When Whiplash May Occur
Whiplash is a common injury in traffic accidents. It may be relatively mild in some cases, causing only temporary pain and stiffness. However, it can also trigger chronic pain and associated limitations, including the inability to return to work. Although it is commonly associated with rear-end accidents, whiplash can occur in any type of traffic accident. These injuries result from the head whipping back and forth with force, damaging the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that normally stabilize the head and neck.

Whiplash Can Cause Lasting Pain and Disability
Symptoms of whiplash do not always appear immediately after the accident, although they can. These symptoms include the following:
- Intense pain in the neck, shoulders, and upper back
- Reduced range of motion in the head and neck
- Depression and other mental health and emotional concerns
While some people only experience whiplash symptoms for a few weeks, research published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) shows that more than half still have symptoms one year after their accident. Some of these symptoms are severe and include chronic pain, disability, and the need for ongoing monitoring and care.
There is no standard cure or treatment that works for everyone with whiplash. The following are some of the treatments doctors use for whiplash:
- Over-the-counter painkillers or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Prescription pain medication
- Muscle relaxants
- Physical therapy
- Muscle relaxants
- Neck support, such as a neck brace
- Cervical traction, in severe cases
If you received a whiplash diagnosis following a traffic accident, you should not downplay your injuries. Whiplash may have a reputation as a minor condition, but, at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, we know better. We can help you seek compensation if you qualify. Call (404) 888-8888 now to learn more.

Act Today to Ensure You Meet the Deadline for Legal Action
We most commonly reach a successful conclusion to whiplash accident cases out of court. We present our case to the insurance company and show them proof that their policyholder caused the accident. Then we show them the evidence to back up our demand for a fair payout. From there, we can often negotiate a settlement for our clients.
However, we sometimes need to take the case to court to seek an award for our clients. If this occurs in your case, the deadline to file suit under O.C.G.A §9-3-33 is two years from the accident date. Missing this deadline would likely mean you would lose the right to go to court with your case.
