Motor vehicle accidents range in severity from a minor fender-bender to a catastrophic accident with serious damages. Although injuries resulting from major accidents are easy to justify, many people fail to realize that victims can also suffer fairly serious and sometimes long-lasting bodily injuries from relatively low-speed accidents.
If you were injured in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, you should consult with an personal injury attorney regardless of the severity of your accident. There is no reason why you should financially suffer from an accident that was caused by another negligent driver.
Low Speed Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries, Too!
Surprisingly, it isn’t just the major collisions that can cause serious injury to the victims. Even low-speed accidents can expose motorists or passengers or pedestrians to bodily injuries. In other words, just like we should not judge a book by its cover, we should not judge a car accident victim’s injuries by the physical damage evident on the vehicle.
Some common injuries suffered in low speed motor vehicle accidents include:
- Back injuries
- Shoulder and neck pains
- Pain in legs or arms
- Car seat belt injuries
Even if you do not feel injured after a low speed accident, it is important to seek medical attention. Symptoms of certain medical conditions, especially those suffered in low impact accidents, can take days or even weeks to surface. A thorough medical examination following an accident may reveal the onset of these medical conditions. The earlier you seek treatment, the sooner you will recover. Immediate medical treatment is also important in protecting your legal rights and obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled.
