Potential for Traumatic Brain Injury

Because whiplash forces the head back and forth rapidly, it can also shake up the brain inside the skull and cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI). If you have the following symptoms after a rear-end car crash or other accident, you should discuss the possibility of a TBI with your doctor:

  • Memory problems
  • Blurred vision
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Ringing in the ears

Unlike broken bones, the strains, sprains, and brain injury caused by whiplash do not show up on X-rays or MRI scans, so it is not easy to prove a claim for compensation for injuries resulting from whiplash.
