Muscle Injury Compensation Claim
When you sustain any kind of injury, it can be extremely problematic. Muscle injuries, for example, can prevent yours from being able to move as you should, lift heavy weights and cause long-term pain. Any kind of muscle injury can cause serious problems, particularly if it causes long-term symptoms.

What is a Muscle Injury?
A muscle injury is commonly caused by a sprain or strain. A sprain will occur when one or more muscle ligaments are stretched, twisted or torn. A muscle strain, more commonly known as “pulling a muscle” happens when muscle tissues are stretched or torn. The injuries can be painful, tender and make the affected muscle much weaker for the duration of the injury.
In addition to the relatively common injuries that we can suffer, there are also more serious kinds of muscle injury. These are normally called muscle tears, which can involve the damaging of small blood vessels within the muscle. This can lead to localised bleeding and irritating pain.
Most muscle injuries are painful but relatively minor. If you are able to rest them for a few days, most muscle pains will resolve themselves. However, it is possible for some of these injuries to be serious. In these cases, you can suffer from long-term damages which can prevent you from enjoying life as you should. A severe muscle injury can result in a great deal of pain and suffering.
If the muscle injury that you’ve suffered also prevent you from working, attending social events or travelling, then this could lead to psychological trauma too. As such, the more severe of these injuries can have a real, lasting impact on your life.
Over the years, the experienced team at Tylers Solicitors has helped all kinds of people to get the compensation they are entitled to. However you sustained your muscle injury, you could be eligible for compensation so long as you weren’t responsible. We will work with you to understand whether or not you have a viable claim against the person, employer or business responsible. We will work with you throughout the entire procedure, to help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
If you’ve suffered any kind of muscle injury that wasn’t your fault, then you could be eligible for compensation. The amount of money that you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and any long-term symptoms you might be left with. If the injury prevents you from working, driving or enjoying social activities, then you’ll be able to claim for additional pain and suffering.
Here at Tylers Solicitors, our expert team can deliver a range of no-win, no-fee legal services. We can work with you to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. The money you receive can be essential when it comes to paying bills while you are out of work. Additionally, you’ll be able to make practical changes to your home or other aspects of your life. This can be a great help if you are left with any kind of reduced mobility or chronic pains.
The amount of compensation that you receive will also depend on which muscles are affected by the injury and how this impacts your life. You will also be able to make a claim for lost wages during the period of your injury.

As there are so many different kinds of muscle injuries, and they can occur in muscles across the body, there isn’t really any one feeling to look out for. Pain and discomfort are common, as is having difficulty moving the injured muscles.
There are muscle injuries which can cause numbness in the affected tissue. Numbness will most often be caused by damage to the nerves around the muscle tissue. This is normally a short-term symptom, but in serious injuries can be more long-term.
It is rare for a muscle injury to cause a fever. However, it is possible that other concerns related to these injuries can cause fevers. These can include blood clots and infected wounds which can lead to fevers and fever-like symptoms.
When muscles become injured, they can become weakened. They can start to shake and twitch when you attempt to use them. This is normally short-term while the muscle recovers. Following serious injuries, it is possible for twitching/shaking to become a long-term condition.
There are several different kinds of muscle injuries which can be sustained at home, at work or elsewhere. Some are more serious than others, and some can last for days, weeks or even years if not rested and treated correctly.
A muscle strain occurs when the muscle’s tissue is stretched or torn. This may also affect the connective tendon. Muscle tears can be minor or serious and can sometimes require surgery to repair. These can occur in muscle tissue across the body.
A contusion is caused by a heavy impact on the muscle tissue. This can cause the muscle tissue to bruise as blood pools around the impact site. Muscle contusions will rarely require surgery but can be extremely painful and cause long-lasting damage.
A muscle cramp occurs whenever a muscle in your body contracts and will not relax. These can occur in any muscle controlled by voluntary actions. They can be uncomfortable and painful. They will normally last between 15 seconds and a few minutes.
A muscle rupture is the separation of tissue in your body. This is a rare injury which can occur following heavy lifting. As such, these injuries only occur in sporting competitions and in certain workplaces. They can cause pain, swelling and distortion.
Muscle injuries can occur in muscle tissue across the body. Some of the most common areas are those muscles involved with heavy lifting or sporting, such as:
- Back Muscles.
- Shoulder Muscles and Neck Muscles.
- Groin Muscles.
- Ankles and Knees.
- Elbows and Forearms.
In most cases, muscle injuries are caused by lifting weights which are too heavy on your muscles. These wounds can also be caused by heavy impacts on your muscle tissue. Sports injuries and accidents at work are the most common causes.
Anyone involved in professional sports, such as weightlifting, is vulnerable to muscle injuries. It is also possible for employees like construction workers to suffer from severe muscle injuries. If you suffer any kind of accident at work, get in touch today.
