Soft Tissue Injuries Attorney in Kansas City, Missouri
Securing Fair and Just Compensation for Your
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries — strains, sprains and tears of soft tissues like muscles, tendons and ligaments — are compensable under Kansas and Missouri workers' compensation schemes regardless of fault. If you have suffered a repetitive stress injury, whiplash, a sprain or a strain, you need a confident, qualified and experienced Kansas City area workers' comp lawyer.
Soft tissue injuries can be painful and expensive: initial medical expenses, physical therapy and time missed from work are all potential consequences of being hurt on the job or developing a repetitive stress disorder.

Workers' Compensation Benefits Are Available
for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive motion disorder. It is caused when repetitive stress is placed on the wrist, which causes compression of the median nerve going from the wrist into the hand. Symptoms of carpal tunnel include:
Pain, numbness or tingling in the hand, wrist and forearm
Loss of nerve function
Loss of grip strength
Deterioration of muscle control
Depending on the facts of your case, carpal tunnel syndrome can be compensable under Kansas and Missouri workers' compensation laws. Like other work-related injuries, benefits can include payment for medical care and compensation for any permanent disability or impairment.
If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, the Law Office Of John Adams Christiansen, LC, can help. John has years of experience representing clients who have suffered repetitive stress injuries in the workplace.
Other Occupational Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries can result from a one-off accident like a motor vehicle crash or slip-and-fall scenario, but they can also result from repetitive stress such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Some examples of other common soft tissue injuries include:
Sprains: The stretching or tearing of ligaments.
Strains: The stretching or tearing of tendons or muscles.
Contusions: Bruises caused by a blow to a muscle, tendon or ligament.
Tendinitis: An inflammation of a tendon or the covering of a tendon, and it is usually accompanied by swelling, heat, redness and pain.
Bursitis: Occurs when swelling and irritation to the soft tissue occur from repeated small stresses and overuse.
Tears: Tearing of the soft tissue such as ligaments, tendons or muscles.
Whiplash: Overextension of the neck muscles and tendons that can range from mild to severe.
Are you suffering from whiplash caused by a rear-end accident while you were on the job? You may be eligible for both workers' compensation benefits and recovery for personal injury damages. Talk to attorney John Christiansen about the facts of your case.
