What are Orthopedic Injuries?
Basically, any musculoskeletal injury is classified as an orthopedic injury. These injuries come in a variety of forms but are commonly attributed to broken bones or fractures, sprains, and strains. Here are some examples of each:
Bones can be broken or fractured completely or partially and can occur in several ways such as across the bone, lengthwise, or mid-bone. Furthermore, a fractured ankle, hip, knee, or some other type of weight-bearing joint is considered much more serious. Additionally, the injured person could be in for a life filled with challenges and other complications such as chronic pain and certain diseases.
Sprains and strains adversely affect the ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Sprains involve damage to ligaments while strains involve damage to the muscles. These types of orthopedic injuries are classified as being acute or chronic, acute meaning a rapid but short-lived onset and chronic meaning long-lasting, possibly recurring.
Displaced bones that damage the nerves and the surrounding support tissues are more serious orthopedic injuries that may require surgical procedures and implants to correct them. In any case, if you are unable to work and lose your earning potential, the EBBC Personal Injury Lawyer team can protect you from financial devastation.
What are the Causes of these Injuries?
While the majority of the personal injury claims that we file for clients who’ve sustained orthopedic injuries are associated with motor vehicle collisions, claims can also be filed because of the following:
Cyclist or Pedestrian Accidents
Motorcycle or Trucking Accidents
Slip and Fall Accidents
Depending on the type of injury and the severity of it, the recovery/rehabilitation times can differ significantly. The length of time recuperating can be affected by the extent of the damage (permanent or temporary) as well and whether or not a surgical procedure is required. The more serious injuries to the weight-bearing joints (see above) may affect the person’s mobility and their strength. It can also lead to disease and long-term chronic pain.
