What Does Whiplash Feel Like?
Whiplash of the Neck
The most common type of whiplash is a neck injury suffered in collisions. In essence, this is a medical condition in which the neck is injured after being whipped back and forth quickly and forcefully.
Take, for example, a very common cause of these whiplash injuries: rear-end accidents. When a car is rear-ended, anyone inside will be suddenly pushed forward. Just as quickly, they will be stopped by their seat belt, and their head and neck will be thrown back into the seat.
- Neck pain
- Stiffness in the neck
- Headaches, especially at the base of the skull
- Difficulty moving the neck without pain
- Shoulder pain
- Upper back pain
- Arm pain
- Tingling in the arms
In rare cases, a person may experience:
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Blurred vision
- Memory problems
Lower Back Whiplash: Signs and Symptoms
Whiplash may also impact the lower back if the trunk of the body is suddenly whipped back and forth (such as in a contact sport accident).
Symptoms of lower back whiplash include:
- Lower back pain
- Swollen or stiff lower back
- Back/muscle spasms
- Tingling sensation in the back
How Long Does It Take for Whiplash to Show Up?
Many accident victims experience delayed whiplash symptoms. Sometimes this is due to the adrenaline rush that follows an accident; other times it simply takes time for symptoms to develop.
Most people will develop whiplash symptoms between 24 hours and a few days’ time after the accident or incident.
To protect your health, make sure to see a doctor as soon after a crash as possible. Then again if you develop any whiplash symptoms.
Who Is Responsible for My Whiplash Injuries?
The person at fault for the accident will be financially liable for your injury. To prove fault, you will need to show they were negligent in some way. For a traffic accident, that may mean they were driving while distracted, drunk, fatigued, or the like.
Our Atlanta whiplash injury lawyers can help you identify the at-fault party in your case. These cases can be difficult to prove, especially because whiplash may show up long after the accident happened. This leaves it open for the insurance company and at-fault party to claim something else caused the injury.
At The Roth Firm, LLC, we won’t stand by and let this happen. We will work tirelessly to protect your rights. For over 15 years, we have recovered compensation for clients with whiplash injuries, helping them afford the treatment and time off they need to heal.

The Roth Firm, LLC accepts a wide range of whiplash cases. That said, we only take on a few cases at a time, so as to give clients our undivided attention. We pride ourselves on our high-quality service.

Compensation for Whiplash Injuries
Whiplash injuries often cause the victim to suffer losses (also known as “damages”) as follows:
- Urgent care/ER treatment
- Hospital treatment
- Physical therapy
- Time off work or school
- Lost wages and benefits
- Reduced future income or earning potential
- Pain and suffering
Under Georgia law, an accident victim may be compensated for the above damages. They must show that the accident (and whiplash injury) is what caused them.
