How can a dedicated attorney help you?
Soft tissue is muscle 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 NYC
personal injury lawyer who understands your injury and who will fight to get you maximum
soft tissue injury settlement.
There are many different causes of soft tissue injuries. In a car accident,
the force on the neck and back from the abrupt movement on a car on impact
cause severe strain on the muscles and bones in the back and neck. This
particularly dangerous in high speed accidents or rear-end accidents,
which put an unnatural stress on the body. Victims of the injuries can
sustain more serious neck and back injuries depending on the location
of their head and neck at the time of impact.
One example of a type of accident that causes severe neck pain in many
drivers is when a driver is merging onto an adjacent road, looking over
their shoulder, and they are rear-ended by another vehicle. The position
of the head and neck at the time of impact can cause serious soft tissue
damage to the driver. 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.
