What are Muscles, Tendons, and Ligaments?

Muscles, tendons, and ligaments are all considered soft tissue, and each plays a different role in making our bodies move. Here is how they do that:

  • Muscle: Muscles contract and relax, making our bones move in different directions
  • Tendons: Tendons are connective tissues that attach muscle to bone
  • Ligaments: Ligaments are also connective tissues, but they attach bones to bones at our joints

Common Muscle, Tendon, and Ligament Injuries

Soft tissue injuries usually come in the form of sprains, strains, contusions, and tears. Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. has handled many of these types of injury claims over the decades. Here are the most common causes for these injuries our clients have endured:

Compensation for Damages in a Soft Tissue Injury Claim

Many muscle, ligament, tendon, and other soft tissue injuries will heal on their own with rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Other ligament injuries will require extensive physical therapy or surgery. Depending on the extent of your injury and the treatment needed to remedy it, you could be entitled to compensation for such damages as:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills related to your injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Household and vehicle modifications
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of career or earning capacity
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Hedonic damages for loss of joy of life
