What injuries are caused by auto accidents in Plantation?
An auto accident can cause trauma to the entire body which can last a lifetime if you don’t seek treatment immediately. Pain and bruises often present after an auto accident, along with some breaks, strains, and swelling. The most common types of auto injuries include:

Sometimes, it can take days or even weeks for symptoms related to automobile accident injuries to show up.
What is whiplash?
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries sustained in an auto accident, particularly in a rear end collision. The impact causes the head to snap forwards and backwards, putting a significant strain on the cervical vertebrae, muscles, and tissues in the neck. Whiplash can cause the following:
- Neck pain and/or lower back pain
- Shooting pain in the arms and/or legs
- Numbness, tingling, or burning
- Muscular aches and pains
- Difficulty sleeping
Many symptoms of whiplash may not show up right away. Days or weeks can pass without pain surfacing. It’s important to have a professional diagnosis immediately after an accident.
