Can soft tissue injuries really result in long term medical treatment? Stockbridge, Georgia woman injured on Interstate 75 in McDonough, Georgia

The answer is an unequivocal “yes”.  While the insurance industry often tries to downplay the significance of soft tissue injuries based upon the lack of “objective evidence” in an X Ray, the truth is that millions of people suffer from soft tissue injuries resulting from car collisions.  While an X Ray often times won’t reveal the presence of a soft tissue injury, there are plenty of other signs that one can use to establish the existence of the injury.  For example, the lawyers at SMITH, WELCH, WEBB & WHITE, LLC recently represented a Stockbridge, Georgia woman injured when her vehicle was rear ended by a work truck on Interstate 75 in McDonough, Henry County, Georgia.  Although her X Ray was negative, her treating physician documented several things during the course of her treatment that proved helpful in establishing her injuries, including a decreased cervical range of motion (decrease in flexion and extension of the joints in the cervical spine) and some sensory impairment.  In this case, conservative treatment lasted for nearly a year and the prognosis included long term residual muscle pain and neck stiffness.  As is the case in every injury, documentation of all aspects of the injury are crucial.
