What is Low Velocity Impact in Personal Injury claims?
Many people falsely assume that simply proving liability in a road traffic accident case is enough to ensure that the client will receive their financial compensation. However, this is not always the case. After proving liability, and successfully establishing that the other party involved was at fault for the accident, it is also necessary to prove that the road traffic accident itself was the definitive cause for the injuries that have been sustained. Whether it is a twisted knee injury, a broken leg injury, a fractured arm, or a whiplash claim, this is a key part of the process.
As a part of this process, the other party, or the defendant, may sometimes attempt to use a Low Velocity Impact (LVI) allegation to suggest that the force of the road traffic accident was not significant enough to cause the injuries at hand.
At this point, it is therefore up to the claimant and their legal representation to prove that the collision and road traffic accident was actually the cause of their injuries.
