The attorneys at Ginny Walia Law Offices are experienced California personal injury attorneys. The human body is composed of both soft tissue and hard tissue. Hard tissue refers to the bones and everything else is referred to as soft tissue.

The most common types of soft tissue injuries is back injuries and whiplash. Soft tissue damages also include injury to muscles, tendons, nerves, sprains, strains, ligaments, tendons, and repetitive stress (carpel tunnel).

Millions of people suffer from soft tissue injuries in the United States and many of those live in San Francisco and the bay area of California. Soft tissue injuries may prevent you from walking or moving your extremities which ultimately leads to a greatly diminished quality of life.

Whiplash

The attorneys at Ginny Walia Law Offices are experiences in whiplash accident injuries. Whiplash occurs when the soft tissue in the neck is injured due to the head and neck being suddenly thrown back and forward upon impact. The impact causes the neck to be transferred into a position beyond the normal movement range. Most commonly these injuries occur during an automobile accident, truck accident, or a bus accident.

Brachial Plexus Lesion

The attorneys at the Ginny Walia Law Offices have experience handling california brachial plexus lesion injury lawsuits. The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that runs through the neck at the spine into the arm. A brachial plexus injury is a traumatic injury and typically occurs from an avulsion injury or stretching in excess.

The most common brachial plexus lesion is caused by slip and falls where the injured party falls on the neck at an angle. A brachial plexus lesion injury can be detected if you experience sensory problems, your reflexes are diminished, or you are experiencing weakness in the arm.

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

The California personal injury attorneys at the Ginny Walia Law Offices have worked on soft tissue damage resulting in carpel tunnel syndrome. Carpel tunnel injuries are a medical condition where the median nerve in the wrist is compressed leading to a numb and tingling feeling in the forearm and wrist leading to pain.

Carpel tunnel injuries can be detected if you are experiencing the pain of pins and needles in your arm, pain in the hand and wrist, numbness in the hands and wrist, or burning in the fingers and thumb. Most commonly carpel tunnel is caused by dislocation of carpal bones, increased hand activity, repetitive motions of the hand and wrist, and fractures.

Rotator Cuff Injury

Another common soft tissue injury is damage to the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is located in the shoulder and connects to four of the muscles in the shoulder. There are two main types of rotator cuff injuries: acute and chronic.

An acute rotator cuff injury is caused due to a sudden injury such as a fall. Chronic rotator cuff injury is something that gets progressively worse over time with certain activity that agitates the muscle.

What to do if you have a soft tissue injury:

First, make sure you or any loved ones receive prompt medical attention. Insist on a full evaluation of your injuries, including all lab tests for spinal and head injuries.
After getting the medical attention necessary to address your injuries, contact a California soft tissue injury accident attorney with experience in personal injury. Also, note that there are statutes of limitations which can restrict the amount of time you have to file a suit after an accident especially if the cause of action is against a government agency. You should only entrust your case to a soft tissue injury accident attorney with the knowledge and experience to ensure the maximum recovery.

What compensation can be recovered in a soft tissue injury case?

A California soft tissue injury accident attorney can help you determine the types and amounts of damages to which you may be entitled. The amount and type of damage will depend on all of the circumstances regarding the soft tissue injuries.

Calculation of damages from the accident depends on a multitude of factors such as the injuries sustained, the injured party’s current earnings and potential future earning, marital status and if there are any dependents, the extent of the injuries and the amount for all medical expenses in the past as well as present. It is in your best interests to contact a soft tissue injury attorney to determine your potential recovery.

Selecting an accident attorney:

It is important that the lawyer you hire is experienced and capable of navigating the state and federal laws and regulations governing all types of soft tissue injuries, and that your attorney can determine if violation of those laws caused your soft tissue accident or made your injuries or other damages worse. It is very important for a personal injury lawyer handling these cases to ensure that all potential sources of compensation are pursued.

It is also important that your attorney retains investigators and well-respected experts to investigate the causes of your injuries. Competent and reliable accident attorneys will invest the necessary resources and efforts to ensure that your case is resolved for the maximum recovery.
