Whiplash injuries are very real—-and they are very debilitating. They are also some of the most misunderstood injuries and are often the butt of sitcom jokes. As a result, juries and insurance companies are skeptical of whiplash injury claims. They may believe that you are “faking” an injury or that you are not as injured as you claim to be. When this occurs, you need an experienced whiplash injury lawyer from the moment you are injured. The right whiplash attorney will be able to prove your case and maximize your compensation.
Compensation for Whiplash Injuries
Those who have experienced a whiplash injury in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence could be entitled to compensation. This money is intended to make an injured plaintiff whole again by paying medical bills and compensating for lost wages. Damages could also include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium. Sometimes punitive damages are awarded. This is a sum far in excess of a plaintiff’s actual monetary losses, meant to punish a defendant.
Yet obtaining the compensation you need—and deserve— after a whiplash injury is not easy and requires an experienced and skilled whiplash injury lawyer.
While you may have gone to the emergency room immediately following your accident, in some cases whiplash symptoms will not fully manifest for days—or even weeks—after your car crash. A highly experienced Denver whiplash injury attorney is very aware of the issues associated with whiplash injuries and knows the best ways to deal with those issues.
A knowledgeable whiplash attorney can deal with a jury’s potential skepticism regarding your whiplash injuries by presenting your case in such a way that the jury can see beyond their biases. Your injuries can be every bit as debilitating—or more—as an injury to any other body part. While you are dealing with your whiplash injuries, allowing an experienced personal injury attorney to deal with insurance companies, defense attorneys, and juries can be a huge load off your mind, and can mean a much more equitable settlement for your whiplash injury.
Unfortunately, the stigma attached to whiplash injuries can be detrimental to those who have received very real injuries to their neck following an automobile accident. Doctors use the term “whiplash” to describe any issue to the muscles, nerves, ligaments, and discs of the cervical spine. While the limitations and chronic pain you may experience from your whiplash injury are very real, many people hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney for their neck injury due to the negative connotations associated with whiplash claims.
