Joint Injuries

There are 360 joints in the human body connecting bones to each other. Some joints are more susceptible to injuries than others, especially if they are weight-bearing (like knees) or subjected to overuse or strenuous, repetitive activities. Aging typically decreases a person’s bone density, weakening bones and joints and making them more vulnerable to fractures or other injuries.

People can sustain joint injuries in a number of traumatic accidents, including car accidents, slips and falls, dog attacks, and other injurious situations arising from another party or entity’s negligence. Joint injuries can have long-lasting impacts on an accident victim’s life and their livelihood, especially if their injuries prevent them from carrying out tasks associated with their jobs.

If you sustained a joint injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our Ontario personal injury lawyers may be able to help you recover compensation for financial losses you have incurred because of your injuries. To learn more, call 1-800-JUSTICE.

Common Kinds of Joint Injuries

Acute joint injuries are often the result of traumatic accidents. Some joints that are most susceptible to accidental injuries include those in the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Common examples of joint injuries caused by traumatic accidents include:

  • Bursitis
  • Torn ACLs and other knee ligaments
  • Meniscus tears
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Torn rotator cuffs
  • And more

Recovering from Joint Injuries Can Be Expensive

Some joint injuries are so severe that the injured party could require complicated, invasive surgeries. The effects of these serious injuries can be far-reaching, impacting an accident victim’s abilities to perform routine tasks, carry out the duties of their jobs, and enjoy recreational activities. 

Recovering from joint injuries can be a lengthy, complicated, and frustrating process, especially if surgery is required. Some patients find that mindfulness practices to be beneficial throughout their recovery. However, for the best, most lasting results, injured accident survivors generally require substantial rest, regular physiotherapy sessions, and a careful plan of ongoing physical exercises. Depending on the location of their injury, accident survivors may even require the prolonged or permanent use of an assistive ambulatory device, such as a walker or a cane.

The process of recovery can be long, isolating, and demoralizing. It is not uncommon for injured accident survivors struggling with physical injuries, psychological distress, and financial instability to develop secondary disabilities in the form of debilitating mental health issues. These frequently include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • And possibly more

Coping with these resulting mental health issues can be costly, often requiring psychotherapy and other expenses.
