The majority of soft tissue injuries resolve fairly quickly – however some don’t. While we always encourage clients to call us to learn about their rights and discuss their case with us, we often initially tell people to give physiotherapy and the passage of time a fair try before pursuing a lawsuit.
We have a reputation for being lawyers who do not take on frivolous cases, and it’s a reputation we value. When we do take on a whiplash or soft tissue injury case, it’s because physiotherapy and time have not cured the injury. It’s because the injury is still there, and still causing pain and disruption in a client’s life.
At that point, it’s our job to step in.
Soft tissue injuries are often invisible and may not have as extensive a medical history as other injuries. There may also be no X-ray or CT or MRI evidence for them. You may be told — and believe — that you should be able to recover quickly, and be upset when you can’t.
The lack of support and understanding can be difficult to deal with. We can help.
