California Soft Tissue Injury Lawyers
Some of the most common injuries as a result of auto accidents are called “soft tissue injuries.” This term is used to describe anything from bruises, contusions, sprains and strains, whiplash, tendinitis and bursitis.
Insurance companies routinely attempt to minimize the severity of these injuries, often denying the claim altogether.
The usual argument is that the force of impact was not enough to cause the type of injury claimed by the victim.
Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys have a proven track record of success resolving the soft tissue cases.
We have the experience and the resources to help you fully develop your case, making sure all claims are preserved, all injuries addressed and documented, and the appropriate investigation is undertaken.
Symptoms Of Soft Tissue Injuries
Frequently, other, more significant injuries can lurk behind the seemingly innocuous soft tissue case.
Spinal injuries, disc bulging and herniations, concussions and brain injuries can result from what many laypeople perceive as a routine fender-bender. Perhaps you were injured after a sidewalk accident.
Symptoms can develop overtime, and the way you feel immediately after the accident is not indicative of the true extent of the injuries you may have suffered.
If you notice your pain or discomfort increase in the days following your accident, do not disregard these red flags. Do not worry that you may have disclaimed injuries either to the insurance company or to the police in a prior statement.
While consistency and credibility is important in any type of legal case, a strong advocate can help you minimize the damage and explain the prior statement. You are entitled to seek treatment for your injuries, whenever the symptoms manifest.
Why You Need An Injury Lawyer
A lot of people feel discouraged by the dismissive tone or inaccurate statements made in police reports, or the misstatements and outright lies told by the other party.
Especially in cases where significant damage may underlie a seemingly innocuous impact, it is important to have an experienced lawyer to fight for your rights.
Police officers and witnesses may try to minimize your injury because there is no blood and no broken bones, but they can't see the damage inside your body.
Especially with spinal conditions, such as prior surgery, scoliosis or degenerative disc disease, pain can be greatly exacerbated by a whiplash injury.
What may initially seem like a shoulder or knee sprain can end up requiring surgery and a lengthy course of physical therapy.
