What Are Soft Tissue Injuries in Auto Accidents?

Soft tissue injuries in auto accidents 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 in auto accidents can take many different injury forms including;

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs in the spine
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Sprains and muscle strain
  • Hernias
  • 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 Soft Tissue Injuries in Auto Accidents

Due to the internal nature of soft tissue injuries in auto accidents, 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 in auto accidents 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 in auto accidents 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 in auto accidents and represent your injuries in the right way to secure the compensation that truly reflects your ongoing pain and injuries.

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!
