Types of Soft Tissue Injuries that Could Result
in Long Term Disability in Brampton
- Tendon injuries
There are several types of soft tissue injuries that can affect your tendons. Bursitis, tendonitis, dislocations and broken bones that injure and displace the surrounding soft tissues can cause long-lasting pain and life-long chronic pain.
- Nerve injuries
Injuries that result in nerve damage can be short or long-term. Sometimes the neurologic pathways that are injured can heal themselves, sometimes they cannot and chronic pain can be a result. You may also not be able to grab or grip items with your hand or may suffer from permanent tingles in your extremities
- Injuries to arteries & veins
If you’ve suffered from an injury to veins or arteries, blood flow to organs or extremities might make you more susceptible to sitting for long periods of time, hot or cold temperature fluxes, standing in one spot, or could decrease mobility. Any of these injuries could result in a long-term disability.
- Injuries to the lymphatic system
Some medical treatments can lead to injuries involving the lymphatic system. Tumors or scars from surgery could be a secondary cause of long-term disability due to soft tissue injury. They can also cause chronic pain that needs long-term care.
Severe burns can cause a lifetime of problems – from mobility issues to chronic pain. These are sometimes less difficult to prove in a long-term disability insurance situation because the injuries are easier to see, but ensuring you’re taken care of in its entirety will likely require a lawyer’s help.
- Hearing Loss
The tympanic membrane inside your ear can be damaged from loud noises, pressure changes, and other types of injury and accidents, permanently affecting your hearing. These soft tissue injuries are sometimes created over time but can cause long-term issues such as permanent hearing loss or tinnitus.
