A soft tissue injury compensation claim mostly covers any injury to ligaments, tendons or muscles, but can also include compensation claims for injuries sustained to the nervous system, blood vessels or skin. Injuries caused to any of these parts of the body due to negligence or a lack of care by a third party qualifies you to make a claim for soft tissue injury compensation.
A soft tissue injury claim can originate from any negligent act in almost any daily situation. Whether it is an injury sustained in a work environment due to a lack of protective equipment or repetitive movement, or one which is the result of a road traffic accident which leaves the victim with whiplash, these are just a few of the most common incidents leading to a claim for soft tissue injury compensation.
Whatever the circumstances are for sustaining a soft tissue injury, your first priority should be to seek urgent medical attention. Soft tissue injuries which are not properly treated can manifest into long term health issues – especially those concerning the soft tissues of the leg, which can leave the victim crippled for life. Only once you have ensured that there is no risk to your physical wellbeing should you consult with a solicitor about a soft tissue injury claim for compensation.
Making a Soft Tissue Injury Compensation Claim
Making a soft tissue injury compensation claim is best done with the assistance of an experienced specialised personal injury claims solicitor if you want to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation for a soft tissue injury. The potential exists for being undercompensated if your application to the Injuries Board Ireland is not completed comprehensively and does not include the full range of special damages you might be entitled to as a consequence of your soft tissue injury.
These would include out of pocket expenses for travelling to the hospital and receiving medical treatment plus any ongoing costs for medication, the provision of care and expenses you might incur if your injury prevents you from driving or performing regular household chores. Furthermore, if your soft tissue injury prevents you from working, your soft tissue compensation claim would also have to include an element for loss of earnings.
