Soft tissue injuries, whether a sprain, muscle tear, or nerve damage, will require the professional help of our San Francisco personal injury attorneys to fight for full and fair compensation. Obtaining direct proof of your injury can be a difficult process. For that reason, we encourage you to take two actions:
This type of injury involves damage to a muscle, ligament or tendon in the body. While some of these injuries are minor, others result in long-term damage that can require surgery or substantial modifications to a person’s job duties or lifestyle.
The insurance companies have waged a public relations battle to make the public (potential jurors) believe that soft tissue injuries are bogus. This is because a substantial number of the claims from car accidents involve soft tissue injuries. To the extent the insurance companies can get the public to believe that soft tissue injuries lack credibility, the insurance companies reduce how much they pay on claims and thus increase profits.
We’ve been successful addressing this issue—both with insurance companies, and when they’ve been stubborn, with juries. Contact our San Francisco personal injury lawyers at your earliest convenience to begin pursuing the just compensation you deserve.
