Whiplash may have serious effects on the health and well-being of the person who suffers from it. The debility from the injury may last for only a short time, or it might remain permanently.
Whiplash is the common name for the situation that occurs when the body is subjected to a high-velocity impact that causes the head to whip violently back and forth. This causes tremendous stress to the skeletal systems and musculature of the head and neck.
A wide variety of negative physical effects may result from a whiplash injury. Some of these effects commonly take a day or two to manifest. There is no scientific consensus as to why onset of symptoms is so often delayed. Issues from whiplash may include headache, pain at the base of the neck, nausea, vertigo, blurred vision and other consequences of greater severity.

The defendant or defendants may choose to settle the suit with the plaintiffs, paying a sum of money in exchange for dropping the suit, or they may choose to take it to trial and allow the court to make a decision.
