Severe orthopaedic injuries
Serious accidents often result in serious injuries. However it has been sustained, whether a road accident or an accident at work for example, the most common type of injury is an orthopaedic (muscular-skeletal) injury. These can include multiple bone breaks, serious fractures and dislocations.
What may appear to be a straightforward injury can have long term consequences. Serious orthopaedic injuries often impact on an individual’s mobility and can result in many months absence from work, or restrict ability to work in particular types of job – or indeed to work at all.
In some severe cases the injury victim may require intensive or constant care, or need specialist aids, equipment or adaptations to the home to assist them in their life ahead. Those suffering with constant pain may require specialist pain management treatment.
Thought must be given as to how an individual’s situation might change in the future, in light of the injury suffered. Specialist medical opinion is essential and expert orthopaedic evidence may in turn lead to evidence being required in other fields.
