What Are Soft Tissue Injuries

A soft tissue injury refers to any injury of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body. These types of injuries can be precipitated by strains, sprains, or contusions (bruising). They can also be the result of repetitive motion or overuse as in the case of tendonitis.

Acute Injury

Acute soft tissue injuries include sprains, which are caused by the stretching or tearing of the ligaments, strains, which are caused by stretching or tearing of muscles or tendons, and contusions (bruising). These types of injuries can occur due to vehicular accidents, jobsite injuries, slip and fall accidents, and other traumatic incidents.

Overuse Injury

Overuse injuries are caused by repetitive motion and include tendonitis and bursitis. These injuries are often caused by performing repetitive tasks or from playing sports.

Soft Tissue Injury Cases

Soft tissue injuries are unique in that they are extremely difficult to prove or disprove to a judge or jury. Because of this, there is a stereotype that has been created by unscrupulous individuals who have faked or exaggerated these types of injuries. Conjuring the image of a neck collar and the claim of whiplash makes it all the harder on victims who are genuinely suffering from a soft tissue injury.

However, when you are the injured party, and you have to go through all the tests and recommended treatments, missing work and missing social engagements, all you want to do is get well. You do not want to lose your life savings because another individual was careless or negligent, and you have a right to a fair settlement.
