Soft Tissue Injury Lawyer
Injuries sustained in an accident aren’t always immediately apparent. Sometimes you’ll walk away from an accident and you think you were lucky. Then the pain starts a few days later and only gets worse over time. Soft tissue injuries — injuries to muscles, tendons, and ligaments — can be deceptive. You may not think your injury is serious because the pain is delayed, or you got an x-ray that didn’t show anything was wrong. Your doctor may have prescribed you a few pain pills, and you hope that you just need to take it easy for a few days and your injury will clear up on its own. Soft tissues are the tissues that connect various parts of your body. A neck sprain can throw off your natural body alignment and cause you to overcompensate, which in turn can cause other parts of your anatomy to hurt because those muscles are now being overused. You could end up in chronic pain that’s worse than that caused by the original injury.

Common Types of Soft Tissue Injuries
Strains — A strain is similar to a sprain, but involving muscles and tendons instead of ligaments. Like a sprain, a strain can be quite painful and involve a lengthy recovery time. A strain also may affect your quality of life while you’re trying to heal.
Bursitis — Bursitis is when a fluid-filled sac that sits between a bone and a tendon or muscle becomes swollen and irritated. The sac is called a bursa, and you have them in your shoulders, knees, hips, and ankles. Impacts can cause bursa to swell, and swelling can linger for a very long time.
Contusions — Contusion is basically a fancy word for a bruise. Bruises may seem relatively minor, but there could be more serious injuries underneath. When you’re involved in an accident, an impact can cause blood vessels to be damaged or broken. The blood leaking out gives the bruise its appearance.
