WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE? Does it matter if it is a "Low Speed" Collision?
Why would an insurance adjuster tell you "this is only a low speed collision?" It has become commonplace for insurance companies to offer minimal settlement dollars, or no money at all, where they deem the automobile accident to involve "low speeds", or where there is not much visible property damage. The insurance industry created the position years ago that "low speed collisions cannot lead to significant injury", and have successfully argued that position to juries and judges, repeatedly, throughout the country. Is it true? Is there scientific evidence that a low speed collision cannot cause injury? Not everyone thinks so. An experienced Baltimore personalinjury lawyer can help you overcome these types of arguments.
