In the 2010 May issue of Salt Lake Accident Injury Law Firm Newsletter, Mr. Sore from Sandy asked Attorney Christensen the following question. “I was rear-ended recently, but didn’t feel any pain right away.  Now my neck and back hurt, but the x-rays came back negative.  Is this common after a car accident?”

Attorney Christensen responded, “One of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident is whiplash. Symptoms from this injury can be debilitating and last months or even longer.  In many cases, the victim suffers from neck pain, loss of feeling or pain in the arms, shoulder pain, headaches, or dizziness.” (Volume 3, Issue 5)

Attorney Christensen has hit it spot on the head.  Whiplash is what we like to call a silent injury.  The symptoms, as Sore mentioned in his description, don’t necessarily manifest themselves right away.  They can taken moments or even months to manifest themselves.  However, when they do, they can be terribly painful.
