Soft Tissue Injuries
We Have More Than Six Decades Of Collective Experience
Each individual's body will react differently to injury depending on numerous factors such as age, where the person was seated in the car, and how the person was situated at the moment of impact. If five people are in the same accident, it is not uncommon for five different injuries to result. If you have been hurt in an auto accident, it is important that you seek medical attention and the guidance of a lawyer immediately.
The Newport News injury attorneys at Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. have a great deal of experience seeking compensation for injured clients. Learn how we can help you.
A soft tissue injury is one that affects the muscles or tendons in the body. These injuries can have long-lasting effects and often take longer to heal than fractures. As a result, these injuries might ultimately diminish an individual's ability to earn a living. By discussing your situation with an attorney, you gain the ability to recover monetary compensation from the party responsible for the accident.
You can't always see pain. Soft tissue injuries — such as whiplash or a cervical strain — can be difficult to diagnose because there may not be any outward signs of the injury. An injured individual might be suffering a wide range of symptoms that do not necessarily show up on an X-ray, MRI or CT scan.
These symptoms can radiate from the injury site through the victim’s ligaments, tendons and musculature.
