What Type of Orthopedic Injury do You have?
An orthopedic injury and the damage it causes can be as minor as a joint sprain or muscle strain to something much more severe such as a degenerative bone or joint condition. Basically, any injury that adversely affects the musculoskeletal system is classified as an orthopedic injury. These injuries often result from an accident, sporting event, or trauma. Depending on the nature and extent of the damage, you could be entitled to compensation for your orthopedic injury.
Although this type of injury directly affects the musculoskeletal system, the orthopedic injuries that the Makarone Law Firm personal injury lawyers are familiar are usually broken down into one of the 4 following categories:
- Broken bones/fractures – These injuries usually result from the impact of motor vehicle collisions. You may experience broken bones or stress fractures based on the force of the impact. Fractures can affect one’s mobility, require surgery, and take weeks to heal.
- Joint damage and nerve pressure – Ankle and wrist pain can seriously limit a person’s mobility. In some cases, laser therapy, surgery, or ultrasound may be recommended to reduce the inflammation the damage has caused.
- Spinal damage – The impact of a motor vehicle collision that occurs at higher speeds can leave a person paralyzed or result in a lifetime of chronic pain and suffering.
- Sprains and strains – The hyperextension of a person’s muscles can result in limited mobility and severe pain. Although these types of orthopedic injuries tend to heal quicker than others, they can still limit your ability to perform your daily activities and tasks or work.
