What is a soft tissue injury?
Most people involved in a car accident suffer from a soft tissue injury. A soft tissue injury affects the tissues of the body. They include damage and bruising of the muscles, tendons or ligaments throughout your body. A common soft tissue injury is whiplash. In this type of soft tissue injury, the soft tissues of the neck are affected. An injured person will feel pain and stiffness in their neck as a result of the injury.
Soft tissue injuries can cause significant pain and impairment. The pain can appear right away, disappear and then reappear. In some cases, the pain does not show up right away. It is important to get medical attention to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

How is a soft tissue injury proven?
Soft tissue injuries can be hard to prove. Car accident insurers are especially skeptical of soft tissue injury claims and may deny a claim or refuse to pay for medical treatment or compensation. You will need to prove the injury exists. When you are suffering from a soft tissue injury, you can take steps to prove the injury exists by:
- Get medical help immediately after the accident happened.You need treatment and this will deflect any allegations that your injuries are fake.
- Take pictures at the scene of the accident and of the injuries. Pictures help detail the damage to your car and your body and are impressionable to a juror if your case goes to trial.
- Get a doctor's or expert witnesses statement. It will be harder for an insurance company to deny that the injury is real with this type of proof.
- Let your family and friends know how the injury is affecting your life. In the event of a trial, they may be called as witnesses on how the injury has impacted your life.
Remember, the stronger the proof of your injury, the better your chances of being able to get medical treatment and fair compensation for your soft tissue injuries.
