Can a Soft Tissue Injury Be Worth $1 Million?
Insurance companies love to say you only have a soft tissue injury! They try to make it sound like it’s not worth much money.
The fact is that some soft tissue injuries are not worth much money. If you have a sprain that goes away in a few days, it’s not worth much money and it’s not likely you will find a million dollar lawyer willing to take your case.
However, soft tissue injuries can easily be worth $1 million or more. Many soft tissue injuries require surgery and will result in serious permanent restrictions and mobility and substantial pain. These types of injuries usually get worse over time and can be severely debilitating later in life.
In my law practice, we have settled several soft tissue neck and back injuries for $1 million and more where surgery was required. In each of these cases, our clients even had previous existing injuries and prior surgery. Our client was that the previous existing injury was made much worse.
Some of the types of soft tissue injuries that can result in settlements or verdicts of near $1 million or more are:
- Torn ligaments of the neck, back, shoulder, wrist, knee or ankle
Technically, a concussion or hemorrhage/hematoma in the brain is a soft tissue injury that is usually worth $1 million or more.
If you have a soft tissue injury from an accident, don’t decide yourself whether it’s worth pursuing. Call a personal injury lawyer for a free consultation to find out if your soft tissue injury is worth pursuing.
