Soft Tissue Injuries

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving NYC & Beyond

Soft tissue refers to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that connect and support body structures. If these are damaged, this can cause debilitating pain, mobility issues, and other problems that can affect one’s work, day-to-day activities, and well-being. These are serious injuries that should be properly compensated for in a personal injury lawsuit, but they are often undervalued or overlooked.

Be that as it may, the New York City personal injury lawyers at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. know how to handle and maximize these claims. We have recovered substantial sums on pure soft tissue cases, and we have also found that many of these cases evolve medically into significant injury claims.

Whiplash Injury Claims in New York City

Whiplash is one of the most common – and most debilitating – soft tissue injuries. Often in a motor vehicle collision, a victim’s neck and back are stretched and contorted and succumb to violent physical forces. These movements invariably rip, tear, and/or stretch the soft tissues in the surrounding anatomical areas. These injuries produce a variety of symptoms. Sometimes the symptoms disappear within a few weeks or months but sometimes they don’t, resulting in herniated discs, joint dysfunction, and chronic pain and suffering that often eclipses the degree of pain and suffering associated with more obvious injuries.

Don’t Let the Insurance Company Undervalue Your Soft Tissue Injury Claim

Soft tissue injuries are more difficult to diagnose and treat in large part due to the premise that they are generally not visible on X-ray. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and/or EMG (electromyography) testing are usually necessary to conclusively diagnose a soft tissue injury, and testing of this nature often does not occur until long after the injury was sustained.

Insurance companies and their defense attorneys are keenly aware of this medical shortcoming which often allows these billion-dollar companies not to settle your claim or make negligible offers that do not adequately compensate you for your loss. Our NYC soft tissue injury attorneys know how to develop compelling cases supporting our clients’ claims, and we can effectively counter the insurance company’s efforts to undervalue your settlement.
