Vancouver, WA Car Accident Lawyer Fighting For Whiplash Victims
Attorney Colin Scott fights for the financial compensation you deserve
Whiplash is a very common and misunderstood injury in car accidents. If you suffered a whiplash injury in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve financial compensation. But insurance companies often don’t take these injuries seriously and will try to pay you as little as possible. That’s why you need an experienced Vancouver car accident lawyer to fight for you.
At The Scott Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that a whiplash injury can be very painful and debilitating. It can leave you with limited mobility that makes it difficult to take part in your usual activities. You may have to miss time from work, resulting in a loss of income.
What causes whiplash? It happens when your head snaps back and forth with great force during a crash. The motion is like the cracking of a whip. The muscles, ligaments and tendons in your neck are stretched beyond their normal range of motion. These injuries are often seen in rear-end collisions but can happen in any type of car accident.
Experienced lawyer fighting for the best results
The symptoms of whiplash can take time to develop. They usually include pain or stiffness in the neck, back or shoulders. Other symptoms may include headaches and dizziness. Treatment often involves rest and medication. Your doctor may also suggest that you wear a foam collar and recommend massage, chiropractic care or physical therapy.
If a negligent driver caused the car accident, you shouldn’t have to pay for treatment. Recovering compensation after a crash can be complicated. The driver may refuse to accept responsibility for the accident – even if the driver was speeding, texting or operating recklessly. The driver may deny doing anything wrong at all.
Then, there are the insurance companies. They are in business to make money. Paying you as little as possible helps them keep their profits as high as possible. So, they will question the seriousness of your injuries or try to blame you for causing the accident. They may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered.
