Soft Tissue Damage in a Long Beach Car Accident
Successful Long Beach Personal Injury Lawyer
Soft tissue damage is one of the most overlooked injuries in a
car accident. Doctors may not fully assess the condition, and insurance companies can
be highly skeptical about these injuries. It can even take the injured
person 24 hours to realize the extent to which they are hurt. These injuries
still need to be taken seriously. Not only can they cause a great deal
of pain, but they can literally cost you in doctor's visits and therapy.
Depending on the site of an injury, you may also be unable to work, leaving
you with no way to meet your medical payments.
If your injuries are due to another driver's negligence, then you should
not be the one who has to pay. A fair settlement could cover your car
and medical bills, as well as lost wages. Too often, working with insurance
can be deeply stressful process, and the results may be disappointing.
The other person's insurance might readily deny your claim. If your
claim is accepted, you are likely to get a very low offer. When you deserve
compensation, the Overett Group can provide the sterling representation

Symptoms and Treatment for Soft Tissue Damage
Soft tissue damage can mean sprained muscles, bruised tendons, torn ligaments,
Whiplash is a very common soft tissue injury. You can sustain injuries along your
spinal cord and at your joints. These injuries can be severe and can impair
your mobility. Still, these can all take a while to feel, especially after
the shock of a collision. Even if you feel okay after an accident, it
is usually a good idea to go to your doctor. Some conditions are not apparent
for a full day. If your neck feels stiff, your vision is blurred, or your
limbs start to grow numb, these could indicate serious injuries. You should
see a doctor if you experience a headache, muscle spasms, dizziness, or
fatigue after an accident.
For a soft tissue injury claim, you will need thorough medical records.
These injuries cannot be X-rayed, however. Perhaps your doctor will not
be able to fully diagnose your injuries. You may want to see a chiropractor
or therapist. A specialist may better provide treatment and therapy, and
he or she can also provide the precise medical records you need. That
is crucial. You should not be the one paying as expenses rack up over
the months of medical care. To get the settlement you are owed, you must
convince insurance providers that you are indeed injured.
Soft Tissue Injury Claims in Long Beach
Not only do you have to prove an injury in a car accident, but you must
prove the liability of the other driver. An experienced car accident lawyer
can prove that your accident (and injuries) are due to another person's
Rear-end accidents frequently cause whiplash, and if you were rear-ended, it is simple to
prove the driver behind you is to blame. Perhaps an
aggressive driver sped through a red light. Maybe the other driver was
under the influence. Even if the other driver is
uninsured, you should still get the compensation you are owed. A car accident lawyer
can wrangle with your own insurance company to get your deserved settlement.
In some cases, such with
seat belt injuries, you may need to prove that a car part was faulty. Then you would also
have to prove that the
auto product defect was what caused your soft tissue injury. The car manufacturer would then
be on the hook for your injuries.
