What is a typical settlement amount for a low-speed rear-end collision injury case?

As a personal injury attorney, I often get asked about the average settlement amount for low-speed rear-end collision injury cases. While every case is unique and the amount of compensation can vary based on a variety of factors, there are some general guidelines that can be helpful in understanding what to expect.

When it comes to low-speed rear-end collisions, the amount of compensation is typically lower than for higher-speed collisions. However, that does not mean that obtaining compensation is unimportant. Some of the factors that can impact the settlement amount include:

  • The severity of the injuries: While rare in low speed crashes, the injuries sustained are severe, such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, the compensation amount will likely be higher.
  • Medical expenses: If the medical expenses associated with the injuries are high, the settlement amount is often higher.
  • Pain and suffering: This is a more subjective factor and is based on the level of pain and suffering that was experienced as a result of the injuries.

In general, low-speed rear-end collision injury cases can result in settlements ranging from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. In some rare cases, the settlement amount can exceed $100,000, depending on the severity of the injuries and the impact they have had on the victim’s life.

It’s important to note that every case is different, and the settlement amount will depend on the specific facts of your case. That’s why it’s always best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can provide you with a more accurate estimate of what your case may be worth.
