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.
 

Soft Tissue Injuries and Car Insurance Claims

​When you’ve been injured in a car crash or another type of accident, soft tissue injuries are very common. They’re also among the injury types that insurance companies fight the hardest. The insurance company’s viewpoint is on soft tissue injury claims is to try and deny that you’re injured, or try to minimize your injury by saying it was only “soft tissue,” or that your pain is caused by some other medical condition other than your accident. Therefore, establishing a soft tissue injury through documented medical diagnosis is as important part of your insurance claim. Documentation of your injuries is important, and critical for you to start seeing a physician as soon as you start to experience symptoms after your accident. With solid documentation, our experienced car accident attorneys can help you pursue a claim for your injury.

Common Symptoms of Soft Tissue Injuries

The follow are some of the common symptoms associated with soft tissue injuries:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Headaches
  • Stiffness
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Pain
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Tiredness
  • Difficulty concentrating

Common Types of Soft Tissue Injuries

Sprains — A sprain is the stretching or tearing of a ligament. This usually results in pain and swelling. A torn ligament can take a long time to heal and have a significant effect on your range of motion. This kind of injury may impede your ability to drive, work, play with your children, or perform daily household tasks.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.
