There are many types of injuries that car accident victims suffer from. One common type of injury is known as a soft tissue injury. When people hear that term, they often think about neck pain and whiplash that occurs in rear-end car accidents. However, the reality is that soft tissue injuries don’t just affect the neck, and they can be quite serious.

Soft tissue injuries don’t only occur in minor fender benders. In fact, a soft tissue injury can impact a victim in any type of accident including car accidents, trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents. A soft tissue injury is an injury to anything besides the bones. When muscles, tendons, or ligaments in the body are injured, microscopic tears can occur that can cause excruciating pain. Sometimes, soft tissue injuries like ligament injuries can be very serious and lead to permanent pain and problems.
