Jacksonville, Florida Auto Accident Lawyer- Soft Tissue Injuries


soft tissue atuo accidentHave you been hurt in an accident? Not all accident injuries involve broken bones, back injuries or brain injuries. When an accident results in muscles and tendons being pulled or stretched, those soft tissue injuries need care, too. Soft tissue injuries - like torn tendons, sprains, and whiplash - are often extremely painful and can take long to recover from. Some of these injuries cause chronic pain.


  • Back spasms and strains

  • Bulging discs

  • Chronic back and neck pain

  • Torn tendons and ligaments

  • Sprains or strains

  • Contusions (bruises)

  • Whiplash, which can cause a number of other conditions


Soft tissue injuries can cause chronic, lasting pain. As a personal injury attorney, we understand the importance of considering the long-term affects of a soft tissue injury. If  a doctor has determined  that your injury will cause lasting effects, you can be assured we will pursue compensation accordingly.


What to Do if You Have a Soft Tissue Injury


DO report it as soon as you notice it. You may not have noticed the pain at the time of the accident. It may have appeared hours later, or even the next day. The sooner you report the injury to your doctor, the better your chances may be to connect your injury to the accident.

DO NOT allow insurance companies to minimize your claim, especially if your doctor tells you that you have to live with the pain. You may have a right to seek compensation for pain and suffering, and chiropractor and other medical bills.
