Soft Tissue Injury Settlement Ontario

A soft tissue injury is damage from ligaments, muscles or tendons resulting from trauma or overuse. This can happen from sudden uncontrolled movements, like a slip trip and fall accident. Strains are caused by overstretching or tearing of muscles or tendons, and sprains occur from over-stretching a ligament. There are three different grades of soft tissue injuries.

These include:

  • 1. Mild: Small tears in fibers and minimal swelling.
  • 2. Moderate: Partial tears and swelling. Increased pain especially when applying weight on injured area.
  • 3. Severe: Complete ruptures with much swelling. Extreme pain and inability to use injured area.

Depending on how severe the injury, soft tissue injuries can take weeks or even months to recover. If you leave it untreated the severity of the injury will increase. That is why it is crucial to seek medical attention any time you feel pain following an accident. A doctor or other medical professional can give the proper advice you need to recover quickly and safely. Physical therapy may be recommended to treat the injury. Don’t underestimate the effects a soft tissue injury can have on your life after an accident. It can cause a tremendous amount of pain, limit your ability to move and get around, and prevent you from being an active participant in your own life.

Yianniko fights for us (his clients) as if he were fighting for himself. He leaves nothing to chance and is extremely knowledgeable and prepared. There’s no one better to have as representation.
