Orthopedic Injuries

Personal Injury Lawyers in Leduc, Camrose & Cochrane Specializing In Orthopedic Injuries 

When a person sustains orthopedic injuries, they have most likely experienced broken bones (fractures), sprained or torn ligaments and tendons, or strained muscles.  The more serious fractures typically affect the body’s joints, especially weight-bearing joints.  In other words, it could be a broken ankle, foot, hip, knee, shoulder, or wrist.  However, it could also include spinal cord fractures as well.  In some cases, these injuries are so severe that a surgical implant procedure is required.

At the BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer firm, we specialize in several types of accident and injury claims and cases, including orthopedic injuries.  As your personal injury legal team, our goal is to ensure that you are cared for properly after you’ve been injured, not just physically but emotionally and financially as well.  However, we want to help you get the maximum compensation when settling your claim or lawsuit while at the same time advocating aggressively on your behalf to ensure that your rights are protected.


    Assessing Damages in Your Case

    A long-term disability or permanent physical impairment resulting from an orthopedic injury could have negative consequences where your employability in the future is concerned.  In this case, you would claim a loss of earning potential and future income as part of the damages in your case.  When assessing the damages for these issues, special considerations would be given for:

    Being Less Marketable For Future Employment
    Being Rendered Less Capable Of Earning A Living Regardless Of The Type Of Employment
    Having Less Value As An Employment Candidate In A Competitive Job Market
    Having Lost The Ability To Work In Any Career Field That Would Have Normally Provided An Opportunity For Employment

    A “loss of a capital asset” or LFIEC claim would require an BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer team approach in order to assess your circumstances functionally, medically, and vocationally.  Both the courts and the insurance companies will require proof of your circumstances before either agrees to compensate you for damages and your ability to earn an income in the future.  This could have a huge financial impact on the outcome of your personal injury claim.


    At the BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer firm, we take a team approach to serving the client.  As a result the personal injury lawyer that you retain will have a legal team comprised of legal assistants, paralegals, and support staff members to assist in your case.  This team approach goes beyond recovering lost income and medical expenses as well as compensating you for your pain and suffering.  We will also help you and your family meet all emotional and personal challenges of living with your injuries.

    Furthermore, we will help alleviate any anxiety and uncertainty regarding a thorough identification of the nature and extent of your injuries should any symptoms arise in the future.  For more information regarding how we assist clients when they have sustained orthopedic injuries or to schedule a FREE consultation appointment to evaluate your claim, contact the BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer firm at your earliest convenience.
