A Low Speed Car Accident Can Still Cause Serious Injuries in Maryland
A low speed car accident occurs when a negligent driver traveling between 1 – 25 miles per hour hits your vehicle.
Personal Injury Attorneys refer to these types of cases as fender benders, or soft tissue injury claims. However, a car collision powerful enough to cause any damage, even if minimal, is powerful enough to cause injuries.
Problems with a low speed accident
A low speed car accident can be a difficult personal injury case for you and your attorney. The insurance companies love denying these claims because the property damage and injuries are minor.
Minor property damage
Many insurance adjusters have a hard time believing that you are injured when there is little to no damage to your car. This misunderstanding that damage to your car has anything to do with your injuries makes it difficult to collect a fair and reasonable settlement.
Soft tissue injuries
There is no doubt that individuals involved in a low speed car accident develop a whiplash neck injury. However, these soft tissue injuries are hard to objectively quantify. The insurance adjusters believe these injuries to be fake due to the significant subjective complaints of the injured party.
