Soft tissue is a term that refers to basically everything in the human body that is not bone; this includes muscle, internal organs, the brain and even the heart. Most injuries involving soft tissue result from a sprain, strain or contusion of some sort. When these occur, there are several ways to treat them, and sometimes they may not even require medical attention. There are some soft tissue injuries that are very serious and require immediate attention if possible.
An injury that involves soft tissue could be deep cuts and other lacerations. These wounds could be very serious due to blood loss and exposure; these wounds can also lead to other issues such as infection. Soft tissue injuries can occur both at home and at work; while at work it is the employer's responsibility to maintain a safe work environment.
If you have suffered soft tissue injuries at work then you may be able to collect monetary compensation for your injuries. If you have suffered soft tissue injuries due to someone else's negligence in general then you may be able to collect monetary damages from the liable parties.
