Orthopaedic Injury Claims

Injuries caused to the musculoskeletal system – whether that’s pain in the muscles, bone fractures, an ache in the shoulders or neck, issues with the spine, a knee disability, or any other type of orthopaedic issue – are a type of serious injury that may require treatment or even orthopaedic surgery.

What Causes an Orthopaedic Injury?

Orthopaedic injury claims relate to a damaged musculoskeletal system: the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles that are so vital to our daily life. The human body is an incredible thing, but it is not free from risks and, unfortunately, there are a wide range of situations and scenarios that can lead to orthopaedic injuries. For example:

Causes and Consequences of Orthopaedic Injuries

As we’ve seen, there are a number of situations that can lead to personal injury and orthopaedic pain. Often, the cause will come from an external source – such as a sudden impact – but this is not always the case. A patient may require treatment and orthopaedic surgery in cases of over-exertion, as in sports injuries or repeated heavy lifting.

The immediate consequence of orthopaedic trauma will be the personal injury or injuries themselves. Sore shoulders, damaged muscles, bone fractures, any lasting disability, issues with the spine, or pain in the knee would all fall into this category.

Beyond this, ongoing consequences can last for years and are one of the primary reasons a patient may consider making orthopaedic claims. For instance, there is often significant and costly rehabilitative treatment to endure, alongside any needed orthopaedic surgery.

There’s also emotional pain and mental suffering to consider. Orthopaedic injuries can cause harm to your psychological wellbeing, and this is something that must be taken into account.

Making an Orthopaedic Injury Claim

Following a personal injury, and orthopaedic injury claims, the patient may face a long road to recovery and eventual compensation. With that said, OH Parsons’ specialist personal injuries solicitors can ensure this process is made as quick and painless as possible. Here’s how it works:

1. Information gathering

The first port of call is to collect all the primary and periphery details surrounding the initial incident. This would involve gathering witness testimonies and evidence relevant to the orthopaedic injury. In order to successfully process serious injury claims and win compensation, we need to establish exactly what happened and where the fault lies.

2. Medical assessment

Our solicitors will also review your medical history, as well as records of treatment and orthopaedic surgery. This is nothing to worry about; in the first instance, it helps determine if any medical negligence has occurred. This information will be handled with the strictest confidence and represents a crucial part of the orthopaedic injury claims procedure.

3. Amputation claims and compensation

With the background checks completed, our solicitors will make an honest and objective assessment of your case. We will let you know the strength and likelihood of success of any orthopaedic injury claims you choose to proceed with, and give you an indication as to the kind of compensation you can expect to win. As always, you can take confidence in our no-win no-fee guarantee, meaning you’ll only incur legal costs in the event that your case is successful.
