What Are the Symptoms of Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common injury following a motor vehicle accident.  What are the common symptoms of whiplash?  Well,  freeadvice.com offers  a good answer to this question.  Here it is:

"Symptoms of whiplash can vary, but the more common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, persistent neck pain and stiffness for weeks, months, even years, and numbness or a “pins-and-needles” sensation in the arms. If you suspect you have suffered a whiplash injury, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. You will want to make sure that the doctor determines the degree, depth and length of the injury as well as the pain generated. The specifics by the doctor — and why — are absolutely vital in establishing the value of your whiplash injury claim. A simple notation on the doctor’s records of “whiplash” does not carry much weight at settlement time."
