Soft Tissue Injuries Lawyer San Jose Santa Clara County Whiplash Attorney


Serving the Bay Area including: San Jose, Sunnyvale, Milpitas, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Fremont, Oakland, San Francisco and surrounding communities.

A car crash or other motor vehicle accident that may on the surface seem little more than a fender bender can often result in injury. Because the pain one feels in a case of whiplash is delayed, victims of a rear-ender are sometimes accused of trumping up imaginary aches and pains to bleed more money out of the party responsible.

Attorney Geoffrey Nwosu understands the specific nature of soft tissue injuries and the intensity of the pain that can follow. Rely on our firm to help you get the compensation you deserve following your accident.

Soft Tissue Injury Cases

Not all injuries involve major surgery or catastrophic / life threatening results. When an accident causes your muscles and tendons to be pulled or stretched, then your soft tissue injuries need care also. San Jose injury lawyer Geoffrey Nwosu understands that you may have to live with pain and the resulting suffering for a number of years, or even for the rest of your life.  Soft tissue (often whiplash) injuries can cause:

  • Back spasms and strains
  • Bulging discs
  • Chronic back and neck pain

What to Do if You Have a Soft Tissue Injury

1 . Tell your Doctor as soon as you notice the pain.  You may not have noticed the pain at the time of the accident. It may have appeared hours later, or even the two days later. The sooner you report the injury to your doctor, the better your chances may be to connect your injury to the accident.

When the Pain Is Delayed

People who sustain whiplash or soft tissue injuries in car accidents may not even be aware at first that they have sustained an injury. The pain is often delayed, but it does come. Symptoms may include headache, sleeplessness, and pain radiating into the shoulders, lower back or even into the legs.  Often times, these types of injuries do not show up on MRIs and X-rays" and delete the sentence about chiropractic procedures.

2 . Do not accept low-ball insurance company offers, especially if your doctor tells you that you have to live with the pain. You may have a right to seek compensation for pain and suffering, and chiropractor and other medical bills.

3. Contact Geoffrey Nwosu. The sooner an experienced attorney goes to work on your case, the better your chances for a positive result.
