If I have a car accident and get whiplash, can I sue?
Depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding your car accident, you may be able to bring a lawsuit for your injuries, including whiplash.

Does whiplash occur right away at the accident?

While whiplash may manifest symptoms immediately after an accident, in many cases symptoms do not show up until a significant amount of time passes. For this reason, it is important to visit a doctor as soon as possible after your auto accident to be evaluated.

If I am in a car accident while driving and have a passenger in the car, can he or she sue me?

Yes, a passenger can sue a driver of a car if the driver acts in a negligent fashion.

If I am injured in a hit and run car accident, do I have any recourse if they cannot find the driver who injured me?

If you are injured in a hit and run, you may be able to collect for your injuries under your insurance policy.

What are my rights if an uninsured person hits me?

If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you can file a claim for your damages. While this coverage is optional, it is a good idea to invest in it.
