Scheduling a consultation with our experienced firm may allow you to seek significant compensation related to your injuries. Taking the financial burdens associated with your injuries “off your plate” so that you can focus on healing may improve your life significantly during this challenging time.
Why Whiplash Victims Need to Explore Their Legal Options
Whiplash injuries occur when the head and neck are exposed to rapid jerk-like motions, usually as a result of auto accidents, work-related hazards, sports trauma, or assault. As whiplash is an “invisible” injury and is the result of soft tissue damage that isn’t always immediately perceptible, a diagnosis of whiplash may occur days – or even more than a week – after harmful circumstances have caused the injury in question.
Whiplash injury victims may experience fatigue, headaches, neck aches, dizziness, shoulder and arm pain or tingling, ringing in the ears, muscle spasms, and other symptoms for months following the original injury. If the body is not permitted to rest effectively, the soft tissue damage caused by whiplash can lead to long-lasting complications in both the affected areas and throughout the body – given that the rest of the body will attempt to compensate for the injury victim’s attempts to “work through” the pain. This is one of the many reasons why it is so important to speak with the experienced Wisconsin legal team at Hickey & Turim SC in the event that you’ve experienced whiplash. If you don’t seek compensation that you’re entitled to – that will ultimately allow you to rest instead of working through the pain – your symptoms could worsen and affect you in various ways for a very long time. Taking the time to explore your legal options will, in this way, potentially help to safeguard your health and wellbeing.
If you’ve been injured on the job (or traveling for work-related reasons) you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault for the harm you’ve suffered. If you weren’t “on the job” at the time you suffered whiplash, you may be able to hold others accountable for their negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous conduct that contributed to your harm. Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to pursue financial “damages” via a personal injury suit or an insurance settlement. No matter which options are applicable to your situation, our legal team can help.
