Whiplash is what is known as a soft tissue injury, and is just one of many that can happen anywhere in the body. Our skeleton could not function with our soft tissues, which are our muscles, tendons and ligaments. They are not the softest tissues in our bodies by any means, but as they work so hard in conjunction with with our bones, they are called this, as they are soft in comparison to them.
There is an old song that traces the bones from our feet to our head, connecting them as they go, but without our ligaments some bones would be unattached.
Without our muscles our bones would not be able to move, and without our tendons there would be nothing to attach the muscles to the bones.
You can see just how important our soft tissues are, and how an injury to them can be very painful and disabling. If you sustain soft tissue injury caused by someone else, you might be able to make a Selby ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim for compensation.
Making a Selby ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim for a sprain
Many of the injuries to soft tissues, whiplash being one of them, are referred to as a sprain. This can be caused by excessive force or pressure on the soft tissues, and then they can stretch or be torn.
Given time, they generally heal themselves, but the time needed depends on the severity of the injury. They generally leave no side effects either, but this might not be the case with a severe sprain, which can leave a weakness in the muscle that has been damaged.
If you have sustained an injury of any sort, including a soft tissue injury, that was caused through the actions of someone else, making a Selby ‘no win, no fee*’ accident claim is an option available to you.
