Soft Tissue Injury in a Truck Accident
We Fight for You to Get Full Compensation for Soft Tissue Injury and Other Damages
If you have been involved in a commercial truck accident, you may have
experienced soft tissue injury. You may have experienced other injuries
and losses as well.
The reality is that soft tissue injury can have significant consequences.
Although you eventually will fully recover from these types of injuries,
that can have a negative impact on your life in a number of different ways.
In the aftermath of a commercial truck accident, you need to take a proactive
stance to protect your legal rights and interests. This includes engaging
the professional services of a reputable, reliable truck accident injury
lawyer, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Office. If you

hotline at (800) 349-0000 is staffed all the time.
What Are Soft Tissue Injuries?
In the aftermath of a commercial truck accident, you may have been told
by a physician that you suffered soft tissue injury. If you are like most
people, you may be uncertain as to exactly what is meant by a soft tissue
injury diagnosis. Oftentimes, a person is unnecessarily dismissive of
a soft tissue injury.
Although soft tissue injury arising from a semi-truck accident is not as
serious as some other types of injuries associated with big rig collisions,
soft tissue injury is not something that should be dismissed.
Soft tissue is the tissue in your body that connects, supports, or surrounds
other structures, and organs, within your body. Examples of soft tissue
include ligaments, fascia, skin, tendons, fibrous tissues, fat, and synovial
membranes. Any or all of these different types of soft tissue are subject
to injury in a commercial truck accident.
As you consider your legal options, and how a commercial truck accident
injury lawyer can assist you in protecting your legal rights, you need
to understand some basics about soft tissue injury. In the case of a commercial
truck accident, there are four types of soft tissue injuries that commonly
occur, according to the John Hopkins University School of Medicine. They are:
- stress fracture
A contusion is injury to soft tissue that is caused by blunt force. Blunt
force normally is an underlying element of a big rig accident.
A sprain is an injury to a ligament. A sprain typically is caused by a
twist or wrench, which are also associated in many cases with a semi-truck accident.
A strain is a soft tissue injury associated with the muscle or tendon.
A stress fracture is small crack in a bone, but nevertheless normally
is classified as a soft tissue injury.
Compensation in a Truck Accident Injury Case
The facts and circumstances of the accident, and the nature and extent
of your injuries, dictate the compensation to which you are entitled in
an insurance settlement or lawsuit judgment. With that in mind, common
types of losses for which we obtain compensation for a client in a case
that involves soft tissue injury include:
- pain and suffering
- medical bills and expenses
- physical therapy costs
- occupational therapy costs
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- lost wages
- property damage
Although a person like you that suffers from soft tissue injury typically
can recover faster that if afflicted with fractured bones, internal organ
damage, and other types of traumatic injury, recovery still takes time.
Medical care and treatment can continue into the future. Soft tissue injury
can prove painful.
Because issues associated with soft tissue injury can carry on into the
future, a truck accident injury lawyer from our firm will fight to ensure
that you obtain appropriate compensation for these future losses. The
legal team at The Doan Law Firm makes certain you fully are covered.
