Personal Injury Attorney for Car Accidents and Soft Tissue Injuries

Car accident victims can suffer from any number of injuries spanning from broken bones to whiplash. And while some people assume that they won’t be able to receive a personal injury settlement after sustaining a soft tissue injury, that’s not always the case.

What you need to know

Nearly all soft injury claims are linked to car accidents—which means that anyone who has been in a motor vehicle crash will want to see a doctor. This holds true even if the victim feels fine after the accident happens. The reason for this is simple: in the hours after the incident, adrenaline may still be pumping through their bloodstream, which may minimize any immediate sense of pain.

As such, pain associated with back strains, strains, contusions, torn or strained ligaments and/or whiplash may not develop until later.

The biggest challenge associated with pursuing a personal injury lawsuit for soft tissue injuries is that deep bruises and/or nerve damage aren’t things that shows up on an x-ray. Seeking immediate medical care will allow your doctor to document your injuries and add them to your medical record. Arriving in court with your medical records in hand will give you a much stronger case than showing up with a pair of crutches.

Benefits of hiring a Naples Florida law firm

If you have questions about whether you’re eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, you’ll want to speak with a personal injury attorney in your area. The lawyer will ask you about the circumstances surrounding the accident including when it happened, where it happened and why it happened. They’ll also want to know about the extent of your injuries, whether you sought out medical care and if you’ll need continued care in the future. Lastly, they’ll ask if you have contact information for people who witnessed the accident and whether you think they might be willing to testify on your behalf.

The more proof that you have that your injury required medical attention and that the plaintiff was responsible for causing the motor vehicle crash, the better your chances will be in court.
