Soft Tissue Injuries
Even though many of these injuries don’t show up on MRIs or X-rays, they are still there and can still cause a lot of pain and suffering. Soft tissue injury often occurs in connection with a car wreck or other motor vehicle accident.
If you have suffered a bulging disk, soft tissue injury or unexplained pain after a car accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injury.
At The McAleer Law Firm, P.C., we have the understanding and the skills needed to fight aggressively and diligently for your rights.
In our legal practice, we represent clients who have suffered damage to the disks in their vertebra anywhere from the neck all the way down the spine. Some are caused by whiplash from a car wreck, others are caused by heavy, repetitive lifting at work. Injuries can also include:
- Cervical injury
- Sprain or strain
- Ruptured disk
- Protruded disk
- Spinal cord impingement
- Torn rotator cuffs
- ACL tears in the knee
In some cases, the doctors can perform surgery and stabilize a painful condition. Sometimes, the pressure on the spine can be so great that if it is not relieved by surgery it can lead to paralysis, numbness or other issues that can affect the health and vitality of a client. Our goal is to see you get the compensation that you need to make as full a recovery as possible from your accident.
Before you agree to settle a case with an insurance company, it is wise to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer. We will review your proposed settlement with the perspective of an advocate:
- What are your lost wages?
- Can you ever return to your former work?
- How has this injury affected your home life?
- What do you need to stabilize your situation now and for the long-term?
- Is the settlement the insurer is proposing in your best interest?
