Injured? Our Attorneys Play Hard Ball with Insurance Companies!
Soft tissue injuries are a common injury for anyone who experiences whip lash in a car accident. They’re even common in the work place, and as the result of all kinds of accidents.
They’re also notoriously tough to diagnose. After all, you can’t x-ray soft tissue like you can a broken bone! Chances are if you’ve suffered a soft tissue injury of some kind, you’ve spent considerable time and money getting the right diagnosis and treatment. You’ve probably also been in considerable pain.
If you were injured through no fault of your own, a soft tissue injury lawyer in California may be able to help you recoup some of those costs, and be compensated for your suffering.
What Is a Soft Tissue Injury?
A soft tissue injury, as the name suggests, is an injury that affects something other than bones and organs, namely muscles, ligaments, tendons, fibrous tissues or fatty areas of the body.
These injuries may include sprains, strains, bruising or tearing, and while they’re not always as obvious as a broken bone, they can be just as debilitating.
What Kind of Injuries Can You Get Compensated For?
As with any injury, the key is always to be able to establish that the injury was due to the action, inaction or negligence of another party.
One example would be a workplace soft tissue injury that occurred because your employer did not provide the correct equipment or training. Another would be a repetitive strain injury due to poor working conditions.
No matter what the cause, however, the key is that to get compensation for this type of injury, it needs to be attributable to the action or negligence of someone else.
How to Get Compensated for an Injury in California
The first step in getting compensated is to realize that you should talk to a soft tissue injury lawyer in California. After that, the process is simple:
- Call 323-999-HELP or go online to fill out a form or chat with a real attorney.
- Lawyers are waiting 24/7 to discuss your case.
- Share your story, how you were injured, and the effects of the injury.
- If you have a case, you’ll be given further instructions on how to proceed.
- There’s no payment for the initial consultation, or to represent you in court or elsewhere. We don’t get paid unless you do.
Soft tissue injuries can be painful. They can have a profound effect on your quality of life, and if you were hurt because of someone else, you deserve to be compensated for those changes, and for your suffering. Don’t wait. Talk to a lawyer sooner rather than later, to make sure you get what you deserve.
