Legal Help for Serious Joint Injuries
A bone fracture can be serious, but most of them heal eventually. Joint injuries, on the other hand, can cause pain and restrict movement for the rest of your life.
The lawyers of McLeish Orlando LLP represent people in the greater Toronto area and throughout southern Ontario who have sustained serious joint injuries in motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury accidents caused by negligence. We help clients seek the full amount of accident benefits and financial compensation they are entitled to receive.
Joint Injuries Can Be Life-Altering
Because of our many years of experience representing injured and disabled people, we understand that a joint injury can change your life forever. Joint injuries can cause chronic pain, swelling, inflammation and fatigue. Some can even leave you permanently disabled.
For example, if a fracture extends into a weight-bearing joint, such as a knee or ankle, arthritis may develop. The likely consequences of the arthritis must be considered when quantifying a person's economic losses.
Joint injuries can leave you permanently unable to work or perform routine chores around the home. Injuries to the hips, legs, ankles and feet can affect your ability to stand, walk and climb stairs. A shoulder injury can make it impossible to lift objects above shoulder level. Injuries to the wrists and hands can prevent you from doing computer keyboarding or other skilled work with your hands.
Compensation for Damages
The long-term impact of these injuries can be financially devastating. We seek compensation for the full extent of your damages, including loss of income-earning capacity, cost of future care, loss of the ability to perform housekeeping and home maintenance, and other damages.
Whether you suffered a Lisfranc fracture to your feet, a rotator cuff injury to the shoulder or a stress fracture to the hip, it is important to discuss your legal options with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
