Orthopaedic Injury - Zayouna Law Firm

An orthopaedic injury or fracture is an injury sustained to the musculoskeletal system, which includes the joints, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Act of 1997 now houses the orthopaedic injury law. The law was nestled previously under the Tort Law of Canada in 1860. The orthopaedic injury law enables you to seek financial compensation for damages that you have incurred from the injury.

The loss of wages and medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering, are used to determine your eligibility for damages. Our orthopaedic injury lawyers can help strengthen your case and ensure all facts are accurately presented and in your best interests.

Why is an orthopaedic injury law important?

Orthopedic fractures range from mild to severe and debilitating. These injuries can cause you to lose wages. Even if this loss is only temporary, you are entitled to seek damages for any financial costs that arose because of your oprthopaedic injury.

The law is imperative to the process of establishing entitlement and liability. Our dedicated legal representative can help explain the process of presenting and negotiating your claim. They are the professionals who stay current in their knowledge of all the legal changes or amendments. You will have peace of mind that your legal counsel has presented the best argument at the negotiation table, and the liable party is presenting you a fair offer for settlement.

Who uses an orthopaedic injury lawyer?

Liability is determined through negotiations or by trial if necessary. Our lawyer will always present the best evidence possible to represent your claim and help you seek a fair settlement.

The liable party may also undermine your suffering and present you with a dismal offer with pressure tactics heavily applied to coerce you into signing off and accepting their low-ball offer.
