Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

Back injuries and other soft tissue injuries can be very painful and may leave victims with severely limited mobility. Motor vehicle accidents and falls are the primary causes of back and soft tissues injuries. Even a minor fender bender can result in serious soft tissue injuries, including back injuries and whiplash. Diagnosing and treating these injuries can be very expensive, resulting in high medical bills—in addition to lost wages due to time out of work. Fortunately, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries from your insurance company or the responsible party; therefore, if you have been injured in a Colorado automobile or motorcycle accident, it is recommended that you consult an experienced personal injury attorney who handles back injury and soft tissue injury cases.

Back and Soft Tissue Injuries from Automobile Accidents

Sudden trauma, including a direct blow or abrupt movement, is often the cause of back and soft tissue injuries. In a car or motorcycle accident, victims may suffer soft tissue injuries in their back, shoulders, or neck even during low speed accidents. Whiplash, a soft tissue injury in the neck, is a common form of soft tissue injury sustained in automobile accidents. Back injuries and soft tissue injuries may also result from a slip and fall accident on a wet or slippery surface.

Some of the more common back and soft tissue injuries include:

  • Herniated or Ruptured Discs
  • Strained Muscles or Tendons
  • Sprained Ligaments
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Whiplash
  • Torn Rotator Cuffs
  • And more

It is important to see a doctor soon after you have been in an automobile, motorcycle, or other accident. Symptoms of back and other soft tissue injuries often do not appear until a day or more following an auto accident.

Diagnosing Back and Soft Tissue Injuries

It can be difficult for doctors to diagnose back and other soft tissue injuries, because these injuries often do not show up on standard imaging equipment, including x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. Automobile accident victims often undergo these tests only to find out the tests were unable to detect their injuries. In this case, doctors will generally treat automobile accident victims and other accident victims for soft tissue injuries based upon a physical examination and the patient’s symptoms.
