What You Should Know About Soft Tissue Injuries
Make sure what you think is a “bump”, isn’t actually something more serious.
A Soft tissue injury can result from a single impact during an accident or from repetitive strain over time.
Slip and fall accidents, car accidents, or even everyday tasks at work can cause injuries to soft tissue. Repetitive motions at work are a great example of workplace soft tissue injuries.
If you’ve suffered an impact injury but you don’t have a broken bone or the impact hasn’t broken the skin, you may have soft tissue damage.
People we consult with have often failed to get soft tissue injuries checked out as they feel it’s not serious or will heal on its own. It’s important to understand that these types of injuries can be just as important as head trauma or broken bones.
It’s also important that you get all your injuries checked by a medical professional, even if you feel they are small or will heal on their own. Getting checked out gives you information on if your injury will heal or if you there is a chance of further issues. It also helps your claim or lawsuit if you need to file one. Having records of your injury helps our lawyers paint a complete picture of how your injury has affected you.
If you feel your injury was preventable or the result of someone’s negligence contact our soft tissue lawyers. Our lawyers keep up to date through practice, seminars, and training on handling soft injury claims and lawsuits.

Types of Soft Tissue Injuries That May Require A Lawyer
Soft tissue injuries aren’t generally very serious, they may prevent us from working, or other personal events. But that doesn’t mean they won’t require medical attention. And if your injury was the result of someones else’s neglect, your medical bills and lost wages from missing work, or other pain and suffering from missing personal events should be covered.
- Brusies – Bruises and contusions are injuries to the soft tissues. Most bruises and contusions will heal on their own, but if they persist over a period of time, medical attention may be required.
- Muscle Strain – The strains are a twisted, pulled, or torn muscle and sometimes a tendon. The tendons are tissue cords that connect muscles to bones.
- Bursitis – Bursitis is the inflammation of a bursa, which can be caused by repeated stress or trauma.
- Tendonitis – Tendonitis is when a tendon swells after an injury, causing joint pain, stiffness, and affecting how it moves.
- Sprain – Ligaments become stretched or torn when twisted. Ankles, wrists and knees are all susceptible to sprains.
