Soft Tissue & Ankle Ligament Injury
One of the most common types of personal injury, soft tissue injuries affect muscles and joints and include sprains, strains, dislocation and bruising. Such injuries can occur due to a variety of causes - for example, you may be the victim of a road traffic accident or a sporting accident, or your injuries could have been caused simply by a slip or trip.
If your soft tissue injury was caused by an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to receive compensation - so start your online claim today with Claims Direct.

Sprains and strains
Sprains and strains can be immobilising. Sprains are caused by a sharp stretch or tear to one or more ligaments - which are the tissues connecting bones. Although sprains can happen to any joint, they are most common in the ankle and frequently need to heal in a plaster cast. Sprains can cause pain, swelling, bruising and reduced ability or complete inability to use the affected joint.
Strains are a less severe personal injury than sprains but are still accompanied by some pain. Strains are caused by twisting or pulling a muscle and/or tendon and can be the result of a one-off incident or following long-term, repetitive overuse. The most common areas in which sprains occur are the back or the hamstring (the back of the thigh). Symptoms of a strain are pain, limited motion and muscle spasms or weakness.
Dislocations and bruising
A dislocation is when a bone is dislodged from a joint. Often extremely painful, dislocations can damage nerves and blood vessels, causing bruising, swelling and distortion of the joint. Other symptoms include a sudden pain and loss of movement.
