Dangers of Whiplash

Many employees, especially those who drive for a living, have at some point or another had the responsibility of driving in order to complete work-related duties. While most of these trips pass without incident, in the event that an accident does occur, the consequences can be severe. A collision might result in a variety of health problems, including whiplash, which can have many serious complications.

If you or someone you know has suffered from a work-related accident that has caused them to be negatively affected with the complications of whiplash, the Morehead City workers’ compensation attorneys of the Law Office of Sam Scudder, are prepared to help you to pursue the benefits which you are due under the law. Contact us by calling 919-851-3311 today to discuss your claim.

Possible Complications

Whiplash in and of itself can be painful and limiting. However, it also can have a serious effect on your lifestyle due to the variety of other complications it may cause, such as:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck swelling
  • Brain damage
  • Long-lasting and severe headaches
  • Immobility
  • Back and shoulder pain

While most of the time whiplash does not have life-threatening consequences, the effects and pain that it causes can impair one’s ability to work at full capacity, thereby necessitating missed time for recovery or an adjustment of duties.
