Car wrecks often involve significant forces that can severely damage or even destroy the human body.

This type of auto accident injury is commonly known as "whiplash."

Studies show that a large percentage of people with no more than whiplash injuries have lifetime pain and permanent restriction of their activities. Even so, many insurance companies often refuse to compensate injury victims fairly for their whiplash injuries. That's why it's critical you have an aggressive attorney on your side, fighting for your rights.
A driver or passenger in an accident may sustain whiplash. (The technical term is cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) trauma or syndrome). Any type of automobile accident can lead to whiplash, but this type of injury commonly is the result of a rear-end crash. The adverse effects from whiplash include a reduction in the range of motion in the neck, as the neck muscles are stretched to their limits during an automobile or truck accident. Pain also is a result of the soft discs between the spinal bones stretching or tearing.
Whiplash injury symptoms
The following are some whiplash injury symptoms:
- Pain in the shoulders, arms and hands
- Reduced ability to turn and bend
- Lower back problems
Car crashes are the leading cause of head injuries. We know because our experienced San Antonio head injury attorneys regularly work with families dealing with the aftermath of serious car accident injuries in Texas. In the blink of an eye, everything can change with a head injury. People with head injuries, or traumatic brain injury, may become permanently disabled. They may have to cope with skyrocketing medical bills. They may be unable to ever work again. If someone you love suffered a head injury, you and your family may have to struggle.
Car accidents resulting in a head injury happen for many reasons. Speeding accidents involving a driver or passenger's head striking an object such as a steering wheel or windshield can result in a head injury. But even minor crashes at lower speeds can produce the same devastating results.
Anyone who has ever experienced back pain knows how debilitating such injuries can be. A back injury as a result of a car accident in Texas can create a spiral of despair for the victim and his or her family. The insurance company may try to minimize your compensation. Don't let insurance companies push you around. Fight back. Contact a tough-minded attorney: the Herrera Law Firm.
