Injuries that result from low speed or “minor impact” car accidents are almost always discounted or disregarded by at-fault insurance companies. This is because, regardless of the facts or truth, the nature of the accident gives them a good opportunity to skirt responsibility.
While there may be little property damage to the vehicles in these types of accidents, people who are struck often have injuries. The reason for this is that cars are designed to withstand some impact without damage; however, vehicle occupants who are not anticipating being struck, will often have their back and neck jerked against their seat and headrest.
If you were injured in this type of accident, the at-fault insurance carrier will likely tell you that you could not have been injured in the accident. If that happens you may need the help of a car accident attorney to reach a fair settlement.
