Accomplished California Lawyer Assists Clients with Whiplash Injuries

Tenacious San Jose advocate seeks damages for neck and head problems

Whiplash is a neck injury that can have lasting effects on someone who’s been hurt in an auto accident or another incident involving a severe head movement. Though many have heard of this medical condition, the extent of the damage is often a mystery. Our San Jose firm, the Law Offices of Richard J. Staskus, has handled California personal injury matters for more than 40 years and has a detailed understanding of the pain and expense that whiplash victims face. However you incurred your injury, we have the legal skill and medical connections to pursue appropriate relief.

Skillful litigator handles whiplash cases arising from vehicle crashes

Usually caused by a sudden jerking of the head and neck, whiplash injuries are mostly associated with situations where someone traveling at a high speed stops suddenly, such as automobile and motorcycle accidents. In a free consultation, our personal injury firm can help determine if you can make a legal claim relating to whiplash symptoms such as:

  • Neck pain and stiffness — Problems in the head and neck might not show up immediately after a whiplash incident, but could last a long time, creating expenses for medicine, braces and other treatments. We’ll make sure that these items are accounted for when pursuing compensation at trial or during settlement negotiations.
  • Headaches — Though a vehicle accident might not have seemed serious at first, unexplained headaches afterward could be a result of whiplash or a related condition.
  • Back and shoulder problems — Soft tissue damage often requires MRI and other sophisticated diagnostic testing. These conditions might severely impact your life, so it’s best to get assistance from a qualified professional immediately.
  • Difficulties with dizziness and concentration — If whiplash or another type of injury is affecting your equilibrium or ability to concentrate, you might not be able to perform your job duties. As part of our representation, we work tirelessly to recover any lost income.

Though defendants sometimes question these injuries, whiplash is nothing to joke about. Starting with a free initial consultation, we’ll treat your claim seriously and give it the personal attention it deserves.
