Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Whiplash Injury Law Firm MarylandA whiplash injury that occurs in the state of Maryland often warrants the need for a whiplash injury law firm Maryland residents can rely on.

Whiplash is colloquial term that is often used for soft-tissue injuries of the neck that are caused by sudden, back and forth, jerking motions of the head. Cervical acceleration-deceleration (CAD) describes the mechanism that causes the injury. Whiplash associated disorders (WAD) describes the symptoms that are often a result of this kind of injury.

Whiplash can be painful and debilitating for the person who suffers from it. Many people who suffer from whiplash do not initially have symptoms in the hours immediately following the accident or incident that caused the injury. It often takes 24-48 hours for symptoms to appear.

While whiplash can be caused by many different things, it is a very common result of automobile accidents. When someone has been in an accident, it is recommended that he or she seek medical care even symptoms are not present. In the event that symptoms of an injury start to present themselves, it is good to have record of this via medical appointments and treatments.

If you have are suffering from whiplash that is the result of an automobile accident or other event that occured in Maryland, talking to a whiplash injury law firm in Maryland may help you to understand your rights. If your injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, or malicious or reckless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation from the person who caused your injury.

Whiplash and Motor Vehicle Collisions

Whiplash is a common result of motor vehicle collisions, especially when they are the result of rear-end collisions. This is because a person’s safety belt holds their torso in place while their head is abruptly flung forward and then jerked backward from the force of the crash. This rapid movement often causes soft tissue damage in the neck.

If you are suffering from whiplash that is the result of a car crash or other incident that occured in Maryland, discussing your rights with a reputable whiplash injury law firm in Maryland may help you to understand what your next steps should be.

Whiplash Symptoms

Neck and muscle strains are common symptoms of whiplash injuries. The muscles, ligaments and tendons in the neck can be strained, sprained or even tear completely.

Even if you do not initially have symptoms of whiplash after an accident, it is a good idea to seek medical care so that if you wind up needing a good whiplash injury law firm in Maryland, they will be able to use this documentation as evidence to make a strong case for you.

Common symptoms of whiplash include but are not limited to:

  • Pain
  • Numbness, weakness and/or tingling
  • Discomfort when moving the head (and neck)
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Neck stiffness
  • Blurry vision
  • Difficulty sleeping

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.
