What is a soft tissue injury?
A soft tissue injury occurs when there is physical trauma to the skin, tendons, or muscles. This does not necessarily mean that there has to be a complete fracture, but any type of injury to these body parts and tissues are considered a soft tissue injury. Oftentimes, soft tissue injuries are mistaken for internal organ damage. Internal organ damage is any type of damage to the brain, stomach, and heart. Soft tissue injuries are so much more common than many people think. Oftentimes, victims who suffer soft-tissue injuries do not even know that they have the right to file a lawsuit against the negligent party who has caused their injuries.
Our accident attorneys advise that you seek immediate medical care after being involved in any type of accident because soft tissue injuries are very common and require immediate medical assistance. If you fail to see a doctor after suffering a soft tissue injury, it may be used against you in a future lawsuit, and your injuries may be aggravated.
What causes soft tissue injuries?
Soft-tissue injuries can happen in any different type of accident, and the two main causes are:
- Acute: this occurs when there is a blunt trauma to the soft tissue. For example, a slip-and-fall could cause acute abrupt injuries to soft tissue.
- Overuse: this occurs when there is constant use of the soft tissue, and because of the repetitive movements, the soft tissue is worn out. This is most common in workplace accidents, such as construction accidents. An example of overuse injuries are tendonitis and bursitis.
What should I do after suffering a soft tissue injury?
After experiencing an accident, our top rated accident attorneys recommend that you contact the police immediately to have a police report written up to have a record of the accident. The police report will specify who the parties are, along with where the accident occurred. We then suggest that you seek medical care immediately to have your damages diagnosed. We also recommend that you document your injuries as much as possible. For example, collect all your medical bills and treatment bills, and keep a daily journal discussing the different types of activities you are now unable to do after your injuries.
After suffering a soft tissue injury, our attorneys advise that you:
- Rest: rest is one of the most critical parts of soft tissue injury healing. The more you physically rest, the sooner you’ll be able to resume back to normal life.
- Ice: ice your soft tissue injury comment as recommended by your doctor.
- Elevate: elevate your injuries if you have experienced soft tissue injury to your lower body.
What are the different types of soft tissue injury?
- Sprains: Sprains occur when a ligament is stretched and / or torn. Sprains are most likely to occur at the ankles or at the wrists.
- Strains: Strains occur when there’s any type of injury to a muscle. Symptoms of a strain are muscle spasms and inflammation. Usually, car accidents can cause abrupt force that may lead to strains.
- Contusions: Another word for contusions are bruises. This occurs when there is a blunt force by a large object. Very severe bruises can cause blood pooling around the bruise. Although many people may think a bruise is just a minor injury, there may be several internal problems that need to be reviewed by a medical provider.
