Many insurance companies do not take whiplash injuries seriously. No matter how much pain you are experiencing or how severely the injury affects your life, your insurance adjuster may not believe that you are really injured. To receive the compensation you deserve, you will likely need the help of an experienced attorney.
Tampa personal injury attorney Mike Hancock has represented people who suffer neck and back injuries in car wrecks and other types of accidents caused by someone else’s negligence for over 25 years. Our goal is to help our clients obtain the full compensation they deserve.
What Is Whiplash?
Whiplash is a term used to describe an injury to the soft tissues of your neck such as ligaments, tendons and muscles. Whiplash injuries are common in rear-end collisions, accidental falls and other types of accidents in which the neck moves beyond its normal range of motion.
You may assume that the neck pain you are experiencing will go away with time. However, whiplash can affect you for months or years into the future and may result in chronic pain. As with any serious injury, it’s important to seek immediate medical treatment and to follow your doctor’s treatment plan for your recovery. If you delay seeking treatment or attempt self-treatment, the insurance may not believe that your injury is serious.
If the pain goes away with treatment, you should count yourself lucky. It’s much better to have your health than to have a personal injury case. If your injury does not go away, our lawyers will demand enough money to compensate you for everything you have lost.
