Common Oklahoma Car Accident Injuries

FREE CONSULTATION

A large portion of our clients come to us after suffering the effects of automobile accidents. Even low speed collisions can cause tremendous pain and suffering from head and neck trauma. Often this pain lingers for months or even years.

Whiplash is the popular term used to describe head and neck discomfort following injury to the neck’s ligaments, muscles and tendons. Major Car accidents or even minor car wrecks can bring about whiplash because the force of being impacted by a vehicle from behind causes these ligaments, muscles and tendons to move outside of their normal range of motion. Even low speed accidents can result in whiplash injuries – whether or not vehicle occupants are wearing a seatbelt.

Whiplash symptoms may manifest right after an accident or take several hours to develop; typically, the earlier the symptoms appear, the higher the odds of significant damage to the neck’s soft tissues.

Whiplash symptoms include the following:

  • Neck pain
  • Neck swelling
  • Headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Soreness on the back of the neck
  • Trouble moving your neck
  • Shooting pains from your neck into your shoulder or arm

It may be necessary to transport car accident victims with whiplash injuries directly to the emergency department via ambulance. Rescue personal will utilize a cervical collar to stabilize the patient’s neck, and a long, flat board will restrict bodily movements until a doctor can perform an examination.

If you have recently experienced injuries from an automobile accident, Carr & Carr’s years of experience helping Oklahoma automobile accident victims achieve the best possible outcomes can also guide you during this difficult time.  Please contact our Oklahoma car accident and car wreck lawyers at Carr and Carr Attorneys, with offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
