Help with soft tissue injuries following a car accident

Unfortunately, a wide range of injuries may be suffered in a car accident, including soft tissue injuries that can worsen over time. As a result, it is essential for car accident victims to be familiar with the signs and symptoms of soft tissue injuries and to understand the personal injury resources available to help victims through a difficult time.

Injuries to the soft areas of the body, including ligaments, tendons and muscles, are referred to as soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries can include sprains, contusions and strains. They can cause the victim to suffer soreness, swelling, bruising and stiffness. These types of injuries result from violent collisions when the victim's body suffers a jolt, such as in a car accident. Whiplash injuries are one of the most common types of injuries suffered in a car accident.

Whiplash occurs when the head moves violently back and forth during a car accident. The full extent of a whiplash or soft tissue injury may not be immediately known and can worsen over time. Symptoms of whiplash include neck stiffness; sharp neck pains; back problems; and cognitive issues, including problems with memory and concentration. Victims of whiplash and soft tissue injuries may need physical therapy or other medical care.

An attorney can help victims recover compensation for their medical expenses incurred while treating soft tissue or whiplash injuries; lost earnings during their time away from work; and other damages they may suffer. A legal claim for damages can provide valuable compensation to assist car accident victims in receiving the help they need.
