Any kind of soft tissue injury can be very damaging for a person hurt in a vehicle accident. Tendonitis falls under the category of soft tissue injuries which are especially hard to prove to insurance companies and an at fault party as being a legitimate injury for the compensation.
If you have recently been diagnosed with tendonitis, you could have a long road to recovery ahead of you. Knowing your options and discussing your treatment with your doctor might also lead you to realize that hefty medical bills could follow.
Having an experienced San Francisco personal injury lawyer at your side to guide you through the process of fighting for compensation for tendonitis and related injuries can be extremely important for your ability to recover full and fair compensation. Tendonitis occurs when an area of the body has been overused due to repetitive motions in most common injuries. However, this can be caused by a vehicle accident in California when the forces on the individual’s tendon are sudden and direct. One such example is known as rotator cuff tendonitis. If a rotator cuff has been severely injured from a sudden impact like a car accident, the affected area can develop tendonitis. This could lead to pain and stiffness when a patient lifts the arm over their head.
Soft tissue injuries can happen anytime that tendons, ligaments or muscles within the body are damaged. Scheduling a consultation with a San Francisco personal injury lawyer is the best way to ensure that you have appropriate protection and an advocate at your side to fight on your behalf when it comes to recovering compensation for these devastating and long lasting injuries. A lawyer who is comfortable gathering the evidence for your soft tissue injury will help you understand how to present this information and what it means for your case.
