One of the more common types of auto accident injuries is whiplash. This injury is sustained to the neck area when the body is forced into an abrupt back and forth motion. It is a serious injury that can significantly reduce the quality of life for an individual. A neck brace might have to be worn, and the individual might be left unable to work for a significant period of time.
Our Florida personal injury attorneys are capable for working on your whiplash case to secure the maximum settlement amount possible for your injuries. We work hard on every case that comes through our doors to do the very best for our clients. In a whiplash case it is important to document your injury. Therefore, ask your doctor to provide documentation, and keep it in a safe place.
It is a common misconception that for a whiplash injury to occur the vehicle must have been traveling at high speed. However, in reality whiplash related injuries can occur in low speed collisions. The number of factors that determine if a whiplash injury will occur include:
- The position of the person when the incident occurs
- Angle of the collision
- The seating height of the individual
- Type of vehicle – some are safer than others
Furthermore, some insurance companies will try to argue that whiplash injuries are not that serious, because by nature they are soft tissue injuries. As a result they might only be willing to pay a settlement amount that is a fraction of what you feel it should be. Fortunately, our Florida whiplash attorneys know how to argue the case so that the severity of the injuries is evident.
