Help with Orthopaedic Injuries from Compassionate Orthopedic Malpractice Attorneys
From a general standpoint, orthopedic injuries involve the musculoskeletal system or the muscles and bones. However, they typically affect the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, and tendons. Although human error is inevitable, an individual that has suffered an orthopedic injury is not usually responsible for the damage. Depending on the nature and extent of these injuries, the injury victim often suffers debilitating pain and financial loss.
If you’ve recently suffered an orthopedic injury in an accident caused by someone else, the personal injury lawyers at the SF Injury Law Group may be able to help. Whether it’s pursuing a personal injury claim or taking legal action against the at-fault party, we can explain your options and determine what damages you’re entitled to. As your legal representative, our goal is to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve.
The 3 Types of Orthopedic Injuries
Orthopedic injuries are among some of the most painful and physically debilitating injuries that you can suffer. These injuries affect a person’s mobility either by inhibiting a person’s movements or making any type of movement extremely painful. While these injuries encompass a broad spectrum of specific injuries ranging from minor sprains or strains to quadriplegia, orthopedic injuries are categorized as follows:
- Acute injuries – result from sudden and traumatic events (e.g. breaking your back, severe ankle sprain, etc.)
- Chronic overuse injuries – caused by low-force, repeated impact to bones, joints, or muscles; typically affects individuals whose jobs require repetitive movement
- Chronic recurring injuries – occurs when an acute injury or chronic condition has weakened the tissue and makes it more susceptible to damage
Orthopedic injuries may involve significant pain and medical expenses, especially if an injury is so severe that surgery is required. Patients often face extremely long recovery periods with lots of physical therapy. Needless to say, the best way to ensure that you recover your losses is to seek the legal representation of an experienced personal injury lawyer from the SF Injury Law Group.
