Denver Whiplash Injury Attorney Serving Colorado

Of the different types of serious injuries that a person may experience, those that affect the back and neck are often among the most troublesome. Whiplash can be especially frustrating, and it can lead to soreness and stiffness in the neck that may affect a person's ability to work, engage in daily activities, and maintain a good quality of life. In some cases, these injuries can result in long-lasting or even permanent health problems. Addressing these issues and returning to normalcy after an accident or injury can often be difficult, especially when a person requires extensive medical treatment or when their ability to work is affected.

To make matters more difficult, many insurance companies are suspicious of whiplash injuries reported by those who file claims. An insurance adjuster may claim that a person is exaggerating their symptoms or that their injuries were not caused by the accident that led to the claim. As a result, the insurance company may deny or delay a claim, affecting a person's ability to receive the treatment they need and address the effects of their injuries. If you or someone you love has experienced a whiplash injury caused by a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or another situation where someone else was at fault, it is very important to contact The Gold Law Firm immediately. Our experienced attorneys will work to ensure that you will receive the compensation you need to fully recover from your injuries.

What Is Whiplash?

When a person experiences a strong impact, their neck may be violently snapped backwards and forwards. This whip-like action can damage the delicate muscle fibers, tendons, and ligaments in the neck. This may lead to issues such as neck pain and stiffness, as well as difficulty moving the shoulders and arms. Whiplash can also lead to nerve damage, including spinal cord injuries or damage to other nerves throughout the neck and shoulders. This can lead to multiple issues, including numbness and tingling in the shoulders and arms, difficulty with fine motor movements in the hands and fingers, headaches, blurred vision, problems with concentration and memory, back pain, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and TMJ disorders that affect the movement of the jaw. Because it can lead to so many different types of complex symptoms, whiplash can be difficult to diagnose.

When a person receives emergency treatment following a car accident or other dangerous situation, the most outwardly obvious injuries will be addressed, such as lacerations or broken bones. However, symptoms of whiplash may not be detected until days or even weeks after the initial injury. Problems such as stiffness in the joints and muscles, difficulty moving the neck and arms, loss of sensation, chronic headaches, memory problems, sleep disorders, and other symptoms may appear gradually and worsen over time. Unfortunately, this delayed onset of symptoms may cause insurance companies to be suspicious of a whiplash diagnosis. While symptoms may be traced back to a car accident or another situation that gave rise to an insurance claim, the fact that they took time to fully make themselves known may be a reason for the denial of coverage.

Whiplash-related injuries will often heal within a few months, but there are some cases where ongoing issues may affect a victim for years. If a person experienced nerve damage, they may never fully recover. Unfortunately, the denial of an insurance claim or a delay in providing coverage may make it difficult for a person to receive the treatment they need. To avoid these issues, it is important to work with an experienced lawyer who can ensure that victims receive full coverage for their injuries or who can pursue personal injury lawsuits against the parties who were responsible for an injury.
