Working With Your Doctor to Identify the Extent of Your Injuries
Medically speaking, injuries that cause damage to the muscles, ligaments and tendons are considered soft tissue injuries. These are commonly referred to as whiplash injuries because they are often caused by a whipping motion of the head that affects the tissues in the neck and back.
If you are experiencing persistent pain or loss of function after a back or neck injury, it is important to share your symptoms with your doctor so you can get an accurate diagnosis.
The symptoms of whiplash do not always become obvious until days after an accident, if not longer. This can be due to the effects of adrenalin or due to other injuries, like bone fractures, that tend to attract more immediate attention from both accident victims and doctors.
Our experienced lawyers can work with your doctors to ensure that your condition is fully evaluated and carefully documented for purposes of your personal injury claim.
