The musculoskeletal system is an intricate system of nerves, bones, and soft tissues interconnected with one another; oftentimes an orthopedic injury can affect several parts of this system at once. Examples of common orthopedic injuries include:
- Knee Ligament Injuries including the ACL, LCL & MCL, and meniscus tears
- Spinal Injuries such as herniated or bulging discs, or stenosis
- Hip replacements
- Fractures of the joints or bones
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Dislocations of the joints
- Sprains or strains
Orthopedic injuries can result from a traumatic blow, impact, fall, sudden twisting motion, or repeated use of specific joints. Incidents that may result in orthopedic injury include:
There are several situations in which an orthopedic injury has arisen from the negligence of others; individuals suffering these injuries may be entitled to compensation for the harm caused. Common causes of orthopedic injury that can involve negligence include slip and fall incidents as well as motor vehicle collisions.
A slip and fall can occur from a variety of causes such as poorly maintained walking areas, holes in landscaping, uneven, and wet surfaces. When a slip and fall results in an orthopedic injury on the premises of an individual or company that has been negligent in maintaining its property for the safety of its visitors, they may be found liable for your injuries.
Collisions caused by vehicles towards other vehicles, pedestrians, joggers, bicyclists, and motorcyclists are common causes of a number of traumatic orthopedic injuries. During a motor vehicle collision, there are a number of mechanisms and impacts that can cause an orthopedic injury such as direct impacts to the vehicle causing harm to its occupants, airbag deployment, and even the seatbelt mechanism. When you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision the negligent driver should be held liable for these injuries.
Orthopedic injuries are life-altering often restricting an individual's freedom of movement and significantly diminishing their quality of life and ability to complete even the simplest of tasks. Orthopedic injuries oftentimes take weeks if not months to heal and require extensive treatment and medical costs including surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. In some extensive injuries, an individual may never fully recover and may have to undergo repeated procedures in the future.
