What Are Soft Tissue Injuries?
Soft tissue injuries are any type of injury that can develop after a sudden impact accident and affects muscle, ligament, and soft tissues as opposed to bones. Soft tissue injuries can take many different injury forms including;
- Herniated discs in the spine
- Rotator cuff tears
- Sprains and muscle strain
- Nerve damage such as pinched or compressed nerves
The most common soft tissue injuries from auto accidents is whiplash due to seatbelts being positioned across the body in such a way that on impact necks and spines tend to take the full force. With soft tissue injuries, the injuries tend to show themselves up to 10 days after the actual incident and are often longer-term medical ailments that need further treatment and ongoing rehab.
Soft tissue injuries can also start to build up medical costs as they typically need more investigative work from a specialist accident doctor as well as ongoing procedures such as MRI scans and even rehab treatments.
How to Prove a Soft Tissue Injury
Due to the internal nature of a soft tissue injury, it can be harder to prove the injury is there and happened as a direct result of a car accident. An experienced accident attorney will however know how to prove soft tissue injuries and will guide you through the kind of evidence to gather that will help your case;
- Medical records– Your doctor’s recommendations and notes as well as any treatments you’ve had so far will help create a picture of ongoing injuries
- Test results– Any evidence, scan imagery and results from tests you’ve had will also help prove ongoing injuries
- Pictures of the crash– Images of your accident are some of the best forms of evidence too as a court will be able to see the extent of injuries caused by the accident scene
- Pictures of bruising- Of course, if your soft tissue injuries have manifested in bruising or physical marks taking photographs will also help provide sufficient evidence for your accident claim
Your accident attorney can help build the right evidence source for proving soft tissue injuries and represent your injuries in the right way to secure the compensation that truly reflects your ongoing pain and injuries.
