Injuries To Limbs And Joints
When one part of the body is injured, it affects the whole person. This is especially true with injuries to arms, hands, legs and feet. Your ability to function is compromised, with a cascading effect on your finances, your employment and enjoyment of life.
At Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., we welcome all injury claims, big or small. Serving South Jersey and Central New Jersey, our Burlington law firm helps clients recover comprehensive compensation for the impact of injuries to limbs and joints.
Bone Fractures · Soft Tissue Injuries · Surgical Cases
A broken arm (if it is a clean break) will usually heal in a matter of weeks, but you should be compensated for the hospital bills and lost time from work, plus your pain and suffering during rehab and recovery. Injuries to ligaments, tendons, muscles and joint sockets do not always heal as quickly or fully. Before you accept an insurance adjuster’s settlement offer, you need to know what the lasting impact may be. Will you recover full strength and range of motion? Do you have ongoing paint or stiffness in the joint? Can you continue in the same line of work?
Our attorneys are familiar with the medical and legal aspects of various injuries, including:
- Fractured arm or broken leg
- Shoulder injury (labrum, rotator cuff, dislocated/separated)
- Knee injury (kneecap, ACL or MCL, cartilage)
- Sprained or broken ankle
- Broken foot, broken toe, plantar fasciitis
- Elbow and wrist injuries
- Broken hand or broken fingers
- Severed or partially amputated appendage
- Nerve damage (i.e., compartment injury)
We work closely with clients, doctors and other professionals to document and portray all the ways in which injuries to joints adversely affect our client. Whether you recover completely or never quite heal, you are entitled to compensation for your economic loss and what you have personally endured.
