Default Rear ended in parking lot...anything to worry about?

My sister got rear ended in her 2002 (I think) Outback Limited sedan. I don't think there is any visible damage except for some scratches and scuffs. Is there anything internal that might need to be replaced as far as bumper shocks (don't know if they have them) and mounts go?

PS: I tried searching but the search function was down and the google search returned nothing useful.

If everything LOOKS ok (mainly no misalignment of the bumper or cracks in the body), you're most likely in good shape. If you're worried about it, get the rear end of the car up off the ground and check in behind the rear bumper to see if anything came loose. I believe all that is really between the bumper and frame is a couple pieces of reinforcement foam (styrofoam basically).

How fast was the car going that rear ended her?

If it wasn't too fast, and it was a square hit, you don't have too much to worry about. Crawl under and take a look, make sure nothing is cracked or obviously warped/out of place. Other than that not much to do.

Ok, thanks for the replies and I think the person that hit here was going about 5mph.

If it was only 5mph and pretty dead on, I think you should be all set!
