While it is always the goal that with proper care and rehabilitative treatment, a bone fracture will heal with no ongoing pain or functional restrictions, this is unfortunately not always the case.
We have a number of clients who have suffered serious orthopedic injuries that have long-lasting effects, including ongoing pain, reduced range of motion, muscle weakness, and increased risk of arthritis.
We have clients of all ages who have suffered serious orthopedic injuries that have affected their ability to continue in their chosen vocation, participate in sports and recreational activities, complete their usual housekeeping and home maintenance tasks and even take care of their children as they did prior to their injury.
Our role in representing these clients is to assist in ensuring that they reach either 100% recovery or what is referred to as “maximum medical improvement” and once they do, making sure that we have appropriate medical opinions on prognosis, any permanent restrictions or disability resulting from the injury, and what impact those restrictions will have on the individual going forward.
