Orthopedic injuries involve bones, tendons, joints, muscles and nerves. Most often these injuries include bone fractures and injuries of the tendon, ligaments, cartilage and muscles that support the bones. In more serious cases, a bone can sometimes become displaced, causing damage to the nerves and surrounding tissue.
Orthopedic injuries can be the result of a variety of accidents including car accidents, slip and falls, sports activities or physical assaults. These injuries usually occur in the shoulders, legs, back, neck or feet. Many common injuries such as sprains, muscle strains, joint damage, fractures and nerve pressure can heal relatively quickly. However, some injuries can lead to more permanent problems, such as chronic pain and issues with mobility.
If you have sustained orthopedic and/or other injuries as a result of a car accident through no fault of your own, you are entitled to compensation. Even if ICBC has determined that you are at fault for the collision, it is important that you get independent advice from a lawyer. Regardless of fault you are entitled to benefits to assist with your recovery.
Slip and Falls
Slip and falls can happen anytime and anywhere and can cause a wide array of orthopedic injuries. When you are injured in a slip or fall there will be a question about who is at fault. If you have suffered a substantial injury from a slip or fall it is important to obtain legal advice to determine whether you are entitled to compensation.
The physical nature of sports activities can lead to injury. While many injuries are simply a matter of bad luck, in some cases the injuries will be the result of someone else’s action or inaction. If you have sustained injuries as a result of participating in a sport or recreational activity, and you think someone else may be at fault, it is important to consult a lawyer to determine whether you have a legal claim.
Physical assault often comes with legal implications beyond your injuries, but your recovery and the associated costs should not be overlooked. If you have been the victim of an assault of any sort, it is important to obtain legal advice to determine your rights and entitlements
Recovering from a serious orthopedic injury takes time and can result in significant costs and expenses. You will likely require time away from work to heal as well as help with the costs of treatment. Dealing with chronic pain or other long-term issues as of a result of an orthopedic injury can have a significant impact on the way you live, and your ability to participate in the activities you previously enjoyed fully. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s fault you are entitled to compensation.
