Some personal injury law firms make a point of avoiding handling “soft-tissue” injury cases precisely because they can be difficult cases. This is one reason some attorneys shy away from “whiplash” cases. Another is that “whiplash” is considered by many to be an old-fashioned term that does not describe an actual injury.
At Trapp & Geller, however, we do not split hairs over terminology used by potential clients when we evaluate cases and decide whether to represent injured people. Rather, we look for clear evidence that injuries have left an accident victim with pain, expenses and loss of enjoyment of life — all because of someone else’s negligence.
Our Lawyers Are Ready To Evaluate Your Soft-Tissue Injury Case
If you bring your whiplash case to our attention, we will most likely review your medical records and listen to your story telling of
- Muscle spasms
- Decreased range of motion
- Loss of the lordotic curve of your spine
- A need to wear a neck brace
- Difficulty sleeping, driving and working
If you have incurred significant expenses and continue to suffer the ill effects of a low-impact car accident such as a sideswipe or a T-bone collision, you should ask an experienced attorney to evaluate your case.
We may realize, upon reviewing your case, that an insurance company is likely to resist paying out for a soft-tissue injury, especially if the damage to your car was minimal. Claims adjusters may seek the opinion of a biomechanical expert who may testify that the specific impact to the car would not have caused your neck pain and loss of range of motion.
On the other hand, we may be able to show that your painful condition is the result of aggravation of a pre-existing problem — and that you deserve compensation for your injuries and losses.
