Lawyers Handling All Types of Injury Cases in West Virginia

Soft tissue injuries are known to be milder and faster healing than other injuries like broken bones and brain injuries, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any easier to successfully file a personal injury claim in West Virginia. If you’ve been injured in an accident and wish to take legal action, it may in fact be harder to obtain the compensation you need because proving soft tissue injuries to insurance adjusters can be more challenging.

What Are Soft Tissue Injuries?

A soft tissue injury is damage to the soft tissue of the body, which can be anything from your tendons and muscles to your skin and nerves. The four tissues commonly injured are the epithelial, muscular, nervous, and connective tissues. Bruises, contusions, and other signs of injury should be photographed immediately and periodically.

Common types of soft tissue injuries include:

  • Bruises/contusions: Bruising can occur when anything makes contact with your body in a harmful way, such as being struck by a flying object or falling on the ground in an accident. Bruising can cause pain, swelling, and skin discoloration.
  • Sprains and strains: Some of the most frequent injuries suffered in accidents are sprains and strains, which occur when any force causes tears in your tissues by pushing your joints or muscles beyond their range of motion. Some signs of a sprain or strain in the aftermath of an accident include pain, swelling, inability to walk or use the affected limb, and discoloration.
  • Repetitive stress injuries: Sometimes, a soft tissue injury doesn’t result from one single incident, but rather over time after performing the same motions. Constant straining or twisting over time can cause soft tissue injuries that can be quite painful.

Soft tissue injuries are commonly caused by accidents, sports, being struck by an object, falling, or repetitive movements. Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of soft tissue injuries because bruises and strains frequently accompany falls, whether a person has slipped down a flight of stairs or has sprained their ankle while tripping over torn carpeting. Car accidents often contribute to soft injury claims when drivers and passengers are jolted or thrown from their vehicles.

What Do I Need to Prove My Claim?

The most critical factor in investigating the case is timing and documentation. Treatment of a soft tissue injury begins with a good medical history and a thorough physical examination, which is why it’s recommended that anyone who thinks they may have suffered an injury in accident seek medical attention, even if they’re not experiencing any immediate pain. An X-ray may also be necessary to assess the possibility of a fracture or dislocation.

In addition to holding onto your medical records and receipts, there are other ways you can document your accident. If you’re at the scene and able, take as many photos of the property damage and your injuries as possible.

Other ways you can document your accident include:

  • Get witness contact information: Did anyone witness your accident? Get their contact information before they leave so you and your attorney can get in touch with them for their statement.
  • Obtain any official authority reports: Authorities will often need to file official reports when they respond to accidents, which victims can use as evidence in their claims. One example is a crash report, which officials have to file after car accidents. Victims of the accident can obtain a copy of the report when they call their local police station where it was filed.
  • Find video footage: Were there street cameras or dash cams that captured your accident and the resulting damage? Getting a copy of the video footage can give you the edge your case needs so you can obtain compensation. If your soft tissue injuries occurred in a store or near a building, for example, there may be security cameras that recorded your accident.

It can be stressful to remember how much you need to collect to support your claim, but when you call Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our soft tissue injury lawyers can handle all of the details and more so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Our decades of collective experience and courtroom wins give us the resources and knowledge we need to collect evidence and file your soft tissue injury claim in a timely manner so you can get justice.
