Car accidents cause many different types of injuries, from broken bones to burns to soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries to parts of your body that aren’t bone, such as muscle, ligaments, and tendons. Because soft tissues surround and protect the bones, they are often the first part of the body to be injured in an accident.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries will vary in intensity depending on the severity of your accident and victims commonly complain of discomfort and pain in the form of soreness, swelling, and stiffness. The most common soft tissue injuries sustained in a car accident include:
- Strains-overuse of muscles or tendons
- Sprains-damage to ligaments due to overextension
While soft tissue injuries are the most common injury sustained, they are also one of the most difficult to prove because symptoms are often invisible to the naked eye, mostly undetectable by medical testing, can take time to present themselves, and are often difficult to treat. Pain and treatments may be ongoing and expensive, and insurance companies may be hesitant to believe your claim or feel that you are exaggerating for a larger claim payout.
If you’ve been injured in an accident and suffered a soft tissue injury, you should not only keep all your medical records and follow all of your doctor’s treatment instructions, but you should also consider hiring an experienced attorney to help with your claim.
