Soft Tissue injuries from a Road Traffic Accident

Each year there are thousands of road traffic accidents right around the UK, ranging from very serious accidents which occur at high speed, to very minor accidents which may be a simple shunt in a car park. Regardless of the type of accident, in many cases they leave the victims with a number of serious injuries and soft tissue injuries are among some of the more common injuries to occur.

Although they may not seem as serious as other injuries, soft tissue injuries can be painful and they can prevent you from performing a number of common tasks. If this happens to you, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. 

In what situation could I receive a soft tissue injury?

Due to the high impact nature of road traffic accidents there are a number of situations where you could receive a soft tissue injury and some of the most common examples of this include:

  • Accidents which involve multiple vehicles
  • Accidents which occur at a high speed
  • Accidents where foreign objects may enter the vehicle
  • Accidents caused by the direct negligence of another person
  • Accidents which involve a HGV or public transport.

  • Muscle damage in any area of the body
  • Ligament damage in any area of the body
  • Tendon damage in any area of the body
  • Cuts and lacerations which lead to the tearing or rupturing of soft tissue.

Who can I claim against for soft tissue injuries?

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident then you can claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. This could be the council or a governing body if you have been injured as the result of an accident which occurred on roads which were poorly maintained.
