WHIPLASH INJURY LAWYER MINNEAPOLIS calls your attention to a recent medical journal article discussing LATE WHIPLASH SYNDROME.
This scholarly article notes:
- 14 to 42% of the victims of whiplash injury are left with chronic symptoms of neck and back injury;
- It is unlikely that only minor self-limiting injuries result from the typical rear-end collision;
- The term “whiplash” refers to a multi-factorial complex of both organic and bio-psychosocial factors resulting from the sudden acceleration-deceleration trauma to the neck and head.
- An estimated 15.5 million Americans currently suffer from Late Whiplash Syndrome.
WHIPLASH INJURY LAWYER MINNEAPOLIS notes that the authors describe “Late Whiplash Syndrome” as a constellation of symptoms including neck pain and stiffness, persistent headache, dizziness, upper limb paresthesia, and psychological and emotional distress that persist more than 6 months post-accident.
