Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

DC Whiplash Injury Lawyer When a person is suffering from whiplash that is the result of someone else’s negligent, malicious, or reckless behavior, they may find it helpful to talk to a DC whiplash injury lawyer who is familiar with whiplash injuries. Whiplash can be extremely painful and debilitating. It can also cause brain damage. If someone is suffering from whiplash because of something that someone else did, he or she may be entitled to compensation for their injury and the damages it caused. A lawyer who is experienced in successfully defending these kinds of cases may be able to help a whiplash victim and their family make more informed decisions about what their next steps should be.

Any impact or blow that causes someone’s head to jerk forward or backward beyond its normal range of motion, can cause a neck strain that is often referred to as whiplash. Car accidents, sports injuries, falls, roller coaster and other amusement park rides, and being shook too hard are common ways people get whiplash. When it comes to car accidents, one of the most common causes of whiplash are rear-end collisions. When a moving object comes in contact with a stationary object, the stationary object absorbs the impact. A person’s body that is wearing a seatbelt to prevent them from flying forward into the windshield, will move with the impact of the other car while their head and neck are jerked back and forth.

This kind of injury can cause soft tissue damage, the effects of which can be felt for years after the initial injury. The sudden force of this kind of injury can stretch and tear the muscles and tendons in a person’s neck. This can cause anywhere from severe to mild pain as well as limiting the injured person’s range of neck motion. The length of time and ability to fully recover is determined by the severity of a person’s injuries and other factors such as their age, and physical condition prior to the accident. Some people heal quickly while others take a long time with their symptoms worsening over time. People can become permanently disabled because of whiplash. Whiplash can make a person more susceptible to future neck injuries and it can make healing from them more difficult. Common symptoms of whiplash include:

  • Pain in the neck, shoulders, back, head, arm or jaw
  • Stiffness in the neck, shoulders, back, head, arm or jaw
  • Loss of neck motion
  • Headaches
  • Vision problems
  • Dizziness
  • Tinnitus (continuous ringing in the ears)
  • Arm weakness
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder)
  • Sleep disorders
  • Fatigue, depression, anger and anxiety
  • Memory loss and difficulty concentrating

It is often difficult for doctors to detect soft tissue injuries during medical tests. Very often, brain injuries are overlooked because there was no blow to the head and because they do not always present visible injuries or symptoms. Failing to treat a brain injury can lead to further, more serious injuries and complications.

If you or someone you care about is suffering from whiplash, a good place to begin learning about whether or not you or that person is entitled to compensation, is by talking to an experienced whiplash injury lawyer.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
