I believe I suffered soft tissue damage in a car accident. What should I do?

Soft tissue injuries are a very common result of automobile accidents. Soft tissue injuries include damage, such as sprains, strains, tears and soreness to the tendons, muscles and ligaments. Car accidents often cause damage to the body’s soft tissues because of the crash impact and the sudden jolting of the body. That impact can cause soft tissues to stretch, which frequently results in damage. That damage can include pain, limited mobility and swelling.

A big problem with soft tissue injuries is they are hard to diagnose. They can’t be found on an x-ray. It typically takes several hours, or sometimes even days, for a car accident victim to experience symptoms of a soft tissue injury. That means it can take time for victims to get the proper treatment. This also means that often accident victims with soft tissue injuries are viewed skeptically by the opposing parties in an accident case.

Whiplash is a very common type of soft tissue injury. Whiplash occurs when a person is in a vehicle that is hit from the rear, causing the head of the accident victim to jerk forward and back, causing a lot of pressure on the neck. Some symptoms of whiplash include headaches, neck pain, stiffness, and sometimes shoulder and back pain. Whiplash can cause spinal damage, joint problems and constant pain.

Automobile accident victims who suffer soft tissue injuries due to another driver’s negligence can recover money for medical expenses, pain and suffering and more. If you believe you have suffered soft tissues injuries, such as whiplash, in an automobile accident, contact accident attorney Kris Barber of the Barber Law Firm  to learn more about protecting your legal rights.
