Orthopaedic Injury

A common misconception about bone fractures is that once a broken bone heals, the patient’s function will return to normal. In fact, bones do not always heal correctly, or to their full pre-injury quality. If you have suffered a serious fracture in an accident or collision, you may continue to experience symptoms long after the bone has healed and the symptoms may become worse over time if osteoarthritis develops at the site of the fracture.

Orthopaedic injuries include bone fractures, and injuries to the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and muscles that support the bones. In a serious orthopaedic injury, the bone can become displaced, damaging nerves and surrounding tissues. Sometimes surgery, surgical implants or hardware are necessary to repair the damage.

A serious orthopaedic injury can have a devastating impact on a person’s ability to engage in his or her chosen career, among many other aspects of  life. Due to the developing nature of orthopaedic injuries, it is important to consider how an injury may play out years from the date of an accident, and how issues may progress.

The lawyers of McLeish Orlando understand that the symptoms of a fracture can cause pain and disability for years and, sometimes, for life. Our goal is to obtain compensation for the full extent of our clients’ injuries. We retain trusted medical experts who can provide an accurate prognosis for our clients, and who can testify regarding the degree of future disability our clients may experience and the effects this will have on our clients’ lives. We thoroughly prepare each case for trial, however, by doing so we are most often able to achieve a reasonable settlement outside of court.
