Low Speed Accidents
Low speed car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents often result in soft tissue injuries like whiplash, concussions, bone fractures, lacerations, back injuries such as herniated discs, and other ligament and muscle injuries. The injuries can initially seem minor. But with many soft tissue injuries, problems and complications can come up weeks and even months after the injury.
Who should pay?
With injuries caused by low speed car accidents, the important question isn’t who should pay, but how much should be paid. Because soft tissue injuries take time to manifest, the extent of the damage-and the costs associated with that damage-can be initially unclear. What seems like minor swelling and inflammation now can turn into nerve or muscle damage that can cost you future medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages if you are unable to do your job.
Low speed accident experience that you can trust.
At Scott W. Schiff & Associates in Columbus, Ohio, our soft tissue injury attorneys and low speed accident attorneys have invaluable knowledge and experience that can help protect you from settling an insurance claim before you understand the full extent and cost of your injuries. Insurance companies may push you to settle a claim quickly. But it’s important that you do not sign or agree to any insurance company settlement or provide any statements before you consult both an attorney and a medical specialist. If you do settle a claim early, you may not be able to seek additional compensation for future medical bills or other financial losses associated with your injury.
Scott and our car accident lawyers can also protect you from the shortcomings of Colossus. Colossus is a popular software program used by many insurance companies to settle personal injury claims. At Scott W. Schiff & Associates, we believe there are serious flaws with Colossus that can prevent you from receiving the full amount of compensation you deserve, and we are experienced in arguing against Colossus in negotiations with insurers and in the courtroom.
