Fender benders usually refer to low-speed rear-end accidents. These accidents happen often, and most people will experience at least one in their lifetime. However, the misconception about these accidents is that they aren’t very serious. While that might be true for some, it isn’t the case for all. People tend to believe that because the property damage incurred is usually low, they don’t have a strong case. However, your car isn’t the only thing that can be damaged in these accidents.
One of the most common injuries that occur in accidents is “whiplash.” This happens when soft tissues in the neck are strained from a sudden or sharp movement. Accidents, even very minor ones, can cause your head to “whip” back and cause this injury. It can be extremely painful and restrict your movement. Treating whiplash can be expensive and can require months if not years of physical therapy to correct. But this isn’t the only injury you might get from an accident.
People can get back, chest, and even head injuries in low impact accidents. If you have been in an accident, it’s always best to be safe and see your physician. Even the most minor accidents need to be taken seriously. At the moment, you might feel fine. However, most of the time you won’t notice that something is wrong till days, if not weeks later. If you have been injured during a low-speed collision, you should seek legal advice right away. A lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve, and ensure your medical expenses are taken care of.
