Cleveland Soft-Tissue Injury Attorney

Many serious injuries are immediately obvious: a limb is amputated, an organ is punctured, a bone is broken. A more common category of injuries, however, are soft-tissue injuries, which usually do not show up on MRIs or X-rays. These injuries include the strains and sprains of joints, ligaments, muscles, and connective tissue. While not life-threatening or catastrophic, soft-tissue injuries are oftentimes painful and cause major extended disruptions in people’s lives.

Following is a list of common categories of soft-tissue injuries. Note that these injuries could result from almost any kind of situation, from a car accident to a workplace accident to a fall:

  • Strained muscles
  • Sprained joints (including whiplash)
  • Contusions (bruises)
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Punctures and penetrations
  • Lacerations
  • Evisceration
  • Avulsion (torn skin)
  • Bites

Soft-tissue injuries can require advanced pain medication and extended icing, rest, and elevation. Chiropractic treatment is often the preferred approach, along with physical therapy. Often times, insurance companies refuse to compensate people for soft-tissue injuries and offer extremely low settlement offers based upon the lack of MRI findings or positive x-ray results. Soft-tissue injuries can cause significant negative impacts on a person’s life – sometimes indefinitely. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to fair compensation – regardless of what an insurance adjuster tells you.
