Have those in my lower back so no biggie other than they hurt/will be an ongoing medical issue from here on out..
If anyone has safeco insurance I would drop them fast. That is what the kid had and it has been a non-stop fight with them for everything. They canceled the rental car 5 times and it took my lawyer making threats to get it extended. They canceled it again last wed leaving me without a car to get anywhere. Supposedly the check for my car is "in the mail" yeah I believe that. Totally unprofessional and jerks on the phone.
I am a former chiropractor and you/your lawyer should go after everything they can get out of the other guys insurance and the other driver as well. You have EDIT sustained very serious biomechanical defects, c5/6 and c6/7 discs, that may lead to permanent nerve compression and other chronic problems. You have suffered from neurologic deficits. Only time will tell if non-invasive measures or surgery will provide relief.
You need to consult with either a competent chiropractor or a neurologist. I mean it.
YOU HAVE SUFFERED A SEVERE, SEVERE WHIPLASH INJURY.
