Causes of Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries are typically caused by some kind of external trauma like a fall or collision. In the past, some of our clients in soft tissue injury cases include people injured at work in the following types of situations:
- Truck or car accidents
- Warehouse or loading dock accidents
- Construction accidents
- Accidents in public employment, including police and firefighters
- Health care accidents
- Accidents resulting from dangerous property conditions
The soft tissue injuries typically experienced after an accident are sprains, strains, contusions, tendonitis, bursitis and stress injuries. These injuries, if left untreated, can develop into serious conditions that may require therapy and surgery.
Types of Soft Tissue Injuries
To learn about your right to payment for soft tissue injuries suffered on the job, speak with our Austin workers compensation lawyer. Our firm represents claims for benefits in the workers comp Texas system and damages claims in negligence lawsuits. Whenever possible, we will use both approaches to get what you need to support your family through a long recovery period.
If your employer is covered under the Texas workers compensation system, we can protect you from the problems that can result from a misdiagnosed condition, a denied claim or premature termination of your benefits.
In the event that your company does not subscribe to workers compensation, we can proceed directly toward a personal injury lawsuit for negligent damages against your employer or any other defendant who can be held accountable for your injuries. No matter the situation, we will explore every possible source of compensation for you.
