10 Common Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries involve damage to the body’s ligaments, tendons or muscles. They can occur as the result of a single incident, such as a slip and fall accident, or they may develop over time.
10 Examples of Soft Tissue Injuries
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we help clients with injury claims covering a wide range of injuries. Some of the most common types of soft tissue injuries include:
- Back strains and sprains
- Torn ligaments in the knees, shoulders and ankles
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Myofascial pain (myalgia)
Determining Compensation Options for Damages
If your injury is the result of an incident for which another party may be legally responsible, you might be able to file a negligence claim to pursue compensation for your damages. In these types of claims, you might be eligible for a wide range of damages in addition to lost wages and medical benefits.
To determine exactly what options might apply to your case or for assistance with the claims process, enlist the services of a legal professional.
The Difficulty in Proving Soft Tissue Injury Claims
Given that these types of injuries are notably difficult to document medically, adequately proving the claims can be challenging.
Whiplash doesn’t show up on an X-ray in the same way a broken bone does. There is no medical evaluation that can accurately gauge and medically prove your back pain. Proving you’re actually and substantially hurt might take legal and medical expertise.
