Have You Suffered a Whiplash Injury While on the Job?
Many people have to drive frequently for their job. Those who drive trucks, taxi, limos, school buses, and other work vehicles are at constantly at risk for serious injury on the road. Whiplash is a real concern for drivers who have been hit from the rear. While many people believe whiplash is a con to scam money out of insurance companies and to file bogus personal injury claims, whiplash is in fact a real condition that causes real problems.
Whiplash occurs when the neck or spine is distorted due to a heavy or light impact. Signs and symptoms of whiplash include aches and pains in the neck and spine, dizziness, numbness, shoulder pain, nausea, and headaches. Treatment options are diverse, including physical therapy, manipulation, anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesics, and wearing a neck brace for 24-72 hours.
If you think you have suffered from whiplash while working, you should contact your employer immediately. Tell your supervisor about your symptoms and ask to see a doctor. If your employer or their insurance company gives you a hard time, contact a Warren County workers' compensation attorney. A qualified workers comp lawyer can help you get fully paid medical care and compensation for your time out of work, if necessary. Don’t let the insurance companies bully you around. Injured workers deserve fair and complete compensation.
