Q: Why is it hard to get a settlement in a rear end car accident claim?
A: Rear end accident claims in Florida are the most common types of personal injury cases. Many times those cases settle rather quickly. However, many times it is also difficult to settle those cases. Those cases that are difficult to settle involve situations where there is very little property damage to either of the vehicles involved or where there’s a low-speed impact, many times the collision will occur when the vehicle is traveling about 5 miles per hour.
Also, in most of those cases, the injury claimed is neck or back injuries which are difficult to prove as permanent. In order to recover money for pain and suffering in a Florida automobile negligence case, you must prove that you have a permanent injury. Permanent injuries to necks and backs are oftentimes very, very difficult to prove, even if there’s findings on x-rays and on MRIs because oftentimes it is difficult for a physician to say whether or not the accident caused the changes that are seen on the MRIs or whether those changes are preexisting.
