With brain and spinal cord injuries it is usually apparent that expensive and long-term treatment will be needed. With knee, hip, foot, shoulder, cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and similar injuries, the damage is often greater than it appears. And complications can make orthopedic injuries quite serious. This is because they are disabling and often poorly diagnosed.
In a recent case, our client suffered a nondisplaced bone fracture (it did not appear on the X-ray). It was extremely painful but the doctor ignored the pain our client complained of and failed to inquire further. He should have inserted a pin in the fracture to prevent the further injury that resulted from his negligence.
In another case, our client was instructed to stay off his feet while his ankle healed. Over several weeks he gained significant weight and developed obesity-related diabetes.
Fractures to the facet joints of the spine are even more dangerous, since nerves of the spinal cord are at risk. If you or a loved one has suffered an orthopedic injury (or complications) due to someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced attorney to advocate for your compensation. Attorney Chad Lawrence knows these cases inside and out.
