Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in BC automobile accidents. While on the surface these injuries may seem minor, the long-term consequences of whiplash can be both physically painful and economically damaging.
In many instances, the ICBC will grade whiplash as mild, but this is a highly subjective categorization and does not accurately reflect the true damages caused by these injuries. If you have sustained whiplash in a BC auto accident, you need an experienced lawyer on your side to fight against the ICBC and get you the compensation you truly deserve.
Consequences of Whiplash
The most common effects of whiplash are pain and stiffness. This may include headaches and shoulder/back pain. Whiplash can also lead to:
- Visual disruptions
- Tingling in the arms
In some cases, these symptoms will continue to come and go for years at a time, but, as there are no diagnostics to prove these symptoms, the ICBC will generally ignore the long-term consequence of whiplash and provide you with an inadequate settlement.
