Orthopedic Injury Attorneys in Thousand Oaks, Watsonville, Gilroy, and Morgan Hill
Orthopedic injuries are those that impact the human skeletal system and its associated muscles, joints, and ligaments. These types of injuries can be the result of any accident from motor vehicle accidents to slip and fall accidents. Following an accident, there may even be multiple orthopedic injuries a victim may have sustained.
- Soft tissue damage
- Neck or shoulder injuries
- Strains, sprains, and tears
- Nerve injuries
- Spinal injuries
Despite our increasing safety measures in daily life, accidents are the leading cause of orthopedic injuries today. Many orthopedic injuries can alter the way a victim lives everyday life and can lead to chronic pain, loss of work, and extensive medical and rehabilitative costs. In times like these, you may need the advice of an injury attorney.

We Never Take a One Size Fits All Approach
Orthopedic injuries can vary in severity but even minor injuries can have long-lasting and painful effects on the everyday lives of victims. These injuries can differ in the length of time required for recovery and the interventions required for healing. Even the simple breaking of a bone can have various implications depending on the severity of the break
- Simple fractures are when the bone breaks but does not pierce the skin
- Compound fractures are when the bone breaks and does pierce the skin
- Hairline fractures are when a bone breaks but doesn’t do so entirely
- Comminuted fractures are when a bone breaks in several areas
- Greenstick fractures are common in children when a bone bends but doesn’t break
Even when it comes to fractures, medical care and rehabilitation can be very different from one person to another. Consequently, a fracture or any other orthopedic injury can never be considered with a one size fits all approach. Our experienced personal injury lawyers take a personalized approach to each claim.
The Extensive Costs of an Injury
Treatments for orthopedic injuries can be extensive and costly. Medical costs from surgery, rehabilitation, needed medical equipment and therapies, and home care can add up quickly. Even when you have insurance or savings, these costs may not be adequate to get the kind of care you need.
