Unlike a bone fracture, soft tissue injuries may not show up on an X-ray or medical image. However, damage to tendons, ligaments, and tissues can affect your life for months or years into the future.
One example of a soft-tissue injury is whiplash, which often occurs in rear-end collisions. The sudden back and forth motion of the neck can stretch ligaments and may even result in tissues impinging on your nerves. Symptoms of a whiplash injury such as neck pain, stiffness, and headaches may grow worse in the days after the accident. While most people recover within a few months with pain medication and treatment, others experience chronic neck pain and other complications.
Our personal injury attorneys in Kansas City will serve as your advocate to ensure you receive the medical treatment you need and the compensation you deserve. The insurance company may not take your injury seriously, but our lawyers will.
