Whiplash Injury Accident
One of the most common injuries from a car accident is whiplash. This is a type of soft tissue injury that results when the injured person’s neck or back is stretched or strained by the force of a car crash. In most cases, the pain from a whiplash injury will resolve within three to six months. However, people with degenerative disc disease or other health conditions often develop chronic pain following a whiplash injury that can lead to other conditions including insomnia and depression.
After a car crash, ICBC will try to categorize your whiplash accident as mild, moderate or severe. They will use this categorization as a benchmark on what your injury is worth. However, the actual value of a personal injury claim does not depend on ICBC’s categorization but depends on how long the symptoms last and how much they affect the victim’s life. There is usually a big difference between what ICBC says a whiplash injury is worth and what an experienced personal injury lawyer can get for someone with a whiplash injury.
