whiplashOne of the most common types of injuries associated with car accidents are soft tissue injuries. Not only are soft tissue injuries resulting from a car accident serious because of the significant pain they can inflict on the victim, but this type of injury can also lead to costly medical bills, loss of income, and long-lasting debilitating pain. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, soft tissue injuries, which includes back pain, ligament and tendon injuries, and whiplash, were responsible for more than 30% of lost work days in 2004. Unfortunately, many victims of soft tissue injuries mistakenly believe that these injuries are not serious, and therefore fail to seek medical attention and miss their opportunity to file a personal injury lawsuit for reimbursement. If you suffered a soft tissue injury caused by a Nashville auto accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your legal options.

Types of Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries occur when injury is inflicted on a part of the body without affecting the bones or organs. For the most part, these injuries cause damage to the muscles, tissues and ligaments that connect different structures in the body, including the neck, knee, shoulder, and upper or lower back. Common examples of soft tissue injuries include:

The most dangerous aspect of soft tissue injuries is that they may not be immediately noticeable after an accident, but they can become a problem days or even weeks later. For this reason, it is imperative that victims of Tennessee car accidents seek medical attention as soon as possible, so that if soft tissue injuries like whiplash and back pain do emerge down the road, the victim’s medical records concerning that accident are already on file.

Consequences of Soft Tissue Injuries

Because soft tissue injuries affect the ligaments, muscles and tendons, this type of injury can be difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to treat, sometimes requiring lengthy physical rehabilitation. As a result, soft tissue injuries have the potential to cause serious pain that may persist for months or even years after the initial injury occurred. Unfortunately, because many soft tissue injuries don’t require casting, the use of braces or other visible aids, many Nashville accident victims who suffer soft tissue injuries find themselves struggling to prove their injuries exist. For this reason and for many others, it is imperative that victims of Nashville auto accidents enlist the help of a qualified TN personal injury attorney immediately after the accident occurs.

Contact a TN Personal Injury Attorney Today

Soft tissue injuries are serious, and the associated side effects can be persistent and painful. According to national statistics, approximately 25% of whiplash injuries become recurring conditions or disabilities that require long-term medical care. If you or a loved one has sustained a soft tissue injury from a Tennessee car accident, contact a Nashville personal injury attorney to discuss your options for legal recourse. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, loss of income, and current and future medical care, which you can collect by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. Consult a Tennessee personal injury lawyer today and ensure that your legal rights are protected.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
