Everything You Need to Know About Soft Tissue Injuries

by | Oct 20, 2022 | Uncategorized

Following a sudden accident, victims often sustain several injuries. Many accident injuries cause harm under the skin, making them invisible to the naked eye. Unfortunately, soft tissue injuries such as whiplash and contusions may go undiagnosed, causing significant harm to victims over time. If you were involved in a car or other personal injury accident, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible to diagnose the full extent of your injuries. 

After getting the treatment you need, contacting a talented personal injury attorney is in your best interests. At Mott & Moffett, our attorneys understand how a soft tissue injury can impact your health and happiness and are dedicated to helping victims recover the maximum amount of compensation possible for their losses. When you partner with us, you can have peace of mind that a compassionate and experienced legal professional will handle your case. 

Types of Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries affect the muscles, ligaments, and tendons and can significantly impact the victim’s daily life. Often, soft tissue injury victims experience severe pain and mobility issues as well as an arduous road to recovery. A few examples of soft tissue injuries include the following:

  • Whiplash
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Sprains
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries

During car accidents and other personal injury accidents, the body often bends, twists, and contorts unnaturally, causing soft tissue injuries. After you seek prompt medical attention, your attorney will thoroughly investigate your case to determine the cause of your injuries and hold those responsible fully accountable. 

What Damages May I Be Eligible to Collect After a Soft Tissue Injury?

Soft tissue injuries can cause victims to suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. These issues could cause significantly more distress for victims and their families if the carelessness or recklessness of another caused their injuries. At Mott & Moffett, we find harmful negligence unacceptable and will fight tirelessly to recover compensation for the full extent of your injury-related losses. A few types of damages you may be eligible to recover include the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Emotional trauma
  • Significant disfigurement or disability
  • Pain and suffering

At Mott & Moffett, our skilled attorneys are dedicated to taking a personalized approach to every case to ensure your unique needs are addressed. We will work with you to understand the impact your injury has on your life as well as your future needs. When you retain our services, you can trust us to put your health and comfort first as we secure justice on your behalf. 

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Soft Tissue Injury Claims in Texas?

All states, including Texas, have a legal time limit known as the statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims. If you have suffered a soft tissue injury due to someone else’s negligence, you have two years from the date of your accident to pursue a claim. 

While this may seem like ample time, it is typically in your best interest to act sooner rather than later. Crucial evidence may be lost or destroyed over time, and key witnesses may forget details of the accident. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer will review every detail of your case and advise you on how the statute of limitations applies to you.
