I have been injured in a minor car accident in Clydebank and have soft tissue injuries, should I claim?

Soft tissue injuries occur when there is trauma to the softer areas of the body such as the ligaments, tendons and muscles rather than the bone itself. Parts of the body that are likely to receive this type of injury in a car accident in Clydebank include the face, limbs, back, neck and joints.

While comparatively minor and non-life-threatening, they can still cause pain and discomfort. Sometimes symptoms can show up weeks or months after the accident has happened because the initial diagnosis was incorrect.

Soft tissue injuries can cause headaches, stiffness, spasms, nausea, extreme tiredness, numbness or pins and needles. Localised swelling, bruising and tenderness may occur in the affected area, resulting in time off work and loss of income.

There are several common types to be found in car accidents including:

  • Whiplash – Is probably the most common type of injury as the soft tissue in the neck is stretched and torn.
  • Sprains – Are caused by the ligament surrounding a joint being stretched, torn or twisted. Ankles, knees and wrists are common sites for this type of injury in car accidents.
  • Strains – Are found when the connective fibres of muscles are stretched, and can be caused by a sudden forceful impact. Back and leg muscles are the most common areas for strain injuries.
