I was in an accident, got whiplash, (without airbag deploying) and 2 weeks later was diagnosed with vitreous hemorrhage, with retnal detachment and have had 3 surgeries. The insurance company says it is not related-but I never had eye problems until the accident. Can anyone help with any proof that whiplash can cause this?

You would need to find an Eye clinic and have yourself evaluated.Best.Frui.I know what you are dealing with- my Mom almost died in a car accident over 10 years ago.I'll keep you in my prayers.

  • your retina surgeon is the best to comment on this (and provide you assistance with your insurance company).
