At Desai Law, we understand that an injury to the muscles, ligaments and tendons can cause severe (sometimes lifelong) pain and discomfort. Car accident victims often sustain soft tissue injuries resulting from the impact of the collision between vehicles. These injuries can lead to chronic pain and permanent impairment preventing an accident victim from returning to work, performing activities they once loved, and leading a normal life.
Whiplash injuries are most common in rear-end collisions when the accident victim’s body is jolted forward, then backward causing injury to the neck, shoulders and back. Whiplash symptoms may include, but are not limited to: stiffness of the neck, sharp neck pain, shoulder pain and stiffness, jaw pain, blurred vision, back pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears, fibromyalgia and cognitive issues.
The severity of soft tissue injuries are not always apparent immediately after an accident. These symptoms may gradually emerge days or even weeks after the collision. Soft tissue injuries cannot be detected with an X-ray or MRI and may be difficult to diagnose. However, if left untreated, soft tissue injuries can result in chronic pain requiring immobilization via a neck brace, muscle relaxant medication or physical therapy.
As your personal injury lawyer, Jwan Desai will ensure you obtain the medical attention you require to prove the existence of your soft tissue injury and the extent of your damages. If you believe you have sustained any soft tissue injuries as a result from a motor vehicle accident, contact Desai Law to discuss your potential claim.
