Q
Why is it important if the insurance company calls your car accident case a MIST, M.I.S.T. or MinorImpact Soft Tissue Case?

  If your car accident is classified as a MIST Case then the insurance company will make a minimum offer to settle your case.  They will argue that you could not have been injured.  They may even tell you they will not pay for any medical care at all.  This is because they feel that many juries will look at the damage to your car and say that you could not have been injured.  The car insurance companies have made a decision to make low offers on these cases in order to get many injured people not to pursue these types of car accident cases.  They know that many lawyers and attorneys will not file a lawsuit on these types of cases, and that many will not even take these types of car accident cases at all.
     We do accept these types of car accident cases in our office.  However, it is even more critical that you do not do any thing else to hurt your case if you have a Minor Impact Soft Tissue Injury Case.  We know that the amount of property damage does not determine how hurt you were in your car accident.
