Advocating for Orthopedic Injury Victims in Bennington

Motor vehicle collisions, slip-and-fall accidents, and other traumatic incidents can cause serious orthopedic injuries. These injuries to the musculoskeletal system include bones, cartilage, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

How Can Negligence Lead to Orthopedic Injuries?

We all have a duty of care to others. For example, drivers in Nebraska have a duty to use reasonable care to prevent harm to others while operating their vehicles. Property owners have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition to prevent harm to visitors. When a party has a duty of care to someone and breaches that duty, causing the victim to suffer injuries and damages, that party can be found negligent and liable. For example:

  • A distracted driver who fails to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk hits the pedestrian, causing fractured bones and other severe orthopedic injuries
  • A restaurant owner fails to repair a pipe in the women’s bathroom that has been leaking for a week, causing a customer to slip and fall in a puddle of water, breaking her hip
  • An alcohol-impaired driver rear-ends a motorcycle, causing the rider to be ejected from the bike and suffer severe orthopedic injuries upon landing

What Challenges Can Orthopedic Injuries Cause in Bennington?

Severe orthopedic injuries can cause short or long-term debilitating pain and permanent impairment. They often require surgical treatment, lengthy recovery, physical therapy, and time away from work. Prompt medical attention is critical, as untreated injuries can worsen over time. Orthopedic injuries caused by someone else’s negligence can lead to lost income, diminished earning capacity, and long-term pain and suffering.

What Forms of Compensation May Be Available for Orthopedic Injuries?

If you have suffered orthopedic injuries through the negligence of another, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the responsible party. Common damages in orthopedic injury claims include past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other losses.
