Common body part injuries from car accidents and slip and falls involve injuries to hands, ankles, shoulders and back. Some of the most serious injuries occur when these parts are broken or fractured. However, another common type of injury which often receives little respect from an insurance company and their adjuster are soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries like whiplash and tears to ligaments can be sometimes as debilitating as a broken bone. In fact it is possible that some soft tissue injuries can be a permanent injury.
The worst part of trying to settle a bodily injury claim with an insurance adjuster, especially a soft tissue injury, is that he or she will use a computer software program to decide what your claim is worth. Of course, the most troubling part of this practice is the issue of how a computer can evaluate your current pain and suffering, including your future pain and suffering.
A good piece of advice if you have been injured in a car accident or slip and fall, is to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights. The sooner you act the better, because there are time limits in Florida to file a lawsuit (statute of limitations).
