Massachusetts Orthopedic Injuries Attorneys
An orthopedic injury is one that refers to an injury affecting a person’s muscles, joints, ligaments, or skeletal system. These injuries can be extremely painful and, if not diagnosed accurately and in a timely manner, can even cause permanent damage to the injured person. Unfortunately, errors in the diagnosis process happen all too often in the medical industry, causing patients to have a delayed diagnosis of an orthopedic injury or for it to be misdiagnosed entirely.
At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our legal team is all too aware of how many patients in Massachusetts suffer greater harm and injury from orthopedic injuries that are misdiagnosed or not diagnosed in a timely manner. The errors that lead to these diagnosing problems are often avoidable, however. When this is the case, the medical professional who is responsible for a diagnosing error should be held legally and financially accountable.
Common Orthopedic Injuries
Orthopedic injuries vary in severity and type, depending on many factors, such as the person’s own health, the body part that is injured, and how the injury occurred. Some of the more common orthopedic injuries include:
- ACL tears
- Chronic joint pain
- MCL tears
- Stress fracture
- Trigger finger
- Plantar fasciitis
In order for a person with these or other orthopedic injuries to receive the treatment they need to properly recover, a timely and accurate diagnosis is critical. Unfortunately, the recklessness of medical professionals all too often results in patients suffering greater harm due to a delayed or wrong diagnosis.
