Whiplash is a painful injury caused by a violent and rapid back and forth movement of the neck. It takes its name from this motion, which is like the cracking of a whip.
If another party’s negligence caused the accident that led to your whiplash injury, you may deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more. A Tampa whiplash injury lawyer with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you seek financial awards.

You may be able to win compensation for your whiplash-related expenses and your pain and suffering
Treating whiplash can be a long and expensive process. Diagnosis of the condition may require X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. You may need physical therapy, chiropractic care, medications, and other interventions to treat your pain and regain your mobility. Severe cases of whiplash may require surgery.
You should not have to pay for costly treatments if your accident was not your fault. A Tampa whiplash injury lawyer from our firm can help you fight for awards to pay for your medical bills and future health care needs related to your injury. You may also seek compensation for wages you lost because of work missed due to your accident and recovery.
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, whiplash can lead to a host of complications, including:
- Pain and/or numbness in the arms, hands, and shoulder
- Ringing in the ears
- Problems with memory and concentration
While most whiplash sufferers recover from these symptoms within several weeks or months, some victims experience chronic pain and headaches for years.
The side effects of a painful and enduring injury can lead to depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, stress, and mental anguish. You may be able to receive pain and suffering damages to compensate you for these conditions and other ways your injury has reduced your overall quality of life.

Whiplash Injury Liability
There are many types of accidents that may cause whiplash. In order to win compensation, you must prove that your accident was the result of another party’s negligent behavior. Liable parties may include:
A business, home, or property owner
If a slip and fall, assault caused by negligent security, or another type of accident on someone else’s property caused your injury, an attorney with our firm can help you with a premises liability claim.
In the case of a slip and fall, negligent property conditions such as torn carpeting, loose floorboards, or poor snow and ice removal could all prove negligence. If your accident resulted from negligent security, proof may include failure on the part of the property owner to secure their premises.
A negligent driver
If a car accident caused your whiplash, another driver could be responsible for your damages. Negligent driving behaviors include reckless driving, distracted driving, driving drowsy, speeding, tailgating, and driving while intoxicated. Other liable parties in a car accident case may include a vehicle or vehicle parts manufacturer or the owner of the roadway where your accident occurred.
These are not the only potentially liable parties or examples of negligence. Every case is different. A Tampa whiplash injury lawyer with our firm can examine your case to determine liability and your available options for seeking compensation.
Evidence of liability
Whatever the cause of your whiplash injury, your attorney will attempt to prove your accident was not your fault using:
- Medical records
- Accident and police reports (if applicable)
- Eyewitness statements
- Testimony from experts
- Photographs, videos, and surveillance footage
