There are many different types of injuries that Connecticut residents can suffer from when they are involved in a car accident. Broken bones are common, as are bruises, cuts and scrapes. But, perhaps the one injury that many of our readers are most familiar with is whiplash.

What happens when Connecticut residents suffer whiplash injuries in a car accident? There are many different symptoms of this type of injury, and sometimes the symptoms do not manifest until hours or days after the car accident occurred. Whiplash occurs when a person’s body get pushed forward suddenly, causing the person’s head to snap backwards quickly and violently. This can lead to significant issues with the victim’s neck and head.

First, victims may feel some pain and stiffness in their neck. If they’re lucky, that’s all they feel. More serious cases of whiplash can include symptoms such as dizziness, balance problems and prolonged aching in the neck. Ligaments can be damaged, as can the nerves and vertebrae in the victim’s neck.

Whiplash injuries are most common in rear-end accidents, in which one vehicle slams into the back of another vehicle in front of it. It is pretty much common knowledge that when this type of accident occurs, the person driving the rear vehicle was most likely at fault for the accident. Connecticut residents who have suffered a whiplash injury in a car accident may need to explore their legal options in order to attempt to recover financial compensation by potentially filing a personal injury lawsuit.
