Insurance companies go out of their way to reduce the amount they pay out in insurance claims as much as possible. Part of their campaign is to try and convince the public that low-speed motor vehicle accidents do not result in injuries. But actual medical providers (the people who treat medical injuries for a living) will argue the opposite. Shown in this article is an actual discharge summary from a local Philadelphia hospital given to us by one of our clients recently. According to an this discharge summary:
“Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury. Even a low-speed (5-10 mph) crash with little or no vehicle damage can result in some injury.”
This is clear evidence that the insurnce industry argument that low speed accidents do not cause injury simply does not hold up.
So, who is the more credible party when it comes to accidents and potential injury?
We’ll let you decide.
