Some of the most common injuries resulting from a Dallas-Fort Worth traffic collision typically involve muscle strains and sprains resulting in damage to the accident victim’s soft tissue. One of the most common versions of this type of injury regularly experienced in a car crash is whiplash. Unfortunately for personal injury victims, liable insurance companies regularly refuse to pay the fair compensation necessary for the victim to undergo the chiropractic treatment necessary to help heal the damaged tissue. However proper treatment is essential in order to minimize the risk of re-injury occurring. In most occasions, accident victims are unable to get the maximum compensation they deserve for their soft tissue injuries without the aid of a board certified personal injury attorney.
What is a soft tissue injury?Whenever muscle tissue is damaged, there will be a prolonged healing process. Initially, the patient’s body will attempt to repair the damaged tissue by binding the rip or tear with scar tissue (collagen). This bulky fibrous tissue is never as flexible as the original tissue it replaces however, meaning that extensive chiropractic therapy is often essential in order to remodel the scar tissue so that it more closely resembles the muscle tissue it is replaces. This is accomplished through a combination of deep tissue massage, adjusting joints, flexion distraction, and active release techniques. Chiropractic treatment often yields better results than general medical treatment for patients who have suffered soft tissue injuries as general doctors only prescribe painkillers to alleviate the symptoms, whereas chiropractors will treat the source of the pain.
Beware of insurance adjustors who argue that chiropractic treatment is either unnecessary or too expensive. It is their job to deny claims for compensation so that they can pay you as little money as possible. They do not care whether you receive the full and proper treatment you need and deserve. However, you did not ask to be injured by their insured driver, so you are entitled to the medical treatment you require. Consulting with a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer as soon as possible is often the best way to ensure your legal rights are protected and that you have the best possible chance of recovering the full and fair compensation you are entitled to under Texas law.
