Soft Tissue Injuries Do Not Always Appear Immediately

Soft tissue damage is one of the most common injuries sustained by those involved in accidents, especially car wrecks. This includes any type of injury to muscles, ligaments and tendons. Many times, these injuries are not apparent right away, or they worsen significantly with time. But unfortunately, soft tissue damage can be hard to validate and quantify. This leaves insurance companies hesitant to pay out compensation for an injury that cannot be precisely documented. But while these legal claims may be difficult for plaintiffs to win, they are not impossible with the right attorney by your side.

Together, we provide solid legal insight and medical knowledge that ultimately helps us build the successful cases for which we are known.

Clients who come to us have been affected in many different ways due to soft tissue damage. Some require ongoing chiropractic treatment or physical therapy. Others need to take painkillers and muscle relaxers to deal with the excruciating pain. And in the more serious cases, individuals may need surgery to alleviate their symptoms. What remains the same is the victim's right to seek compensation for his or her medical bills, pain and lost wages due to an inability to work.
