Soft Tissue Injuries After a Car Accident in Boca Raton


Car accidents happen every day and everywhere, so when you need a Boca Raton car accident lawyer you need to call the local lawyers. Our office is regularly told that car accident lawyer David Shiner comes up at the top of the search results when people search for a car accident lawyer near me.

Car injury victims involved in a Boca Raton car accident who lack the benefit of legal representation may, unfortunately, be at a disadvantage with respect to obtaining financial compensation.

Insurance companies, particularly large national chains, have virtually unlimited litigation resources at their disposal and may employ innovative litigation strategies to minimally satisfy a victim’s claim.

In most cases, insurance companies do not advocate for the victim and instead may attempt to shift fault, downplay the severity of injuries, attribute medical concerns to preexisting conditions, or attack the type and extent of medical treatment obtained by those who have sustained an injury in a motor vehicle collision.

By hiring an experienced car accident attorney who possesses an in-depth knowledge of personal injury, you can receive the fair and just compensation you deserve – even when insurance companies fail to uphold their duty of good faith.

For over 15 years, our award-winning law firm has handled thousands of personal injury cases throughout Florida because we are committed to providing sound legal solutions and obtaining substantial, favorable results.

Identifying Minor Impact Soft Tissue (MIST) Injuries

When you are pursuing financial compensation for an accident caused by another motorist’s negligence, it is important to understand that not all injuries manifest in the immediate aftermath of the collision. In fact, some injuries can become apparent after several days.

Whiplash is a common delayed injury that affects the muscles and ligaments in the victim’s neck and shoulders. Whiplash occurs from the dramatic acceleration and deceleration of the victim’s body caused by the transfer of force between two vehicles colliding, creating a whipping motion.

Symptoms generally include neck pain, headache, shoulder pain, stiffness, dizziness, fatigue, jaw pain, arm pain, and weakness, and can signal torn ligaments, dislocations, and other injuries that may require medical scanning.

Other injuries may include damage to the victim’s hands, wrists, and arms, as the force of the collision may cause the victim to strike the dashboard or become entangled with the steering wheel or seatbelt. Physical injury to the hands, wrists, and arms can severely limit a person’s capacity to perform daily activities.

Indeed, while these injuries may not be fatal for the victim, they can ultimately reduce the victim’s quality of life.

Insurance Tactics in a MIST Personal Injury Claim

In the event of an accident, an insurance adjuster will conduct an evaluation of the claim and classify it as a minor soft tissue injury case. This allows insurance companies to argue that the victim’s injuries are proportional to the property damage sustained in an accident. If the value of property damage is low, the insurance company will suggest the accident could not have reasonably caused the victim’s injuries.

It is important to understand, however, that these claims are often made in the absence of critical evidence or eyewitness testimony.
