Muscle and Soft Tissue
The value of a muscle injury claim or soft tissue injury claim depends on the type of injury you have sustained and how it has impacted your life. If you are asking “What’s a muscle or soft tissue claim worth?” you may want to speak directly with an injury lawyer to discuss your legal options.
Car accidents and other injury accidents that happen on construction sites, sports field, workplace, or even retail stores may lead to soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries include: back, neck, shoulder sprains, strains, whiplash, herniated discs, bulging discs, and other types of injuries to muscle and tendons. These muscle injuries can be painfully disabling and may greatly impact your quality of life.

Hiring Muscle and Soft Tissue Injury Experts
Soft tissue injury experts are important where there has been serious damage to the skin or body. It might be necessary for a physician to explain to the insurance company, judge or jury, the extent of damages your soft tissue injury has caused.
Soft tissue experts are also necessary when it helps to reconstruct the accident that caused your injury. A soft tissue expert may testify about the various causes and risk-factors present in your case that may have contributed to your muscle injury. These experts help to explain the basic mechanics of how the soft tissue injury occurred.
Children and Muscle Injuries
Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether a child has a soft tissue or muscle injury because they do not have the ability to communicate their symptoms. As a parent, there are several reliable signs you may look for in a soft tissue injury, including: swelling in the affected area; bruising; severe pain; tenderness in one spot; or an inability or unwillingness to move one limb through a full range of motion. If your child has a muscle injury, it is important to seek medical help. If your child’s head, neck, or back may be injured, or if the muscle injury is so severe your child cannot move, do not move him/her. Call 911 instead.
Is it important to act quick?
In nearly every case, time is critical. If you have been injured in an accident resulting in a soft tissue injury, the clock starts ticking at the moment of the accident. An experienced soft tissue injury lawyer may need to collect and preserve evidence which may be important in presenting your case. In some broken bone injury cases, it is necessary for a soft tissue injury lawyer to collect evidence relating to your injury and document the accident scene and vehicles involved in the accident. The evidence collected is sometimes used by soft tissue injury experts to reconstruct the events leading up to your injury, or the accident scene itself. Methods used for treatment of muscle injuries are also most effective if started right away.
