What Do Soft Tissues Do in the Body?

The soft tissues of the body include the fat, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, lymph vessels, and nerves. Traffic crashes are a common occurrence in Boulder County, and soft tissue injuries are among the most common injuries sustained in these accidents. Soft tissues can also be injured in other types of accidents, including falls. If you have suffered soft tissue injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for compensation.

Soft tissues are located all throughout the body. They help to:

  • Surround, support, and connect organs and body parts
  • Give shape to the body’s structure
  • Protect the organs
  • Store energy
  • Move fluids, such as blood, from one part of the body to another

What Are Types of Soft Tissue Injuries?

Soft tissue injuries can be classified into two different categories according to the way they occurred:

  • Acute soft tissue injuries are caused by sudden trauma to the body. Damage to the soft tissues can occur with a blow, twist, or fall.
  • Overuse soft tissue injuries include bursitis and tendinitis. These injuries can occur over time in athletes, workers, and individuals whose activities involve repetitive motions, using the same body parts repeatedly and frequently, so they have no chance to heal from the strain.

Any injury to ligaments, tendons, muscles, or another soft area of the body is considered a soft tissue injury. Examples include:

  • Contusions: These are bruises caused by trauma to the tissues.
  • Sprains: Caused by an overextension of the joints, sprains involve damage to ligaments.
  • Strains: This type of injury is caused by the overuse of a muscle or tendon.

What Are Common Causes of Soft Tissue Injuries?

A total of 2,746,000 people were injured in traffic crashes in the U.S. in a single recent year, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of soft tissue injuries. Soft tissues can be injured when the force of a collision causes vehicle occupants to be jolted or bumped around. Other common causes of soft tissue injuries include falls, construction accidents, and other work-related accidents and injuries.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Soft Tissue Injuries?

Who is liable for soft tissue injuries will depend on the nature of the injuries and where they occurred. For example, if you suffered soft tissue injuries in a slip and fall accident in a restaurant, the business owner may be liable for your injuries, depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident. If your injuries were sustained in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, the at-fault driver may be liable. If you suffered on-the-job soft tissue injuries, your employer may be liable.
