Soft tissue injuries include damage to any muscles, tendons, or ligaments found in the body. Some of the most common soft tissue injures are sprains, strains, and bruising caused by an accident, including whiplash from a car accident.
But soft tissue injuries can also come from repetitive stress in the workplace. If you’ve suffered an injury to cartilage, nerves, or other soft tissues due to your job or the conditions at your place of employment, you should notify your employer of the injury as soon as possible. Then you should talk to a workers’ compensation lawyer to make sure you receive fair compensation.
Soft tissue damage like cuts and abrasions are very common after motor vehicle accidents or from injuries working with machinery. Burns, including chemical or friction burns, can also cause soft tissue damage. The resulting scars, especially when visible or significant, have an impact on the victim’s life and may result in compensation.
