What exactly is an Orthopedic Injury?
In the field of personal injury law, an orthopedic injury is one that impacts the locomotor or musculoskeletal system. This includes the bones, cartilage, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Therefore, injuries to any of these components can affect the movement of the arms, fingers, hands, and legs.
Furthermore, orthopedic injuries are categorized in the following 3 levels:
- ACUTE – injuries that result from sudden impact and causes painful events such broken backs and wrist sprains
- CHRONIC OVERUSE – continuous repetitive, sharp movements that impact the joints and could result in mobility issues which force the individual to wear special bracing or eventually confine them to a wheelchair
- CHRONIC RECURRING – injuries that are associated with a previous injury or irritation and continue happening such as frequent ankle sprains that cause tissue breakdown
