Soft Tissue Injury and Chronic Pain
The “soft tissues” in your body include such things as muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, organs, and the discs in your spine. An injury to these tissues may not be as easy to identify as a broken bone, but the consequences can be every bit as serious, if not worse.
A very common type of soft tissue injury is referred to as “whiplash” or “whiplash associated disorder”. It is not uncommon for an individual involved in a car accident to be diagnosed with this type of injury.
Sometimes soft tissue injuries don’t heal properly. If that happens, it may lead to chronic pain which can be debilitating. Your injuries do not have to include a broken bone for them to be serious enough to justify an award of compensation to you.
We have helped many individuals receive fair compensation for soft tissue injuries arising from car accidents, cycling accidents, trip or slip and falls, and other types of injury cases. This compensation can include amounts for pain and suffering, loss of income or earnings, housekeeping costs, and costs of medical care.
If you have been injured as a result of the fault of someone else and you are experiencing pain in your neck, back, or anywhere else which is interfering with your ability to complete day to day tasks, you should contact a lawyer without delay.
