In the wake of motor vehicle accidents, some injuries are immediately apparent. Lacerations, broken bones, severe bruising and other injuries can usually be initially assessed with the naked eye. However, other injuries are not always visible. Internal bleeding, bone bruises, concussions and whiplash injuries can take time to become apparent. It is important to understand that “invisible” injuries are often either just as serious or more serious than visible injuries may be.
If you have suffered whiplash or you suspect that you have suffered whiplash as a result of a car accident, please understand that this is not an insignificant injury. Whiplash can lead to chronic pain in some cases and can impact an individual’s ability to lead a normal and healthy life. If you suspect whiplash, please consult a physician and keep track of medical records related to your injury.
