Injuries Commonly Suffered in Southwest Florida Accidents

Injuries sustained in automobile, motorcycle, pedestrian, bicycle, or golf cart accidents can range from minor, to severe, to deadly.  At GTS, we help our clients obtain fair compensation for their injuries suffered as a result of another’s negligence.  Below are the most common injuries suffered in accidents.

SOFT TISSUE (CONNECTIVE TISSUE) INJURIES

Soft tissue injuries are one of the most common injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Insurance companies, their adjusters, and attorneys often refer to soft tissue injuries as “whiplash” because the term to many implies an injury that isn’t real or serious.  Rest assured, and certainly ask anyone who suffers from a soft tissue injury – this injury is real and can be life changing depending on its severity.  It has been reported by the Mayo Clinic that soft tissue injuries are caused by forceful, rapid back-and-forth movements of the neck and back. Soft tissue injuries can develop immediately after an accident or can take a few days to become apparent.  In some cases, an injured party might not realize the severity of their soft tissue injuries for weeks after an accident.

Seeking medical care at the onset of symptoms is critical.  Soft tissue injuries can bring about severe neck and back pain, limited range of motion, and radiating arm and leg pain.  The earlier these injuries are treated, the less likely continuing complications become.  While many people try to “power through” soft tissue injuries by relying on over-the-counter pain medication, a medical plan developed by your doctor is your best course of action. 

Soft tissue can worsen, or will be worse if:

              *Have prior soft tissue problems

              *The older you are, the worse soft tissue injuries will affect you

              *Have prior neck or back problems
