Worth of Soft Tissue Car Accident Injury Claim in West Virginia

Many people who are injured in a car accident believe that their case is worth a lot of money; however, the amount of the settlement for a soft tissue injury is often based on the seriousness of the injury.

If you were recently injured in a car accident in West Virginia, a personal injury lawyer can help you negotiate with the insurance company to obtain a fair settlement for your soft tissue injuries.

The term “soft tissue injury” covers a wide range of medical conditions, such as strains, strains, contusions, and more. If you went to the emergency room for a sprain after your car accident and received no further medical treatment, the insurance company will offer you far less than a person who needed surgical correction for his or her soft tissue injury.

Even if your soft tissue damage required serious treatment, some insurance companies are skeptical of soft tissue claims.

Because these types of injuries are not easily seen on diagnostic imaging equipment, such as MRIs and X-rays, the insurance company may offer a lower settlement that won’t even cover all of your medical bills. If this is the case, a Harrison County personal injury attorney can consult with your doctor to get the evidence necessary for reasonable compensation.
