Helping you get the money you need after an orthopedic injury in Virginia
Orthopedic medicine treats a broad range of injuries related to the musculoskeletal system of the body, which includes the bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, joints, nerves, muscles, and vertebrae.
Orthopedic injuries may be caused by stress or a high-impact collision, such as a sports injury or an auto crash. They are complex injuries that often require extensive treatment and physical therapy.
Even with the best medical care, orthopedic injuries may cause intense pain and mobility problems that prevent you from returning to your regular activities. The impact on your health, employment, and quality of life can be extreme.
If somebody’s careless actions caused your orthopedic injuries in Virginia, we at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys will file a claim to get the money you need to cope with your injuries and rebuild your life.

Common orthopedic injuries
When people think of orthopedic medicine, it usually brings to mind plaster casts and setting broken bones. But orthopedic doctors and surgeons do so much more than that. Treatments for orthopedic injuries involve the most advanced medical technology.
Orthopedists are at the leading edge of medicine. Orthopedic care relies on the latest medical imaging technology, including MRIs and CT scans, and involves treatments such as arthroscopy, joint replacement, excision and decompression, and spinal fusion.
Injuries treated by orthopedic doctors and surgeons include:
- Bone fractures
- Bone deterioration
- Joint fractures
- ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears
- Wrist, knee, back, elbow, and neck injuries
- Slipped and herniated discs
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Shoulder dislocation
- Rotator cuff tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Meniscus tears
- Tennis elbow
- Hip fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue damage
What causes orthopedic injuries?
Sometimes people assume they can ignore an orthopedic injury, and it will just get better on its own. But this is rarely the case. Without a proper diagnosis from an experienced orthopedist using advanced imaging equipment, injuries are likely to get worse.
Orthopedic injuries can involve bones, tendons, ligaments, or any part of the musculoskeletal system. These injuries may result from blunt force trauma, overuse, or continuous movement. Frequent causes of orthopedic injuries include:
- Car crashes
- Falling from height
- Workplace accidents
- Sports injuries
- Slip and falls
- Medical errors
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle, scooter, and skateboard accidents
- Physical assault and gunshot wounds
- Product malfunction
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck and delivery vehicle crashes
- Train and bus accidents
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
How your personal injury lawyer can help
Orthopedic injuries can require years of comprehensive treatment including surgery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy. Victims may be unable to work for a considerable time, and they may never be able to resume their regular activities.
Insurance companies are often dismissive of orthopedic injuries, and reluctant to fully compensate victims. In fact, it’s common for insurance agents to refer to orthopedic injuries as a “minor” problem.
Your Virginia personal injury attorney will investigate the causes of your injury to determine whose negligence is responsible. Then we will file a claim against their insurance company to help you get the money you need to cover your medical costs and other expenses created by your injury. This may include:
- Current and future medical care
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning potential
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain management
