Whiplash is an injury that occurs when your neck is suddenly thrust forward and then back again, injuring the muscles and ligaments. Whiplash injuries frequently result from a rear-end accident or collision with another vehicle. While many people can recover quickly from whiplash, others have persistent difficulty with ongoing pain and loss of mobility.
If you have suffered a whiplash injury in a motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation through ICBC. This is where Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP steps in. We handle the burden of dealing with the legal claim so our clients can focus on recovering. If your ICBC claim for a whiplash injury is already in process, it is important to seek a lawyer's advice before agreeing to any settlement.
Recognizing Signs of a Whiplash Injury
People with whiplash injuries can experience pain, headaches, muscle stiffness, sleeping problems and difficulties with concentration. However, symptoms of whiplash do not always arise immediately after a car accident; it can take time before a person experiences the full effects of a whiplash injury. For that reason, it is prudent to seek legal advice from Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP before settling your whiplash injury claim with ICBC.
Our lawyers will help ensure that your rights are protected and will work to achieve full and fair compensation for your neck injuries. Whether you have sustained a whiplash injury in a car accident, a truck accident or another motor vehicle collision, our lawyers are ready to undertake your legal claim.
