Whiplash Injuries Lawyer

One of the most common injuries in vehicle accidents is whiplash. The impact of hitting another car or being rear-ended by a vehicle can throw the head forward and backward, creating the “whip” effect that can strain the soft tissues in the neck. Whiplash injuries can be painful and require ongoing treatment for months and even years after the accident. If you are diagnosed with whiplash after a wreck, it is important that you receive compensation to cover your expenses.

Whiplash can be a tricky injury. Many people who have whiplash may not feel the pain right away. It is common for people in wrecks to insist they are not injured and refuse medical treatment. However, whiplash symptoms may not appear until a few days later. It is important to be examined by a physician after a severe accident, even if you are not in pain. Diagnosis of whiplash right away can help improve your treatment and help you with your insurance claims down the road.

Expenses Related to Whiplash Injuries

Insurance companies often fight against paying what is fair for a whiplash injury. It is common for a low settlement amount to be offered to close the claim. A quick settlement is almost never in the best interest of the injured person but is a way for insurance companies to save money. It is important to compile all the expenses that may be related to a whiplash injury, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing treatment
  • Lost earnings or income
  • Pain and suffering

All these factors need to be considered and added in to the final settlement amount for your injury. It is worthwhile to have an attorney that will fight for every penny you deserve for your whiplash injury.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.9 / 5.0

Based on 19 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
