Orthopedic Injury Compensation
If you suffered an orthopedic injury, you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney will build a case that shows compensation is owed for your suffering and injuries. An orthopedic injury defines any injury to the musculoskeletal system. These injuries are often associated with joints and bones and may result from accidents, trauma, or general wear.
The following are common orthopedic injuries:
- ACL Tear: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) helps maintain the placement of the bones of the knee. Sudden movement can cause an ACL to tear and makes it difficult to move at the knee.
- Dislocated Shoulder: This injury is also known as a labral tear. These injuries may occur during motor vehicle accidents or from falling.
- Carpal Tunnel: This is the result of a pinched nerve in the wrist. While many chronic illnesses cause carpal tunnel, it is also caused by trauma to the wrist and repetitive motion.
- Stress Fractures: These injuries happen when muscles get overused and fail to protect bones from impact. When muscles can no longer protect bones from impact, stress fractures occur.
- Compression Fractures: These injuries occur when the vertebra of the spine collapse from their original height. Compression fractures may be severe enough to cause paralysis or even death.
- Distal Radius Fractures: A fracture from an impact to the wrist.
- Rotator Cuff Tears: An injury caused by wear to the shoulder tendon over time. Rotator cuff tears occur from repetitive motions of the shoulder.
- Plantar Fasciitis: A strain on the ligaments that attach the toes to the heel. This injury causes discomfort in the heels and can be a result of standing too much.
