Soft-Tissue Damage Injuries
Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Pursuing Compensation
The body's soft tissue is matter that surrounds the bones and joints, particularly tendons, ligaments and muscles. When individuals are in car accidents, they can easily suffer from soft-tissue injuries. While these injuries typically involve faster recovery time, they can still be very painful and can potentially lead to more serious complications. Examples of soft tissue damage injuries include strains, sprains, deep bruising and whiplash of the affected area of soft tissue. Some of the areas of the body that are commonly affected in soft-tissue injuries include the neck, back, shoulder, elbow, hip, thigh, knee, ankle and wrist areas.
Because soft-tissue injuries do not show up on x-rays, they can be much harder to prove than other types of injuries. Insurance companies oftentimes use this opportunity to allege that the victim who is making an accident claim is faking or exaggerating the injury. This gives the insurers an excuse to deny claims or to offer settlements that are far below what the claims are actually worth. At Kalka & Baer LLC, our experienced
Atlanta personal injury attorneys can help victims file strong claims or lawsuits for their soft-tissue injuries, even when they are dealing with unfair claim denials.
Importance of Filing a Claim
Accident claims are important because they allow victims to pursue compensation to cover the damages incurred by their injuries. These damages might include costs for medical care, such as emergency room visits, visits with chiropractors, physical therapy, surgery, etc.; lost wages from time that the victim was unable to work; pain and suffering; emotional distress; and more. While soft-tissue injuries are generally seen as more minor, some can be much more severe and can even require surgery. When a victim is injured due to the negligence of someone else, that victim has a right to seek financial recovery from that at-fault individual or entity.
