Whiplash Injuries

Our team of lawyers specialised in compensation for personal injury have wide experience in handl­ing cases concerning compensation for whiplash injuries.

A whiplash injury is mainly described as a distortion of the cervical spine. Whiplash injuries often occur in connection with traffic accidents, but may also result from other kinds of accidents.


Whiplash is the type of injury giving most cause for disagreement with the tortfeasor’s insurance company as to the measure of damages.


Still today, it is not possible to establish whiplash injuries; they cannot be proved either by means of X-ray examinations or MR/CT scans. Consequently, the demands on the medical documentation required to establish the extent of your injury and the course of your treatment are high.


If you have any inconvenience after any such accident, it is therefore important that you contact the emergency rescue service or your general practitioner within the first few days. You ought to ensure that your symptoms and your inconvenience are duly recorded in your medical findings.


The most common symptoms are:

  • Headache;
  • memory and concentration problems;
  • pain at the base of the skull;
  • dizziness;
  • muscular weakness in your arms;
  • visual disturbances;
  • sleeping problems;
  • irritability;
  • fatique;
  • pain irradiation in arms and legs;
  • pain in your spinal column;
  • tinnitus;
  • sensitivity to noise;
  • nausea and vomiting may be signs of concussion of the brain and should be disclosed to the doctor.


For the purpose of a thorough exposure of the consequences of your whiplash injury, it is important to obtain all relevant medical records, including medical specialist declarations and neuropsychological evaluations.
