Being involved in an accident can mean you could potentially suffer all kinds of injuries. Fractures, dislocations, cuts and bruises are all a possibility, depending on the kind of accident you have and how severe it is.
Soft tissue injuries are incredibly common and can involve extensive bruising. For example, if you are in a car accident and you are wearing a seat-belt, the force caused by being thrown against the belt can often cause soft tissue injuries and bruising.
These can be severe and affect several areas of your body where the seat-belt has prevented you from being thrown out of the vehicle.
While soft tissue injuries and bruising usually heal in a fairly short space of time, but they are still painful and unsightly while you have them. It is not uncommon to suffer some swelling in the area where the bruising occurs too, and for the area to be tender for several days afterwards.
Any accident that someone else is the cause of that leads you to suffer from soft tissue injuries could put you in a position to claim soft tissue injury compensation. To find out for sure, it is best to seek advice from a professional injury compensation lawyer.
They will have the experience to be able to assess your situation and to determine whether you are indeed entitled to receive an amount in compensation.
