Common Orthopedic Injuries After an Accident

Car accidents and slip-and-fall accidents can be traumatic experiences, often resulting in a wide range of injuries. Orthopedic injuries, which affect the musculoskeletal system, are among the most prevalent.

Here are some of the most common injuries you may experience:

  • Fractures:Fractured bones are a frequent outcome of car accidents. Impact forces can cause broken bones in various parts of the body, such as the arms, legs, ribs and pelvis. Complex fractures may require surgical intervention and extended rehabilitation.
  • Whiplash:Whiplash is a neck injury that occurs when the head is rapidly jerked forward and backward, often seen in rear-end car accidents. It can result in soft tissue damage, neck pain and restricted mobility.
  • Spinal injuries:Car accidents can cause spinal injuries, including herniated discs, compression fractures and severe injuries like spinal cord damage. These injuries may lead to chronic pain, numbness or paralysis.
  • Shoulder injuries:Shoulder injuries, such as rotator cuff tears or dislocated shoulders, can happen when occupants brace for impact during a car accident.
  • Hip and pelvic injuries:The impact of a car crash can cause hip fractures, pelvic fractures and soft tissue injuries.
  • Knee injuries:The knees are highly susceptible to injury during a car accident. Common knee injuries include anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, meniscus tears and fractures.
  • Sprains and strains:Ligament and muscle injuries are common in slip-and-fall accidents. These injuries can lead to pain, swelling and restricted movement.
  • Back injuries:Accidents can cause other types of back injuries, including herniated discs or compression fractures. These injuries can result in chronic pain and limited mobility.
  • Dislocations:Falls can lead to dislocated joints, most often in the shoulder or elbow. These injuries require immediate medical attention to reduce and stabilize the joint.

If you’ve experienced orthopedic injury as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness, help is available. Reach out to the skilled Sarasota, FL accident attorneys at Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh today.
