When one is injured in an accident, a common injury that is both painful and debilitating is orthopedic injuries. In this category, an individual can damage the musculoskeletal system which then affects the mobility of the victim. The injury can result in pain when moving the affected area, such as the feet, or result in no movement at all. 

At Cueria Law Firm, we have seen several types of orthopedic injuries, including sprains and strains. A sprain or strain is an injury in this category that will see the ligaments, muscles or tendons affected in the body. A sprain occurs when the ligaments are stretched or torn. Ligaments are fibrous tissue in the body that help to connect bones together. With a strain, there will be a tearing or stretching of a tendon or muscle. 

Such an injury can be very painful and can happen due to varying circumstances such as an accident at work. When you or a loved one have been affected by this type of orthopedic injury due to someone else’s negligence, it’s time to contact our office for assistance. We can help you to seek compensation for your injury to deal with time off from work as well as medical costs. 

Causes of Sprains

Sprains will occur when you tear or overwork a ligament when putting stress on a join. A common cause of a sprain can include tripping or falling. When considering the negligence of another, a fall or tripping can occur when a surface is slippery, unmarked or uneven. An area without guard or handrails can also cause a fall as well as sprains occurring a motor vehicle accident. 

Strain Causes

A strain can occur due to a chronic injury, based on the repetitive motion of the individual. When a muscle or muscles are moved in the same manner for an extended period of time or with a repetitive motion, it can cause a strain on the body. Athletes often see straining occur as well as those who work in a physically demanding employment position. 

An acute strain can occur when a tendon or muscle stretches too quickly or too far. An acute tear can be the result of running, lifting heavy objects or slipping, among other causes. The injury can be the fault of your employer if proper training is not provided for handling equipment, if the workplace is poorly supervised, co-workers are negligent or acting recklessly or the equipment needed to complete work is not provided. 

Symptoms of a Sprain or Strain will include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Popping sound during the injury for a sprain
  • Limited mobility of the affected area
