Have You Sustained A Soft Tissue Injury In New Jersey?

Don’t Deal With the Insurance Company Alone. Call David A. DiBrigida Today!

Rather than bones, soft tissue injuries affect tissues such as tendons, ligaments, nerves, and muscles. They can be excruciatingly painful, need surgery or physical therapy, and take a long time to recover from. They aren’t as apparent as fractured bones and are frequently invisible to the human eye. Soft tissue injuries are difficult to document with objective medical evidence since they do not show up on standard medical diagnostic equipment like x-ray machines or MRIs. Many insurance companies are dubious of soft tissue injury claims, underestimate the severity of the victim’s agony, and provide pitiful payouts. If you’ve sustained this sort of injury in a New Jersey accident, contact a soft tissue injury lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer who has dealt with these injuries before and has firsthand knowledge of typical insurance company strategies and defenses will give you the best chance to prove your claim, file a successful personal injury lawsuit, protect your rights, and maximize any financial settlement to which you may be entitled. Do not make the mistake of attempting to file a claim or file a lawsuit on your own.

Common Types Of Soft Tissue Injuries

There are two basic types of soft tissue injuries: acute and overuse/overexertion injuries.


Acute soft tissue injuries are caused by a quick impact such a car accident, a slip, twist, or a fall. A sprain, strain, or contusion is a common symptom of this type of injury (bruise). Whiplash is a frequent soft tissue injury that can happen in the aftermath of an automobile collision.


Overuse Soft tissue injuries are widespread in sports and result from overuse or overexertion of a certain body area. They can also be produced by repeated action over a long length of time with no opportunity for the injury to heal in between repetitions, such as a long-term carpenter pounding nails into wood or a professional carpet layer kicking in a carpet. Tendonitis or bursitis in the knees, ankles, or wrist are common side effects of repeated action. Overexertion soft tissue injuries include those induced by lifting a large object, carrying it, dragging or pushing it, holding it, or hurling it, and frequently result in back or leg strains.

What Are The Different Degrees Of Soft Tissue Injuries?

Two of the most prevalent types of soft tissue injuries are sprains and strains. The degree of the tissue damage is used to provide a grade.
Grade 1 sprain/strain — mild injury that is commonly treated with the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
Grade 2 sprain/strain — significant injury with 10% to 90% tissue damage, moderate discomfort, and some rehabilitation or physical therapy is required.
Grade 3 sprain/strain — serious injury with 90% to 100% tissue damage, discomfort, and loss of function. Surgery, long-term rehabilitation, and physical therapy may be required to restore to pre-injury function.

What Types Of Accidents Result In Soft Tissue Injuries?

Neck sprains and strains, including whiplash, are the most common soft tissue injuries recorded in insurance claims after rear-end automobile crashes and falls. Whiplash is a neck injury caused by a violent, quick back-and-forth movement of the neck, similar to whiplash. Over a 12-year period, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) reported 805,581 whiplash injuries as a result of automobile accidents, with 272,000 of those injuries occurring in rear-end crashes. Whiplash can result in modest neck or shoulder discomfort, back pain, headaches, or dizziness as a result of a slight muscular strain or soft tissue ripping. Nerve damage, ligament ruptures in the neck, fractures of cervical vertebrae, and disc injury are all serious whiplash injuries. Whiplash injuries are painful, necessitate medical care, and necessitate numerous visits to doctors, specialists, and therapists. They can take a long time to recover – perhaps years.
Soft tissue injuries are common in the workplace. Overexertion, falling on the same level or to a lower level, being struck by an object such as falling materials, and work-related motor vehicle highway accidents are among the leading causes of serious non-fatal workplace injuries, according to the Liberty Mutual Insurance Company’s annual Workplace Safety Index.

New Jersey Boat Accident FAQ

Resting is the most important thing you can do to accelerate the healing of a soft tissue injury. Other than that, icing, compressing, and elevating the injured area is always a good idea in order to alleviate pain and speed up healing.
If someone else has caused you to suffer a soft tissue injury due to their actions or their negligence, they could be found liable, and as such you have the possibility of taking them to court in order to receive compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
If you have dealt with a soft tissue injury that was caused by the negligence or intentional acts of another person, you should always speak with an experienced soft tissue injury lawyer. A trustworthy attorney will assess your case and help you determine what your best course of action is.

Who Is Responsible For A Soft Tissue Injury?

If you are in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence and you suffered a soft tissue injury, you should contact a knowledgeable attorney to discuss the circumstances of your situation and whether filing a claim or personal injury lawsuit is appropriate. Your lawyer will guide you through the complicated processes, explain what is needed to substantiate your claim, help you compile the necessary medical documentation, and ensure that you meet all deadlines and appearances. If your injury was due to a property owner’s negligence, such as a cracked sidewalk in front of a store that caused you to slip and fall, your attorney will help you file a legal claim for compensation to cover medical bills and lost wages.
The victim of a soft tissue injury can pursue two different paths: a personal injury claim or an injury lawsuit against the negligent party.
In an injury claim, the victim files a claim with an insurance company. The claim might be against the auto insurance company, a professional liability policy, or a homeowner’s or property holder’s insurance company.
An injury lawsuit is pursued if a settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company. This is a much more complicated process and involves an independent investigation of the circumstances leading to the injury, discovery, depositions, negotiations, and a trial.
The best advice — DO NOT WAIT. Call a skilled soft tissue lawyer as soon as possible after suffering an injury.
