A low-speed collision is an auto accident where one or more vehicles was travelling less than fifteen miles per hour.
In a California a low-speed collision with undisputed liability occurred when a Defendant turns right into Plaintiff’s car. The low-speed collision resulted in back injuries and years of treatment for back pain and finally disc surgery.
Plaintiff and Defendant were stopped at a Sacramento red light, side by side. The light phased green and Defendant attempted to turn right, hitting Plaintiff’s car. Both testified that the collision was at 5-10 mph. Property damage to Plaintiff’s car was $1,200. Property damage to Defendant’s car was $800. Plaintiff was a belted front seat passenger. That plaintiff suffered from ongoing back pain due to injury during the accident.
Defendant admitted liability and disputed extent and causation of injuries. That Plaintiff’s ultimate disc surgery was unrelated to the accident.
Plaintiff developed back pain a few days after the accident and was seen by a doctor a few days thereafter. Plaintiff was referred to physical therapy and she also saw a chiropractor. A few months later, she was referred to a doctor for low back pain who recommended conservative care of more physical therapy, which Plaintiff underwent at various times for the next 3 ½ yrs. One physical therapist said when he finished with her she was pain free, and able to engage in all activities, so surgery was avoided. Ultimately Plaintiff returned to her doctor for single level disc surgery (L5/S1 disc).
