What are Orthopedic Injuries?
Orthopedic injury describes a lot of severe medical problems which interfere with basic functions like walking, sitting, and standing. These injuries affect bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues that connect bone and muscle, and nerves. Orthopedic injuries can happen when the body sustains a sudden impact, and they can happen when the body feels mild to severe stress and repeated types of stress.
Orthopedic injuries frequently require surgical intervention including arthroscopies, spinal fusions, joint replacements, and nerve decompressions. If you or a loved one needs the care of an orthopedic specialist or surgeon for injuries caused by the negligence of others, don’t delay, call for a legal consultation with Jacoby & Meyers to find out if we can represent you in your legal claim against the wrongdoer or the defendant.
Orthopedic injuries include damage to your bones and muscles and the nerves and tissues that connect them. The injury can be immediate from a severe incident or can be exacerbated over time with repeated incidents.

What Types of Accidents Can Lead to an Orthopedic Injury?
Various accidents can result in an orthopedic injury. This includes cases of slip and trip and falls. The key factor being falling which can occur in premises liability cases when a dangerous condition is present, directly causing the injury to the victim and of which the landlord, tenant or property owner should have reasonably known was present.
