Injuries from Low-Speed and Rear-Impact Collisions

A Comprehensive Guide to the Literature for Personal Injury Lawyers

One of the most challenging types of cases that personal injury lawyers are routinely called upon to handle is a soft tissue injury sustained during a low-speed rear-impact automobile collision. Because injuries to tendons, ligaments, and muscles in the body cannot typically be demonstrated objectively with diagnostic imaging modalities, such as X-rays or CT scans, it has become increasingly difficult to obtain fair compensation for clients with these hard to prove soft tissue injuries. Seasoned personal injury lawyers have learned that one effective strategy to maximize their chances for success with minimum impact soft tissue cases is to read the literature.

A substantial body of literature has been published in well respected medical journals clearly documenting that minimum impact soft tissue injuries can result in persistent pain and functional limitations that sometimes necessitates long-term, ongoing medical care. Finding these critical supporting articles, however, can be a tricky and time-consuming process. Medifocus Legal has solved this problem by researching the literature and compiling a reference Guide of 113 hand-picked journal articles specifically for personal injury lawyers who frequently must establish a sound argument for causation by linking these minimum impact injuries to the accident.

Injuries from Low-Speed and Rear-Impact Collisions is a one-of-a-kind literature reference Guide that includes:

  • A comprehensive bibliography of 113 journal article references indexed in MEDLINE published in well respected medical and scientific journals.
  • Online access to the abstracts (summaries) of the articles.
  • Online access to the free full-text version of 10 articles.
  • Links to full-text sources of other articles that are available for purchase directly from individual journal publishers.
  • A unique “Author Directory” consisting of the names and institutional affiliations of experts who have published and have specialized knowledge about Injuries from Low-Speed and Rear-Impact Collisions. The “Author Directory” is a valuable resource for quickly identifying and locating experts for case reviews, opinions, and testimony.
