Sprains, strains, dislocation and bruising are all types of injuries that affect the soft tissues of the body, and these can occur in any muscles, ligaments or joints. Soft tissue injuries would not show up on an X-Ray, and are therefore sometimes discounted by insurance companies – however, soft tissue injuries can be just as painful and debilitating as fractures, and you are entitled to compensation if you have been involved in an accident where you were not at fault, and you have suffered a soft tissue injury. Our expert personal injury solicitors** Leeds will examine your case to get you the best possible result in terms of compensation.
Take as much evidence as you can to prove your injury, such as photographs of bruises or swelling, and make notes about how the injury affects your life. You should also collect witness statements, and evidence of any costs you have incurred connected with your injury, such as medical bills or transport costs. The more evidence you have, the more likely our Leeds team of personal injury solicitors** will be to be able to get compensation for you.
Make a Claim for a Soft Tissue Injury
Even if your injuries are relatively minor, such as a mild case of whiplash or a slight muscle strain (such as can occur easily in a ham string or tendon), it is still worth investigating your case. It may be that by pursuing personal injury compensation, and pointing out negligence on the part of, for instance, an employer, shop or driver, you may help prevent others from being injured more seriously in the future.
Indeed, soft tissue injuries can be very serious. An ankle sprain can be completely immobilising and the ankle may need to be held in a plaster cast. Dislocations occur when a bone becomes dislodged from a joint, and can be extremely painful and can damage blood vessels, muscles and nerves in the affected area. You can ask our personal injury lawyers at our Leeds offices if you are unsure about whether or not you are entitled to compensation, and they will be able to assess your case and the likelihood of its success.
