Skilled Orthopaedic Injury Lawyers Helping Clients Obtain Maximum Compensation for their Injuries 

Orthopaedic injuries, such as bone fractures, often heal well with no ongoing pain or restrictions in functionality. However, there are many situations where, despite proper care and rehabilitative treatment, the injury does not heal correctly, and the results are potentially long-term.

At Cuming & Gillespie LLP in Calgary, our skilled team of personal injury lawyers has extensive experience working with clients who have sustained serious injuries, including orthopaedic injuries. We know that such injuries can impact individuals physically, psychologically, and financially.  With over $175 million in damages recovered for our clients in the past 10 years, we know how to best approach your claim to ensure it is a success and help you move on with your recovery and the rest of your life.

What are Orthopaedic Injuries? 

Orthopaedic injuries are injuries to any of the musculoskeletal system. In other words, an orthopaedic injury is any injury to the following body parts:

  • Bones;
  • Joints;
  • Ligaments;
  • Cartilage;
  • Tendons; and/or
  • Muscles that support the bones.

If these injuries do not heal correctly, the damage can quite negatively impact your day-to-day life.  Long-term side-effects of such injuries include continuous pain, reduced range of motion, muscle weakness, and an increased risk of arthritis. You may require physiotherapy, or other on-going treatments to deal with these effects. Or you may have to alter your lifestyle to deal with the discomfort or pain. You may also see a change in your ability to work, which would, therefore, put additional financial strain on your life.

At Cuming & Gillespie LLP, our clients who have sustained serious orthopaedic injuries vary in age and are affected by their injuries in different ways. Some clients cannot continue to participate in sports or recreational activities or to complete their usual housekeeping tasks, and the injuries of some are so severe that they cannot care for their children as they did prior to sustaining their injury. Regardless of the scope of their injuries, we help all clients obtain the maximum compensation available to them.
