What is a soft tissue injury?
‘Soft tissue injury’ is the term used to describe injuries which affect nerves, tendons, ligaments and muscles. They are incredibly painful and worse, such injuries can have long lasting, painful effects on your life, along with the worries of ongoing medical expenses and being unsure of when you may heal.
The most common types of soft tissue injuries consist of
- stress injuries
- bursitis, and
They can happen anywhere as a result of any kind of some physical trauma, such as:
- Slips and trips in a public place or in your own home
- Workplace accidents where the direct cause is from having suffered an injury at work
- Road traffic accidents, with whiplash claims one of the most common compensation payouts.
The most familiar example of soft tissue injuries is whiplash. While road accidents can often be minor, the soft tissue whiplash injury that results from such a crash may not always be straight-forward to recover from. A severe injury will lead to long term symptoms. It may even result in financial losses.

Common symptoms of soft tissue injuries
When soft tissue is damaged, there is usually immediate pain along with immediate or delayed swelling. Stiffness is also common as a result of the trauma and swelling. Bruising may also develop after 24-48 hours.
The type of injury will vary:
- Bursitis: This is the inflammation of a bursa (essentially sacs that surround joints) due to repeated stress overuse.
Contusion: Resulting from a muscle bruise caused by a direct blow.
- Muscle Sprains: These are injuries to ligaments or joint capsules that can be caused by overstretching.
Muscle Strains: These are traumatic stretching or tear to a tendon, muscle or even connected groups of muscles and tendons.
- Tendinitis: Is the irritation or inflammation or either a tendon or the sheath covering it, caused by repeated stress or overuse. It’s most common from an injury at work personal injury claim.
Depending on how the injury happened and how your body is showing the trauma it has just suffered, your doctor will need to conduct a thorough examination. If you have any concerns, call us and our Lawyers will happily advise next steps for you.
What evidence is required?
Soft tissue injuries can be hard to prove as they often do not show up using diagnostic tools, in the same way as some other injuries do. For example, a broken bone will show up clearly on an X-ray.
This is why it is vital that if you suffer a soft tissue injury, you get medical treatment as soon as possible. Not only will the doctor’s treatment help you recover, but more importantly, the medical records will serve as a stronger source of proof of your injury.
For all soft tissue injury claims, examples of evidence could include a combination of:
- Accident book records
- The medical report and opinions, which will also help you identify medical negligence
- Witness statements
- CCTV footage
