What is Soft Tissue Injuries?
Definition of Soft Tissue Injuries
The result of the injury is more important than the cause. The SSA is likely to exam the claimant’s ability to function after the injury has taken place. A common example of this type of injury is a major facial burn. The claimant must show the burn is not likely to heal within 12 months of any surgery or the accident itself. Note that in this case as well as in other injuries, complications stemming from the injury will go a long way in helping your case. Complications such as infections and necessary therapies will aid the SSA in making a decision favorable to your case. Children are treated the same as adults.
