Soft Tissue Injuries

A soft tissue injury is damage to the body’s connective tissue, such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The most common form of soft tissue injury in car accidents is whiplash. While painful, the injuries may not show up in X-rays. You need an experienced personal injury attorney to assert your right to compensation for the therapies and rest that you need to get better.

Head Injuries

Did you suffer a concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI), skull fracture or lingering headaches? If your head struck the steering wheel, dashboard or window upon impact, your resulting head injury should be evaluated and monitored by medical professionals. If your TBI was serious, you may require evaluation, treatment and therapy from a neuropsychologist or another knowledgeable care provider.

Chest Injuries

The chest is typically one of the first body parts to experience crash impact, often in the form of broken ribs, punctured lungs and internal bleeding. The effects of these injuries may impact you for years or a lifetime.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord damage can significantly impair movement and feeling, commonly resulting in partial or complete paralysis. You and your family may need modifications to your home and vehicle as well as the services of a professional care attendant to adapt to your life after a spinal cord injury.

Superficial Injuries

In minor crashes, many people experience lacerations, bruises and abrasions. Although these injuries are not severe, they may cause scarring and disfigurement, which can lead to poor self-image and other problems.

Aggressive Driving

Reckless or Careless Driving
