Joint Injuries and Claims for Insurance Compensation/Settlement

Posted on

There are three common joint injuries caused in car accidents and other blunt force trauma. First, a knee injury can represent a severe and permanent joint injury. Treatment for knee injuries can range from simple diagnosis and physicial therapy all the way to surgery and partial or total knee replacement. The knee injury is one of the most common injuries sustained in a slip and fall. Slipping on ice or tripping on uneven surfaces can lead to a long road of treatment and recovery. It is important to obtain competent medical care immediately and discuss your case with a knee injury lawyer.
A second common joint injury involves the shoulder. Labral tears or rotater cuff tears can be caused when the shoulder impacts other hard objects such as a car door or concrete floor. Shoulder injuries are also common in workers’ compensation claims involving repetative-type labor. Treatment for a shoulder injury can range from physical therapy to arthorgram and athroscopy. When you are laboring with a shoulder injury, pain can become debilitating and may likely interfere with everyday activities and work.
A third joint injury common resulting from trauma involves the hip. Labrum tears and dislocations can be caused in car accidents and motorcycle crashes. The hip is a sophisticated joint that when injured, can cause significant pain and discomfort. Obtaining treatment from a hip orthopedic specialist is important to diagnose the injury and undertake the correct course of medical care.
