A soft-tissue injury usually comes in the form of a sprain or strain of a tendon or muscle in the body. Soft-tissue injuries can be very painful and can require extensive healing time and physical therapy. If you have been injured in an accident and sustained a soft-tissue injury, you should speak with our attorneys about filing a claim.
Soft tissue consists of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Any area of the body can have a soft-tissue injury, but some of the most common areas are the legs, arms, back and neck. In a car accident, many victims suffer back and neck soft-tissue injuries, but can also sprain or strain their ankles, knees, shoulders and many other body parts. While some soft-tissue injuries get better on their own, many require medical treatment. When a car-accident victim has a soft-tissue injury, they often require pain medication, icing of the affected areas, rest and elevation of the affected areas, and potentially chiropractic therapy or physical therapy. Insurance companies for car accidents and other types of accidents will try to downplay the victim's injury in an effort to minimize the settlement paid out. If you have suffered a soft-tissue injury, you need a Georgia personal-injury lawyer who understands your injury and will fight to get you the maximum injury settlement.
Car accidents are not the sole cause of soft-tissue accidents. A person can sustain serious injuries in slip-and-fall accidents, work accidents, construction accidents or other types of accidents. These all have the potential to cause soft-tissue injury in the neck, back, legs, arms or other parts of the body. If you have suffered a soft-tissue injury in a car accident or other type of accident, you need a dedicated Georgia personal-injury law firm to help you get a settlement for your soft-tissue injury claim.
