Cervical Spine Whiplash Injuries After a Car Wreck
Our attorneys represent many clients with various injuries stemming from motor vehicle accidents. The most common injury reported to us by our clients is severe neck pain. When people hear the word “Whiplash,” they often believe these injuries are not real or are not very serious. Thinking that soft tissue or whiplash injuries are not severe injuries is absolutely not the case. In fact, recent advancements in medicine and soft tissue injury research have found neck injuries to be considerably complicated to heal when compared to a broken leg. Neck injuries can also be life-long and severely debilitating.

Is Whiplash Treatable?
In most cases, whiplash can be treated. However, whiplash injuries are more complicated than a fracture. This is because of the types of biological tissues involved. When a fracture heals, the bone fracture normally heals and becomes stronger than before at the fracture. With soft tissue injuries, these injuries tend to have recurring issues of inflammation. That is why it is important that you retain a law firm who is understanding and experience with neck injuries including whiplash injuries. This way you can recover the cash settlement you need to pay for past, present and future medical treatments. Stein & Shulman, LLC will look for all avenues of insurance coverages and may be able to “stack” insurance policies in order to obtain the best settlement offer or recovery possible.

Every day you see television advertisements from insurance companies promising you that they will be there for you when you need them. However, the reality is, insurance companies are not charities. They are “for profit” enterprises. A CNN article entitled, “Auto Insurers Play Hardball in Minor-crash Claims” reveals the dark patterns of insurance bad faith practices used by insurance companies to pay out less money or outright deny claims.
