What Are Orthopedic Injuries?
An injury impacting the musculoskeletal system is considered an orthopedic injury. There are too many examples to list on this page, but those common to personal injury claims include:
- Broken bones
- Fractures and stress fractures
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Leg injuries like a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a torn meniscus
- Injuries impacting the wrists, elbows, knees and ankles
- Shoulder injuries like a torn rotator cuff
- Back and spinal injuries
In many cases, orthopedic injuries must be corrected with surgery in addition to lesser medical interventions. Patients might also require physical therapy to regain strength and mobility.
Damages That May Be Available In Your Personal Injury Claim
Musculoskeletal injuries are commonly associated with auto accidents, falls from height, slip-and-falls, construction site accidents and cumulative workplace injuries, just to name a few. Depending on the details of your personal injury case, our attorneys can help you seek compensation for damages that include:
- Medical bills (present and future)
- Lost wages from time spent unable to work
- Reduced earning capacity if your injuries won’t allow you to return to work full time or in the same industry
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Reduced enjoyment of life
If your injuries are related to a workplace accident, our lawyers will help you file a workers’ compensation claim and represent you at any necessary levels of appeal if your claim is denied. They will also discuss any other legal options you may have, such as pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against a negligent third party.
