Often times, an injury may be difficult to identify. When clients come to us with known injuries, we work with treating physicians to assist in identifying other undiagnosed arm and leg injuries. For example TFCC (tears in wrist cartilage) is often not immediately recognized and can be difficult to diagnose. Through our experience representing injured clients, we have learned the causes, signs and factors which may lead to specific injury identification. Other complex injuries we handle include:
- Wrist and hand injuries: Wrists and hands are often injured as a result of the body’s natural instincts. When people see an impending car accident or slip and fall accident, they often brace their hands on the steering wheel or stop their fall with their hands. Common hand and wrist injuries include carpel tunnel syndrome, wrist fractures, TFCC (cartilage tears), hand fractures or finger fractures
- Arm and shoulder injuries: As with wrist and hand injuries, arm and shoulder injuries often result from an individual attempting to brace against a fall or impending accident. With the significant force of the accident, the individual may sustain arm fractures or a torn rotator cuff.
- Leg and knee injuries: Passengers involved in a car crash often smash their knees into the dashboard, even while wearing a seatbelt. Many of these individuals sustain a meniscus tear (tearing of cartilage in the knee) which can require extensive therapy, surgery and potential knee replacement.
- Feet and toe injuries: toe fractures, severed toes, foot fractures, and other injuries to the toes or feet are common in motorcycle accidents. There is often insufficient protection in these accidents to avoid such injuries.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Houde, we believe there is no such thing as a simple fracture. Injuries to the arms, legs, wrists or hands can severely limit your ability to perform activities that you, your employer and your family rely on you for. The injured extremity will likely be immobilized throughout the healing process, followed by periods of therapy. We are able to recover compensation for lost wages, additional services within the household, medical expenses and other needs. View some of our successful verdicts and settlements.
