An orthopaedic injury (or orthopaedic trauma) is damage caused to the body’s musculoskeletal system, often as a result of an accident where a part of the body is subject to some form of impact or other physical insult.
When we talk about an orthopaedic injury we usually assume that someone has suffered a broken bone or fracture. However the bones of the human skeleton are held together by a series of tendons and ligaments and moved by the muscles around the body.
And they can all become damaged in an orthopaedic injury…
If you’ve been involved in an accident where you have suffered an orthopaedic injury or trauma that was not your fault, then contact Personal Injury Solicitors Manchester and speak to our qualified legal experts and solicitors for the very best advice on making a compensation claim for your personal injury.
Orthopaedic injuries can include:
- Broken (fractured) bones;
- Torn tendons
- Torn ligaments
- Damaged or torn cartilage
- Knee injuries (damaged menisci)
- Spinal injuries
- Joint dislocation
- Fractured skull
Many orthopaedic injuries require specialist treatment and will inevitably mean time off work, possible surgery and a period of rehabilitation treatment such as physiotherapy.
