Orthopaedic Injury (Broken Bones and Fractures)
An orthopaedic injury is more than broken bones.
Even simple accidents like slip and falls can result in an orthopaedic injury: broken legs and arms, hairline or compound fractures, disc herniation, and joint and ligament damage. Orthopaedic injuries can affect any part of the musculoskeletal system, leaving physical impairments that can greatly reduce your ability to move comfortably, which impacts your quality of life.
Our Ottawa personal injury lawyers understand the physical and financial fallout from an orthopaedic injury.
Unfortunately, with an orthopaedic injury, healing doesn’t always mean a complete recovery and there can be significant long-term physical complications. Debilitating conditions including the loss of mobility, arthritis, muscle atrophy, asymmetry, complex regional pain syndrome, nerve and tissue damage, and a greater risk of re-injury are common and often life-altering.
Let our Ottawa personal injury lawyers help you regain your independence.
We want to ensure you live independently and as pain-free as possible. That’s why we work with top Ontario surgeons to get our clients with an orthopaedic injury an accurate diagnosis of their medical condition and a long-term plan for their treatment and rehabilitation.
Insurance companies don’t always understand the extent of orthopaedic injuries. We deal with Ontario insurance providers to make certain they know the full impact of your personal injury. Often times, the true implications may not be known for years. We’ll help you get the proper compensation you need to live well now and for the future.
The ongoing medical cost of recovery is equally hindering. Surgery, rehabilitation, and other physically invasive procedures are expensive, especially combined with the loss of income from the sudden inability to work.
Orthopaedic injuries may include :
- fractured bones: arm, leg, foot, hip, pelvis, femur, rib, ankle, wrist, tibia, fibula,
- spinal cord injury,
- neck injury and back injury,
- ligaments and tendons injury
- chronic pain disorder
- rotator cuff injury
- herniated disks
- whiplash injury
- elbow and shoulder injury
- hand ,wrist , ankle and foot injury
- elbow and shoulder injury
- ankle and foot injury
Recovering from an orthopaedic injury depends on…
- age of accident victim
- age of orthopaedic injury
- sex of the accident victim
- severity of the orthopaedic injury
- how quickly medical treatment were obtained after accident
- severity of accident: is it a chronic injury ?
