Suffering from Whiplash in Los Angeles? We Can Help

As a certified California attorney referral service, we have the privilege of working with some of the best whiplash lawyers in Los Angeles.

Over the past seven years we have been connecting people just like you with whiplash attorneys who are ready to fight for you. In some cases our member attorneys have achieved seven figure settlements for clients they’ve helped.

If you’re looking to hire one of the best attorneys in the state for your case, take a look at our list below.

Recent Whiplash Settlements

  1. A 30-year-old woman was injured in a motor vehicle accident resulting in neck and back injuries. She received a settlement of $375,000. Her injuries included a fracture of the anterior inferior corner of C5 with distraction of the C5-6 spinous prosthesis. Doctors diagnosed her with an unstable ligamentous neck injury at C5-6. She underwent a posterior cervical decompression- she has since recovered well, leading a normal active life.
  2. Following an auto collision with a semi-truck, this plaintiff received a settlement of $315,000. The accident resulted in severe lumbar spine injuries, necessitating surgery. Additionally, the plaintiff suffered traumatic injuries to the back and neck, leading to PTSD and aggravation of their pre-existing neck and back conditions.
  3. A 53-year-old hotel porter received a $4,000,000 settlement after a car accident. While driving through an intersection, he was struck by another car making a left turn, resulting in injuries to his neck, shoulder, and back, including herniated discs. The plaintiff underwent multiple surgeries to address his spinal injuries and left shoulder tear. Despite undergoing treatment, he continued to experience residual pain and limitations that hindered his ability to return to manual labor. He sought compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

Common Cases We Handle

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: We handle a wide range of motor vehicle accident cases, including car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents. If you have suffered a whiplash injury due to someone else’s negligence on the road, our legal team is here to fight for your rights.
  • Personal Injury Claims: Whiplash is a common form of personal injury, and we have a proven track record of successfully representing clients in personal injury claims. Whether your injury occurred in a car accident, slip and fall, or another incident, we have the expertise to build a strong case on your behalf.
  • Insurance Negotiations: Dealing with insurance companies can be challenging, but our whiplash attorneys are skilled negotiators. We can help you deal with insurers and work to secure a fair settlement for your whiplash injury.

Cases We Don’t Handle

  • Whiplash Cases with Contributory Negligence: While we specialize in personal injury cases, there are certain whiplash cases we may not handle. For instance, if the whiplash injury resulted from an accident where the injured party was at fault or if it occurred in a situation not involving negligence, we may recommend consulting with an attorney specializing in such cases.
  • Criminal Defense: While we specialize in personal injury cases, we do not handle criminal defense matters. If you are facing criminal charges, we recommend consulting with a qualified criminal defense attorney who can address your legal needs.
  • Non-Legal Cases: We specialize in providing referrals for individuals seeking legal assistance. If you require help with non-legal matters such as finding employment, housing, or financial assistance, we recommend contacting appropriate organizations or agencies specializing in these areas.

How much is a whiplash claim worth in California?

The value of a whiplash claim in California can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars or more, depending on the circumstances. State law does not provide a fixed compensation amount for whiplash injuries.

Instead, the value is determined based on the specific details of each case. Here is a specific range with numbers to provide a better idea:

  • Minor Whiplash Injuries: These cases can settle for less than $10,000. Minor injuries typically involve less severe symptoms and shorter recovery periods.
  • Moderate Whiplash Injuries: For injuries that fall in the middle range in terms of severity, settlements might range from $10,000 to $30,000. This category includes cases with somewhat more extensive medical treatment and symptoms.
  • Serious Whiplash Injuries: Severe whiplash injuries that result in long-lasting pain, significant medical expenses, and potential disabilities can settle for over $30,000. In some cases, settlements may exceed $100,000, especially if there are complications or long-term consequences.

Factors that can influence the worth of a whiplash claim in California include the extent of medical treatment required, the duration of symptoms, the impact on the victim’s daily life, and any resulting disabilities.

To get an accurate estimate of the worth of your whiplash claim in California, you should consult with an experienced personal injury or whiplash attorney.

What does insurance do for whiplash?

An insurance settlement typically covers whiplash injuries as part of a car accident claim. It helps pay for medical expenses, including doctor visits, treatments, and medications related to whiplash. Additionally, insurance may cover other costs such as lost wages and pain and suffering, depending on the policy and the circumstances of the accident.

What are the different stages of whiplash?

Whiplash typically progresses through several stages:

  1. Immediate Symptoms: These often occur within 24 hours of the injury and can include neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and sometimes dizziness or blurred vision.
  2. Early Recovery: In this stage, which can last a few weeks, the pain and stiffness may intensify. You should rest as much as possible, apply ice, and use pain medication as directed by a healthcare provider. Physical therapy may also be recommended to restore range of motion.
  3. Intermediate Phase: This stage, lasting several weeks to a few months, involves ongoing rehabilitation exercises, pain management, and potential interventions like chiropractic care or acupuncture.
  4. Resolution: Many individuals recover fully within a few months to a year. Pain and stiffness gradually subside, and daily activities can be resumed without significant discomfort.
  5. Chronic Whiplash: In some cases, symptoms persist beyond six months, leading to a diagnosis of chronic whiplash. This stage may require ongoing pain management, specialized therapies, and lifestyle modifications.

Whiplash injuries can affect individuals differently and the progression through these stages may vary. We highly recommend seeking prompt medical attention and following a healthcare provider’s recommendations as this can significantly impact the course of recovery.

Documenting symptoms and adhering to treatment plans can also be valuable for insurance claims and legal purposes if the injury resulted from an accident.
