Help With Fracture And Joint Injury Claims

Broken bones or injuries to tendons or ligaments can wreak havoc on a person's life. While these injuries may eventually heal to some degree, these injuries can place serious limitations on a person's ability to make a living. Any type of joint or fracture can cause lifelong problems, including:

  • Intra-articular fracture, or a fracture involving a joint. These injuries can lead to arthritis.
  • Dislocated joints, such as shoulders, knees and elbows. Although these injuries may not fracture, they can be extremely painful and can lead to significant weakness in a joint.
  • Depending on the circumstances, even so-called soft tissue injuries can be devastating to a person's overall health and ability to work.

If you or a loved one has sustained a fracture or joint injury at work or in some other setting, it is vital to have experienced legal counsel at your side.
