Orthopaedic Injuries & Fractures
Orthopedic injuries are injuries to the musculoskeletal system, including joints, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Orthopedic injuries like sprains and strains have a quick recovery time, but more severe orthopedic injuries can lead to permanent complications such as chronic pain, infection, and issues with mobility. Such complications may require surgery, long-term medical treatment, and rehabilitation, which affects the victim and their family for the remainder of their lifetimes. Most importantly, the extent of an orthopedic injury is not always apparent when the injury occurs, making it imperative that you contact a personal injury lawyer immediately following an incident.
