Soft tissue injuries involve the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the body. They can occur as a result of many situations, according to the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). You might have suffered such an injury in a car accident, for instance.
If you or a family member suffered a soft tissue injury in a collision, reach out to Bressman Law to discuss filing a claim with the liable party’s insurer. We can even help you file a lawsuit, if necessary. Consider calling our team at (614) 538-1116 today about hiring a Cincinnati soft tissue injury lawyer.
Types of Compensation You Could Recover in a Soft Tissue Injury Case
The AAOS reports that rest, medications, and compression can help heal soft tissue injuries. However, depending on your pain levels, you might have to see a doctor or attend physical therapy. While you recover from your injury, you may be unable to work or complete certain tasks.
If this is true in your case, you might be able to pursue compensation to cover the following losses:
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Lost wages, tips, bonuses, and benefits
- In-home help during your recovery period
Speak to your lawyer about the different losses that your soft tissue injury created. The AAOS states that the knees, wrists, and ankles are especially vulnerable to soft tissue injuries. You may have even strained or sprained your neck.
Bressman Law can help you secure the cost of your collision-related damages. We encourage you to call us today.

You Have a Limited Time to Take Legal Action
If you decide to file a lawsuit, you generally have two years to do so under Chapter 2305 of the Ohio Revised Statutes. The statute of limitations usually expires after those two years are up. The timeline starts the day you are injured or discovered that you were hurt.
There might be ways to extend the timeline, though. For instance, if your child is the individual who suffered the soft tissue injury, they may get more time to take legal action. If the other party fled the state following the accident, you could have more time to file a lawsuit in civil court. Your legal team will explore your options and determine how much time you have to take action.

Reasons for Pursuing Compensation
You might be scared at the idea of holding the responsible party (or parties) responsible for their negligence. You do not have to do this alone, however. Your Cincinnati soft tissue injury lawyer will stand by you and protect your rights.
Through your claim or lawsuit, you can hold someone else accountable for their wrongdoing. If someone owed you a duty of care and violated that obligation, you can seek closure and compensatory damages.
You might also have difficulty paying for your accident-related losses after you suffer a soft tissue injury—especially if you cannot work. You can recover damages to support you and your family. A financial award can take some of the pressure off of your shoulders.
