Types of Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries may include stress fractures, sprains, contusions, inflamed joints, or strained ligaments and tendons. At Ponce Law, we handle a variety of soft tissue injury cases, such as:

  • Cervical Disc Injuries
    Cervical discs act like shock absorbers in your neck. Accident trauma can damage or tear these discs, causing extreme pain throughout your upper body.
  • Knee Ligament Injuries 
    The knee is the largest joint in the body, and injuries to cartilage, muscles, and ligaments can be debilitating and require surgery to repair.
  • Shoulder Injuries
    Shoulder injuries can limit the movement of your arms, and surgeries required to repair serious shoulder injuries can require months of physical rehabilitation.
  • Whiplash
    Whiplash describes painful neck injuries caused by the head being thrown backwards or sideways during an accident. Symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, and nausea.

Whether you’re suffering from a serious joint injury or severe neck pain, our soft tissue injury attorneys want to help you hold the parties who caused your accident legally responsible for their negligence.

How to Diagnose a Soft Tissue Injury

Soft tissue damage can be difficult to diagnose because it may not be visible to the naked eye and doesn’t typically show on a standard x-ray. But these “invisible” injuries can still cause victims a great deal of pain. Symptoms of a soft tissue injury may include:

  • Pain
  • Limited range of motion
  • Joint instability
  • Inability to bear weight
  • Stiffness in the limbs
  • Tingling or numbness in the limbs
  • Swelling or bruising
  • A loud popping or snapping sound at the time of the injury

Your doctor may order an MRI or CT scan to detect soft tissue damage.

Why You Need a Lawyer After a Soft Tissue Injury

Insurance companies take a hard stance on soft tissue claims because they can be so difficult to prove.  Insurance companies may try to reduce or deny your claim because soft tissue cases have a reputation of victims falsifying or exaggerating their injuries. That means it can be difficult to convince the insurance company or a judge or jury without a lawyer on your side.

For this reason, it is extremely important to see a doctor who can diagnose your injury as soon as possible after an accident. Medical records will serve as important evidence in your compensation claim.

An experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to provide additional evidence in the form of expert testimony on how the accident may have caused the injury or statistics showing the injury is typical for that type of accident.

With more than 25 years of experience helping injured victims in Tennessee, Ponce Law knows how to help you get the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Give our legal staff a call before you accept an insurance company’s settlement offer for your soft tissue injury.

    Brian and Cheyenne made my first experience with an attorney's office a breeze. I'm thrilled with the outcome of my case—the settlement exceeded my expectations. A friend's mother recommended Ponce Law, and I'm so glad she did. The support I received was crucial, especially during the 2-3 weeks I was out of work. Thanks, Ponce Law, for delivering results beyond what I anticipated.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
