South Carolina Whiplash Injury Lawyer
Whiplash Injury Lawyers
Whiplash can often be dismissed or even misdiagnosed as just a minor injury. This can be very dangerous for the victim. Whiplash can result in persistent physical pain, emotional anguish, and loss of ability to perform certain tasks. In some cases, the symptoms of whiplash can be delayed and lead to potentially life-altering injuries well after the initial accident.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury in a motor vehicle crash caused by another party, you should contact the skilled and reliable whiplash injury lawyers at Joe and Martin. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

What Is Whiplash and What Are Its Effects?
Whiplash occurs when a violent force causes an individual to suffer hyperextension (head jerked forward) or hyperflexion (head jerked backwards). The sudden movement may result in a cervical strain or sprain, or soft tissue injuries such as herniated disc, bulging disc, or damage to muscles and ligaments. Car accidents, especially rear-end collisions, are notorious for causing whiplash.
The symptoms of whiplash may include:
- Difficulty Swallowing
- Difficulty Turning Neck
- Radiating neck pain
- Tingling Sensation

Why Do I Need An Attorney For A Whiplash Injury?
As we mentioned earlier, whiplash can be misdiagnosed. This is due to it not always showing up in x-rays. A misdiagnosis can lead to serious problems for the victim in the form of delayed symptoms which can worsen. This is why it’s very important to employ the help of a professional whiplash injury lawyer. Your health is very important to us.
Winning Your Whiplash Claim
If x-rays don’t show any initial neck damage following a car accident, the insurance company will most likely dispute your claim. This can create a problem as you will have to prove the other driver’s liability along with the extent of your damages in order to get the full and fair compensation you deserve. Our resourceful injury lawyers can help you establish a strong foundation of evidence for your claim by:
- Investigating your accident
- Gathering witness testimony
- Analyzing police and medical reports
- Collecting any photos and/or video footage
- Consulting with medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, and other relevant experts
Remember, the sooner we can get started on your claim, the better. Contact Joe and Martin right away for the best chance at an optimal case outcome.
