How to Calculate Compensation for Whiplash Injuries

Whiplash is a painful neck injury commonly suffered by the victims of car accidents. 

Whiplash gets its name from the motion of a whip, which is precisely the kind of sudden, jerking movement during a collision that can cause you to suffer a variety of symptoms, from neck stiffness to loss of range of motion in the neck. 

Whiplash can negatively impact your life, without doubt. But how can you calculate compensation for whiplash injuries? Read on to find out, and contact a car accident lawyer for help today.

Whiplash Injury Calculation

Car accidents can lead to a whole range of injuries and damages, of which whiplash is just one. Alongside whiplash, you can also suffer other serious injuries. 

When you go to the doctor or hospital to seek medical care or undergo treatment, there is an associated cost. The economic damages component of a car accident settlement can include compensation for your medical bills, including:

  • Hospital bills
  • Emergency room fees
  • Surgery costs
  • Physical therapy bills
  • Specialist copays
  • And much more

But medical bills are only part of the equation. Because whiplash has also been known to lead to emotional damages, such as depression, it could be the impetus for other non-economic damage compensation, including:

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Reduction in quality of life
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Emotional turmoil
  • Mental anguish

This list is not an exhaustive list of all the types of damages you can be awarded in a car accident settlement, such as other medical bills, property damages, lost income, and emotional damages. 

Fortunately, you can contact a whiplash attorney to learn more about the full range of compensation that could be available to you in a car accident claim.
