Soft Tissue Injury
Matthew Dubin: The most common injuries I see in my clients are soft tissue or whiplash injuries.
The soft tissues in the body include the muscles, tendons and ligaments. And when the body is thrown around in an auto accident, those soft tissues can be stretched or torn. In an auto accident, the occupant’s body is thrown around in ways it wasn’t designed to go, sometimes very violently. It’s very common for soft tissue injuries to be unnoticed for days, sometimes even weeks. It’s generally advisable any time you’ve been involved in an auto accident to go to the emergency room or to your doctor and get checked out. I see my job as giving my clients the information and the tools they need to get the best possible outcome for them through the legal system. Dealing with a personal injury is bad enough, but when you have to deal with the insurance company too, the stress and the inconvenience of that can become too much. My job is to do all the worrying for my client so they can focus on getting better and getting back to their everyday life.
