Whiplash injuries in Charlotte, NC

Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when your head moves suddenly backward and then forward. It is called whiplash because the motion is similar to the cracking of a whip. The sudden movement pushes your neck muscles and ligaments beyond the normal range of motion and causes excessive strain in the cervical facet joints.

Using their more than 50 years’ combined experience, our Charlotte car accident attorney and staff help victims recover compensation for a broad range of whiplash injuries caused by accidents resulting from the negligence of others. Whiplash injuries range from mild, with the injured victim recovering within a few weeks, to severe, resulting in chronic pain and suffering for up to two years. Other injuries include damages to the intervertebral joints, discs and ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots of the neck. There are many symptoms of whiplash, which may occur directly after an accident or be delayed for several days:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Shoulder or back pain
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Myofascial injuries or injuries to the muscles and ligaments
  • Cognitive, somatic or psychological conditions such as memory loss, concentration impairment, nervousness or irritability, sleep disturbances, fatigue, or depression
