"Whiplash" is a term that gets used a lot in describing injuries sustained in car accidents, particularly rear-end accidents. You won't hear medical professionals use the term as often because it is a nonmedical term that gets used to describe a host of other neck and head injuries.
There is no arguing the fact that these injuries cause a great deal of pain, however, and can limit one's ability to handle daily functions.
At the law offices of Kajko, Weisman & Colasanti, LLP, our proven personal injury lawyers are prepared to fight for the full amount you are owed if you suffer an injury in a rear-end collision that was caused by someone else.
Many passengers who are injured in accidents do not realize they can file a personal injury claim even if the driver of the car they were riding in was at fault. You may feel uncomfortable filing a claim against a friend's or family member's insurance company, but the reality is that is what insurance policies are for. Contact us and we will explain your options.

If you or someone you love suffered an injury in a rear-end accident that was caused by someone else, it's important to contact an experienced and aggressive personal injury attorney who will advocate on your behalf.
Often, a person who is injured in a rear-end collision may not feel the symptoms of soft tissue injuries immediately after the accident. Because of this, it is important to not make statements regarding the extent of your injuries to any insurance company representatives or even law enforcement officials until you have been examined by a physician and spoken with a personal injury lawyer.
If you experience any of the following symptoms after being involved in a rear-end accident, it is wise to consult with a medical specialist:
- Tightness in the neck or serious neck pain
- Problems with balance or equilibrium
- Back pain
- Memory problems or difficulty concentrating
