What is a soft tissue injury claim?

Your soft tissue surrounds and connects your internal organs to other tissues in the body. Muscles, blood vessels and lymph vessels are all examples of soft tissue that make up our anatomy.

If you’ve suffered damage to this tissue as a result of someone else’s negligence – for example, through an accident at work – you could make a soft tissue injury claim.

Some of the most common types of soft tissue injury include:

But this isn’t an exhaustive list. If you’ve sustained a soft tissue injury and it wasn’t your fault, we could help you take the first step towards compensation and support.

Common causes of soft tissue injuries

Soft tissue damage can occur when our muscles, ligaments or tendons experience an unexpected or repeated trauma. Some of the most common causes of soft tissue injuries include:

If your soft tissue injury was caused by the negligence of another person, you could be entitled to make a soft tissue injury claim against them. We can help you navigate this process.

How First4Lawyers can help

Soft tissue injuries can be debilitating. Without the proper attention and time given for a soft tissue injury to heal, the damage can even become permanent.

Making a claim for compensation could help you to cover the cost of necessary medical care. This could include private physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory medicines and walking aids – all of which will support you on your road to recovery.

We work with specialist personal injury solicitors who are experienced in handling these types of claims. They will work on your behalf to build a strong case and secure you the best outcome possible.

For personal injury claims, we work on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning you’ll have nothing to pay upfront. And if your claim is unsuccessful, there is no cost to you.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

Soft tissue damage claims FAQs

Is there a time limit for soft tissue injury claims?

In most cases, there is a time limit of three years for soft tissue damage claims. While this may seem like a long time, we would advise seeking legal advice as early as you can.

Starting your claim sooner will make it easier for your solicitor to build a strong case, using recent evidence to support your claim. This could include your own memories, witness testimonies as well as your medical records.

How much compensation can I claim for soft tissue damage?

Your situation is unique. This means that without a consultation, it’s difficult to say exactly how much compensation you could be entitled to.

The value of your soft tissue injury claim will depend largely on the pain and suffering you’ve endured as well as the impact the injury has had on your life.

Part of your solicitor’s job will be to gather evidence that reflects the severity of the harm caused and how this will affect you going forward. They will use this evidence to support your claim and secure you the compensation you deserve.
