A whiplash accident is a very common injury for those involved in a Wisconsin car crash. It is actually a very serious injury that can cause a lot of pain and long-term damage. It is most commonly attributed to rear-end car crashes.
Unfortunately, a whiplash injury can be difficult to prove. As with any injury claim, proving that an injury exists is a must. In order to prove that you have suffered from a whiplash injury, you should:
- Get medical testimony. If you believe you have suffered from whiplash, you need to have your doctor confirm this diagnosis. It is important to get a physician who will explain the extent of your injuries and how you have suffered. Your doctor should also order appropriate imaging tests to document the damage done to your body.
- Keep a journal. After you have been injured, you should begin to keep a daily journal. In the journal, you should keep a detailed account of the pain you are suffering from and how it is affecting your daily living.
- Let others know. It will be beneficial to discuss your pain and suffering with those around you. If they are asked about this by the insurance company—or on the witness stand—they will be able to report what you have been through.
