What are the most common symptoms of whiplash?

It goes without saying that any type of motor vehicle accident can cause serious injury. Unfortunately, an accident can also lead to death.

One of the most common car accident injuries is whiplash. This occurs when one vehicle hits another from behind. In this case, the person or people in the lead vehicle are prone to this injury.

If you have any reason to believe that you've suffered a neck injury in a car accident, don't want to receive treatment. Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with whiplash:

-- Neck pain

-- Neck stiffness

-- Worsening of the pain when you attempt to move

-- Minimized range of motion in the neck

-- Headaches that typically originate at the base of the skull

-- Numbness or tingling in the arms

-- Dizziness

-- Fatigue

As you can see, all of these symptoms can cause both pain and discomfort. However, there are symptoms even more serious than these.

-- Blurred vision

-- Irritability

-- Sleep difficulties

-- Ringing in the ears

-- Memory issues

-- Depression

All of these symptoms can change your life in many ways. This is why it's so important to receive medical treatment if you believe you've suffered whiplash in an accident.

Once diagnosed, you can work with your medical team to ensure that you receive the proper treatment in the days, weeks and months to come.

Due to the fact that whiplash can have long-lasting side effects, many people who suffer the injury in a car accident consider what they can do to obtain compensation from the negligent party.
