Low Impact Collisions and Injury
Many Insurance companies and their supposedly independent medical research hold that whiplash type injuries can’t occur in low speed collisions. However, simulated impacts at low and high speeds have been studied thoroughly and the results confirm that low speed collisions with minimal or no visible damage to a vehicle can cause significant injury to the head and neck of the passengers in the impacted vehicle. In fact, it has been shown that high speeds are not even especially important in determining the extent of the whiplash type injuries sustained in the collision. Whether you were injured in a low or high speed collision, the important thing is to get quick medical attention and treatment, and to call our law office soon after the collision to insure that your legal rights are fully protected.
