Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopaedic Injury Lawyers in Nova Scotia

Orthopaedic injuries, otherwise known as musculoskeletal injuries, are those that affect bones, muscles and connective tissues such as soft tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Injuries often include

  • Bone fractures
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Sprains
  • Tears to rotator cuff
  • Tears to meniscus

These types of injuries can result in permanent disability, chronic pain, nerve damage and other painful, life-changing challenges to a victim’s quality of life.

Although some minor orthopaedic injuries adequately heal with rest and minor interventions, many others may require extensive surgeries, prolonged rehabilitation and, often, lead to life-long impairment and loss of mobility. This can result in costly medical bills, time away from work and even impact the victim’s ability to earn an income.

Was Negligence Involved?

As in any accident injury, orthopaedic injuries are often caused by the negligence of another. If negligence is involved, that party may be held accountable for a victim’s injuries and the costs associated with it.

How Do These Injuries Happen?

Orthopaedic injuries can range from fractures and trauma to repetitive stress injuries.. In some cases, sufferers of orthopedic injuries can require lifelong treatment and therapy.

We see orthopaedic injuries that result from accidents every day. Some of these are

  • Slip and fall accidents – These accidents are one of the most common causes of orthopaedic injuries, primarily in older adults. Although a serious fall can often be just a simple accident, many are due to the negligence of another party.
  • Motor vehicle accidents – Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of orthopaedic injuries throughout Canada.
  • Impact from sports – Forced impact from sporting activity is a leading cause of orthopaedic injuries in young adults.
  • Overuse and repetitive movement – These injuries can result from repetitive motions that will inevitably cause pain, swelling, inflammation, strain and often tissue damage
