Soft Tissue Injury

If you are in a car accident at any speed, your body is thrown around the interior of the car, against hard objects and at various angles. It may not have seemed like a serious accident and the damage to the car may not be extensive.

But your body was not designed to withstand being hurled around violently in this way. You probably sustained one or more of these:

  • Muscle sprains
  • Bruises
  • Abrasions
  • Ligament tear
  • Ligament strain
  • Ligament sprain
  • Muscle strains
  • Muscle sprain
  • Tendon sprain
  • Tendon strain

These injuries may not appear immediately. They may not show up on an x-ray or even an MRI. But they can, in the long run, limit your abilities at work and home, and cause pain that will not go away very soon. Call a San Angelo soft tissue injuries lawyer now.

It is urgent that you get medical attention immediately. Many people neglect to do so, only to realize the next day that they really are hurt and they need to seek help. You should get the care you need and also document your injuries. Photographs should be taken when your injuries are visible.

Insurance Companies

Of course your insurer, and the other driver's insurance company don't want to pay for your damages unless they are forced to do so. They will try to minimize or deny your injuries. There may not be much damage to the steel of your car, but you are not made of steel. Muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues are vulnerable and you may be injured.
