If your soft tissue injury caused you to incur medical bills, you may be able to receive compensation for your costly medical expenses. This may include your hospital stay, pharmaceutical bills, rehabilitation costs, and more.
In certain situations, your soft tissue injury may be so severe that you are forced to miss work for days, weeks, or even months. Our experienced attorneys may be able to help you seek compensation for the wages you lost due to your injury.
Lost Earning Capacity
If your injury causes long-lasting or permanent disability, your ability to earn money in the future may be impacted. If this is the case, you may be able to seek compensation for your lost earning capacity. For example, if you were eligible for a higher-paying job before your accident, but your disability currently prohibits you from seeking the higher paying job, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the job you are now ineligible for.
If you have sustained soft tissue damage due to the negligence or intentional action of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, as well as any property damage suffered as a result of the other person’s negligence or acts. For example, if you were the victim of a car accident, the at-fault party could be liable for your soft tissue injuries, as well as the damage to your motor vehicle.
Future Medical Expenses
If you suffered long-lasting or permanent soft tissue injury, you may be able to seek compensation for your current medical costs, as well as any future medical expenses.
Pain and Suffering
Soft tissue injuries can result from seriously traumatic events. Pain and suffering compensation may be calculated by your current injury, how your life will be affected by the injury in the future, and the psychological and emotional consequences of your accident. Typically, the more severe the injury, the more compensation you may be entitled to due to your pain and suffering.
COMMON SOFT TISSUE INJURIES
There are many kinds of soft tissue injuries. These injuries refer to injuries of the tendons, ligaments, and muscles throughout the body. Soft tissue injuries may occur due to sports, exercise, or overuse of a particular part of the body. Examples of common soft tissue injuries include:
A sprain is a partial tear to a ligament. Sprains most often affect ankles, knees, and wrists. A sprain may occur due to sudden twisting, turning, or rolling movements. Treatment for a minor sprain involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation. More serious sprains may require medical attention, such as surgical repair.
A strain is an injury to a muscle or tendon. Strains are often caused by overuse of the affected area, force, or even stretching. Treatment may include rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Surgical repair may be needed if there is a tear in the muscle.
A contusion is otherwise referred to as a bruise. This type of injury is often produced by a blunt force, such as a kick, fall, or blow. Contusions may result in pain, swelling, or discoloration. Minor contusions can be treated at home with rest, ice, compression, and elevation. More serious injuries may require medical attention.
Tendonitis is the inflammation of the tendon, which is a flexible band of tissue that connects muscle to bones. Tendonitis is often the result of the overuse of an injury from a repetitive motion. Tendonitis is often named for the sport or movement that triggers the inflammation. Examples of this injury include tennis elbow, swimmer’s shoulder, or golfer’s elbow.
Treatment for tendonitis may include rest, compression, elevation, and anti-inflammatory medicine. Further, stretching and strengthening exercises may help avoid further injury. If there is chronic pain, steroid injections may be necessary. In serious cases, a tendon may be completely torn, requiring surgery.
Bursitis is the inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that provides a cushion between bones, muscles, and tendons. This type of injury may occur due to the overuse of an injury, or direct trauma to a joint. Bursitis often affects the shoulder, elbow, knee, hip, ankle, and foot.
Treatment for bursitis includes rest, compression, elevation, and anti-inflammatory medicine. Injections may be necessary if pain and swelling persist.
6. Stress Injuries
Stress injuries are commonly caused by repeated motions performed in the course of work or normal daily activities. For example, a stress injury may be caused by unnatural or awkward motions, overexertion, incorrect posture, or muscle fatigue. These injuries are often characterized by pain, tingling, numbness, swelling, or loss of strength of the affected area.
Treatment for stress injuries may include taking breaks, stretching exercises, ice, or anti-inflammatory medication. In serious cases, surgery may be required to prevent permanent damage, although this is rare.
If you believe you are suffering from any of these types of injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a Zinda Law Group attorney today to discuss your case.
WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE?
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence or intentional act of another, you may be asking who can be held liable for those injuries.
