When most people think of a soft tissue injury, they think of minor pain and a condition that will heal quickly. However, soft tissue injuries can be serious.
A catastrophic car, truck or motorcycle accident can lead to painful injuries and a long road to recovery. When you are severely injured in an accident, you lose the ability to participate in daily activities, including work, playing with your children and exercising. If you have been told that you have a soft tissue injury, don’t make the mistake of believing that it might not be serious.
Insurance companies commonly make the argument that soft tissue injuries are minor and in no way disabling. Some soft tissue injuries can be severe and include herniated discs, ruptured discs and bulging discs. Occasionally, the spine will be so significantly damaged that it becomes displaced, causing excruciating pain. People with these types of injuries have been known to feel pain in the upper and lower extremities and experience incapacitating headaches. Surgery is sometimes the only option to relieve the pain.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, motorcycle accident or car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. When negligence causes your injuries, you can pursue damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost income and mental anguish. It is not uncommon to experience a financial hardship following an accident, but as the victim, you should not have to bear the burden of someone else’s mistake.
