Common Types of Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries involve damage to the musculoskeletal system, which can vary widely in severity. This system includes the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and bones. When they are caused by falls, trauma, or injury, orthopedic injuries may be severe enough to require surgery. Bone fractures require immediate medical attention.

Injury to the musculoskeletal system can occur in many different ways. Common orthopedic injuries include the following:

  • Fractures: A bone can break as a result of a sudden impact, as in a car accident or a fall. Fractured bones can cause severe pain, numbness, and redness of the skin. If the bone is broken, you may not be able to move the affected limb.
  • Dislocations: This injury occurs when a joint is forced out of position. The bone may be visibly displaced, and the area may swell. Dislocations are common in the joints of the jaw, elbows, hips, and ankles.
  • Sprains: Sprains involve stretching or tearing of ligaments. They can cause bruising, swelling, and pain, and you may hear a pop when the injury occurs.
  • Strains: This type of injury occurs when the muscles or tendons are stretched or torn. Strains can cause pain, redness, muscle spasms, and difficulty moving.
  • Rotator cuff injuries: A rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint that keep the head of the upper arm bone firmly within the shoulder socket. Injury or overuse can cause the rotator cuff to break down suddenly or over time.
  • Knee injuries: A sudden twist can injure muscles and tendons in the knee. When this happens, the joint does not function properly. Knee injuries can cause pain, swelling, and problems with mobility.

Who Is Liable for Orthopedic Injuries?

If your orthopedic injuries occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party may be legally responsible. For example, if your leg was fractured in an automobile accident caused by a drunk driver, that driver may be held accountable in a claim for compensation. If your knee was injured in a trip and fall accident caused by a hazard on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries. Our Atlanta personal injury attorneys can investigate your accident to determine fault and liability and construct a strong case based on the facts.

For the best chance of recovering maximum compensation, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side.
