as whiplash injuries. If another person’s negligence on the road causes a whiplash injury, the injured individual may be entitled to file for financial compensation for the suffering they have had to endure.
If you or someone you love has sustained a whiplash injury on the road due to someone else’s dangerous actions, we may be able help you seek damages through a personal injury claim.

Treatment Costs for Whiplash
Whiplash injuries are seen particularly in motor vehicle accidents, especially if a person is struck from behind. These injuries can cause pain throughout the neck and shoulders and may accompany minor to severe head trauma. Treatments for whiplash often include the following:
- Physical therapy and mobility exercises
- Cervical traction
- Pain medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- The use of a cervical collar
These treatments, in addition to any emergency care expenses, may be covered through an injury lawsuit if an injured individual successfully files against the motorist responsible for causing the accident.
A whiplash injury may leave you and your household with significant medical bills, out-of-pocket costs, and even lost wages due to recovery. Fortunately, with the support of a qualified attorney and a successful lawsuit, you may be able to claim compensation for most, if not all, of these expenses.
