Leg & Hip Injuries
Your hips and legs take you to places you want to go. They allow you to walk, run, jump, sit, stand, kneel, climb, bike, swim and do many more activities. They are the main components of your own and individual means of transportation.
An injury to the hips or legs drastically changes the day-to-day activities of the victim’s life. The victim can no longer participate in the activities previously enjoyed. Pain invades everything the victim does. And when this happens as the result of the negligence of another, the pain is even more devastating.
Your hips and legs can be injured in many different ways. You can break or fracture your bones. You can strain or sprain your ligaments, tendons and muscles. Your joints can be dislocated or separated. And you can sustain injuries such as cuts, bruises, contusions, burns and scars. Any of these injuries can seriously affect your quality of life. The pain can last for months, years or even a lifetime. Many fractures require surgical repair and result in the placement of pins, plates and screws in the bones that stay there for the rest of your life. Strains and sprains weaken the soft tissues so that future injury becomes imminent. And scars always last a lifetime.
