How Oklahomans Can Seek Compensation for Whiplash Injuries

By Maples Law Firm on June 14, 2012 - Comments off

If you are experiencing neck pain or stiffness following an Oklahoma car accident, you may be suffering from whiplash. Other potential symptoms include: headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, fatigue, and back pain. If you are feeling any of these symptoms, it is important that you report the accident to the authorities and seek immediate medical attention. Unfortunately, the resulting medical bills, lost wages, and other related losses suffered in a whiplash accident could add up quickly. If, however, the whiplash injury resulted from someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, financial compensation may be available for the victim’s injuries, damages, and losses.

If your medical records show that you have suffered a whiplash injury, the next step in pursuing financial compensation for your losses is to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. Ideally, they will offer you a settlement that covers all of your past and future medical bills related to the accident as well as compensation for any other losses you may have suffered. Sadly, it is common for insurance companies to deny valid claims or to offer settlements that do not even begin to fully cover the losses suffered in a car accident.

In such cases, it may be necessary to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. You will have to prove that the driver was negligent at the time of the accident and that his or her negligence directly resulted in your injuries and losses. A skilled car accident attorney can work with investigators to prove how the accident occurred and work with medical professionals to determine the extent of the injuries suffered.
