Orthopedic injuries are caused by any type of accident to include traffic accidents relating to car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident or bus accident or premise liability mishaps to include slip and fall accident, construction accident or explosion and fire accident.

How Orthopedic Injuries Are Incurred?
Any accident can result in orthopedic injuries. Traffic accidents like car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident or bus accident can result in orthopedic injuries. You may also suffer orthopedic harm if you are involved in premise accidents like slip and fall accident, trip and fall accident, construction accident, swimming pool or near drowning accident, elevator accident or escalator accident among others. As you can see, it doesn’t matter what accident you are involved in, if the impact or force is strong, it is likely that you will suffer some form of orthopedic symptoms.
Who Can You Claim Against for Orthopedic Injuries?
In California, if you are injured because of the negligence of another person then you have a right to claim against the party at fault for all your damages, injuries and losses. However, the operative word is negligent or unintentional. If the injury you suffered is due to intentional or premeditated act of the party at fault, then it is no longer a matter of personal injury claim but of penal or criminal law suit for assault.
High Costs of Orthopedic Treatments
Muscle and bone injuries, even those that are not so serious, need lengthy medical evaluations and treatments. Aside from the actual medical care, you might need future medical care to include chiropractic treatments and physiotherapy. Hence, in case of accident, be sure to seek compensation not only for your actual injuries but to include reasonable amounts for future medical care.
Proof Required for Orthopedic Injury Claims
Before you can claim damages, you need to prove first your claim which includes:
- 1. Proof of accident;
- 2. Proof of negligence of the party at fault;
- 3. Damage to property and bodily injuries;
- 4. Medical costs; and
- 5. Other losses.
Only by proving the foregoing can you be able to successfully obtain reparation for your damages.
