Does Whiplash Go Away on Its Own?

Published on Apr 3, 2018 at 4:05 pm in Car Accidents.

If you’ve been injured in a car wreck, one of the injuries you might be most worried about is whiplash. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries experienced after being involved in a car accident and is caused by the force of your vehicle suddenly stopping/crashing as the accident occurs. The sudden force causes your head and neck to jerk backwards/forwards in the direction of the vehicle’s momentum. These sudden jerks can cause a surprising amount of damage to the neck, back, and spine.

Whiplash is a complex injury to treat because it may appear in a somewhat delayed manner. After being in a wreck, you may feel fine initially, but as the muscles, tendons, nerves, and fragile discs in your neck begin to settle, you may find that whiplash symptoms become more severe. Whiplash can begin to show symptoms immediately after an accident or hours or even days after the event.

Why Aren’t People Wearing Seatbelts in Georgia?

Published on Dec 14, 2017 at 4:47 pm in Car Accidents.

One of the most effective safety features in a car is the seatbelt. They lock in place and prevent you from ejecting from your seat in the event of a car crash. We all grew up with the phrase, “Buckle up, it’s the law,” and these signs are everywhere on the road.

However, seatbelt laws change from state to state. In Georgia, people in the front seat of the car are required to wear seatbelts, but not those in the back. This allows people the opportunity to opt out of protecting themselves when they’re in a car. Unfortunately, this also means they’re at a higher risk for injury and fatality when they’re in a crash.
