3 Reasons You Should Take Your Soft Tissue Injury Seriously
Soft tissue injuries typically happen during a low-impact automobile collision. These injuries can be minor and severe, sometimes even life threatening. While many people tend to believe a small collision is not that serious, accident victims can sometimes suffer permanent, debilitating injuries. Soft tissue injuries tend to happen in your body’s ligaments, tendons, and muscle fibers. Nerve damage is also a common soft tissue injury. Below, we explain why you should take your soft tissue injury seriously.
Reason #1: Elusive Symptoms
Symptoms vary depending on the location and severity of the injury. Generally, soft tissue injuries are not immediately visible. Although you might be able to feel your injury, you can’t necessarily rely on visual markers to identify all of your symptoms. However, neck pain, jaw pain, tingling in the shoulders, and blurry vision can all be indicators of a severe soft tissue injury. It’s important that you seek medical attention to help determine the full extent of your injury.
Reason #2: Affects Bodily Functions
Soft tissue helps support your bones and muscles. When blood builds around soft tissue, it can lead to permanent damage. Severe soft tissue damage can affect your ability to control your hands, arms, legs and feet.
Reason #3: Issues of Liability
If your soft tissue injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you might be entitled to financial compensation. You should speak with our personal injury attorney to determine what parties can be held responsible for your pain and suffering. Soft tissue injury cases can be hard to prove because it’s difficult to document the presence of pain or suffering with absolute certainty. An experienced attorney can assist with documenting your injuries.
