At Horowitz Injury Law, we have 35 years of experience in advancing orthopaedic injury claims.
There are many types of orthopaedic injuries that stem from accidents, including but not limited to:
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Bone injuries
- Joint injuries
- Sprains, strains and other soft tissue injuries
- Tendons and Ligament injuries
- Chronic pain syndrome
- And more
In some cases, these injuries may require surgical intervention and/or repair as a result of significant damage to bones, ligaments and tendons. Some orthopaedic injuries can leave patients with chronic pain, serious infections and long term damage and impairment. Our legal team fully comprehends the long-term implications that arise from serious orthopaedic injuries and how immobilizing they can be. We work hard to ensure that your insurance company and the at-fault party’s lawyer understand the full extent of your injuries and the kind of negative impact it has had, and will continue to have, on your enjoyment of life and usual daily activities. We will work vigorously to advance your claim and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Cases involving joint injuries are particularly complex, as intra-articular fractures often lead to complications like osteoarthritis, where there is a breakdown of the joint surface in joints like those found in the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. Osteoarthritis is a progressive condition, which will cause increased pain and impairment, as the joint surface deteriorates over time.
It is imperative that each joint injury be thoroughly investigated with appropriate diagnostic imaging, including x-rays, CT Scans and MRI. In addition, there must be a careful clinical examination, by a qualified Orthopaedic Surgeon, to ensure there is a proper diagnosis and prognosis and appropriate treatment recommendations are made. At Horowitz Injury Law, we have access to many of the leading joint experts in Ontario and will ensure that you or your family member receives the best care and treatment and thorough expert evidence is obtained to support your claims for damages.
Some of the damages you may be eligible for include:
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future loss of income
- Attendant care, Housekeeping and Home Maintenance expenses
- Retraining costs
- Caregiving costs
- And more
