While every personal injury case is unique in terms of the type and severity of trauma involved, in addition to the degree or duration to which the claimant has been subjected to pain and suffering, most injuries resulting from occurrences involving low impact motor vehicle and work place accidents, slip and fall, employers and public liability situations and other types of non high impact accidents are for the most part very often classified as "soft tissue injuries" by the medical profession.
Yet this category of injury accounts for a significantly high proportion of rehabilitation cost, sometimes involving a protracted recovery period.
"Soft tissue" injuries can cause damage that lasts from a couple of weeks to several months and sometimes even for the rest of the claimant's life. Insurers are often perplexed and sometimes express difficulty and frustration with reconciling the classification of "soft tissue" with the eventual claims cost including the cost of rehabilitation.
