Soft Tissue Injuries: A Serious Injury in Disguise

When you are involved in an accident, you may suffer various types of injuries, ranging in severity depending on the gravity of the impact. Although broken bones or fractured skulls may be more demanding of monetary compensation, other injuries that may not be visible to the eyes, such as soft tissue injuries, can be just as painful and deserve just compensation.

The Deceiving Soft Tissue Injury

It is common for insurance adjusters to attempt to downplay soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash. One reason for this is that soft tissue injuries are not easily seen on x-rays and can therefore be disputed much easier by the adjusters.

However, just because soft tissue injuries may not be visible to the eyes or digital imaging, it does not mean that they are any less painful or deserve less compensation. A soft tissue injury is still an injury, regardless of how its symptoms present itself. As such, negligent parties who cause such injuries must be held accountable for their harmful actions.

The Symptoms of Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries are injury to the ligaments, tendons or the muscles caused by an impact to the victim. Symptoms may not surface immediately following an accident. In fact symptoms of most soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, may take several days or even weeks to surface.

Some common symptoms of soft tissue injuries include:

  • Stiffness
  • Pain and inhibited mobility in the affected area
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation

If you or a loved one has been in an accident and suffer any of these symptoms, you should immediately consult a physician.
