Soft Tissue Injury
Riverside Soft Tissue Injury Lawyer
When the human body is in a collision that involves two vehicles, something has to give. That something is usually the neck. Typically soft tissue injury (“whiplash”) occurs as a result of a rear-end vehicle collision. The force of impact in an auto accident can cause soft tissues to stretch and tear and result in significant injury, which cannot be directly detected using x-rays. If you have suffered such an injury you need to contact me, I am a Riverside soft tissue injury lawyer. I can help start getting your daily routine back on track and pursue your financial compensation.
Whiplash, the most common soft tissue injury, is the term used to describe the sudden motion of the neck and upper body when an impact causes the head and torso to move quickly in a direction opposite the direction of the impact. It describes injury to muscles, ligaments, tendons and soft tissues in the neck, shoulder and back.
If you have suffered a neck or back injury, you need to contact me at the Law Office of Gary G Goldberg. I will listen to your concerns and assess your legal situation. I will put my 39+ years of experience to work to extract proper compensation for you.
Signs and symptoms do not always appear immediately after injury; sometimes they can occur hours or days later. However, if symptoms happen soon after the injury, it is a sign of possible serious injury. The following are signs and symptoms that may occur:
- Neck, back and arm pain and stiffness
- Headache & dizziness
- Blurred vision
- Nausea & vertigo
- Muscle spasms
- Numbness or tingling in extremities
Treatment for whiplash may consist of:
- Pain medication & muscle relaxants
- Motion exercises / physical therapy
- Soft collar brace is sometimes provided for the first week or two
- Heat therapy & ultrasound
- Chiropractic adjustments
