Low-Impact, Low-Speed Accidents & Injuries
They’re misleading terms. Low-impact. Low-speed. They imply that, because the speed and impact are not at a high level, the damage is minimal. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Low-impact and low-speed accidents and collisions can actually inflict quite a bit of damage and cause significant injuries. Some can even result in long-term damage if not taken care of properly.
What Types of Injuries?
Among the many injuries that can result from accidents at speeds of just ten mph or lower are:
- Seat belt bruises
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Back and neck injuries
- Head injury
Even at the seemingly low speed of 10 mph or less, a body can be jolted violently enough to cause any of these types of injuries and many others. And if you’ve suffered from whiplash, a strain, or a back injury, you know just how painful these injuries are.
