Recovering Compensation For Soft Tissue Injuries
The most common injury from accidents is to the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments or tendons) of the body. Often referred to as strains or sprains, soft tissue injuries to the back, neck or shoulders can result in severe and chronic pain and swelling.
Almost any type of trauma to the body can have the effect of causing a soft tissue injury. Strains and/or sprains can result from lifting a heavy object or from a slip-and-fall injury. Soft tissue injury can also result from the whiplash motion such as that which occurs in a motor vehicle crash.
What Is A Soft Tissue Injury?
The most frequent soft tissue injuries are:
- Neck sprains
- Back strains and back sprains
- Ankle strains and ankle sprains
- Knee strains and knee sprains
- Shoulder strains and shoulder sprains
Injuries to the muscles, ligaments and tendons are generally treated with physical therapy, massage therapy and chiropractic manipulation. Pain medications and anti-inflammatory medications are also commonly prescribed to individuals suffering from soft tissue injuries.
Proving The Existence Of An Injury
Because it is difficult to prove the presence of a soft tissue injury from diagnostic testing, insurance companies often dispute the extent of suffering that results from these types of injuries. To ensure that you are properly compensated for all of your pain and suffering resulting from a soft tissue injury, you need an experienced soft tissue injury attorney at your side.
