Soft Tissue Injury

Encino Soft Tissue Injury Attorneys

Award-Winning Legal Team Fighting for Injury Clients

Soft tissue injuries involve damage to muscles, ligaments, skin, and tendons as opposed to bones or organs. These injuries can include bruises, burns, sprains, and strains that occur from various types of impacts or accidents. They are often the result of car accidents or other types of accidents in which the individual’s body and limbs are commonly damaged through crashes and collisions with other vehicles, objects, the roadway, or ground. While these injuries may not sound serious, they can be extremely painful, put one out of work, require medical attention, and take weeks or months to heal. In the case of burns, they can be very serious requiring expert medical care by professionals trained to specifically handle them and their dangers.

Vahdat & Associates has the legal experience you need when making a personal injury claim based on simple to complex soft tissue damage. We understand that these injuries can sideline you for months, during which time you may suffer financial losses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. Because our firm only handles personal injury law, we are deeply familiar with California law, the claims process, and how to construct strong cases that can lead to maximum compensation to cover all of your damages and losses. We are not afraid to forcefully stand up to insurance companies in negotiation or litigation when they try to pressure victims into accepting settlements that are far less than what a case is worth.

Soft Tissue Injury Claims

The most common soft tissue injury claim is based on whiplash. This injury typically occurs in rear-end collisions when your head and neck are forcefully jerked forward and back. This whiplash motion can strain or even tear the tendons and muscles in the neck. Whiplash victims can suffer for months, requiring ongoing treatment and rehabilitation to help their recovery. Whiplash can lead to severe headaches, inability to hold one’s head erect, weakness, and fatigue. The severity and duration of symptoms will depend on the force and duration of the impact that led to the injury.

Common causes for whiplash and other soft tissue injuries include:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Truck accidents
  • Sporting event accidents
  • Falls
  • Physical assaults

Other soft tissue injuries can be the result of the forceful overextending of joints or muscles beyond a normal range of motion. This can result in sprains and strains. Injuries such as bruises and contusions can be caused by blunt force contact with another person or object. Nerve damage is another form of soft tissue injury that may lead to a valid personal injury claim. Symptoms of any soft tissue injury can including pain, swelling, bleeding under the skin, inflammation, and the inability to put any weight on the injured area.

Soft tissue injury claims are often more difficult to prove as these types of injuries cannot be verified by common x-rays. Having the correct medical documentation will generally be needed to support your claim for an efficient and timely settlement.

Liability in Soft Tissue Injury Cases

As in any personal injury case, claims involving soft tissue injury are based on the fact that another person or party acted in a negligent or deliberately harmful manner that caused the injury. In a car accident, this is typically another driver. However, the other negligent party could be a car manufacturer or car parts manufacturer responsible for a faulty car component, such as a defective seatbelt. Determining all parties who caused or contributed to your injuries can often be a complex matter which is why it is best to have professional legal help.
