Whiplash is a soft-tissue injury to the neck that is often the result of a rear-end collision. The challenges of whiplash are, in part, the same as for any other soft-tissue injury and include:
- Delayed appearance — Whiplash can take some time to manifest. An injured individual may only experience minor pain at first. Many people assume the pain of whiplash maybe simply part of being "banged around" in an accident. They may simply take over-the-counter pain medication and delay telling their doctors about the pain, hoping it will just go away.
- Insurance companies fight whiplash claims — Given that soft-tissue injuries such as whiplash often lack objective supporting evidence such as an X-ray, insurance companies often deny or attempt to minimize compensation.
The effects of whiplash can be insidious. Internal scars from torn muscles and ligaments can impact nerves, and the pain from whiplash can radiate down into the limbs.
