Minnesota Hip Injury Lawyer
Hip injuries often occur due to a slip and fall accident, a car or truck accident or a work related accident. However, an injury to the hip can happen anytime, anywhere. The hip joint is an extremely stable joint which means that if you have suffered a hip injury, you have taken a pretty bad fall or been in a serious accident. If you or someone you love has suffered from a hip injury due to someone else’s negligence on the road or anywhere else, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC to see how we can help you get compensation for your emotional, physical and financial suffering.
Hip Injury Trauma
There are a number of serious injuries that can affect the hip including the following:
- Pelvic fracture
- Broken hip
- Acetabular fracture/hip fracture
In addition to these injuries, there are a number of complications that can arise from a hip injury surgery including bone death, infection, deep vein blood clots and arthritis.
It is extremely important that all nursing homes, malls, shopping centers and other premises keep the obstacles blocked off and the floors dry and clean in order to prevent hip injuries from occurring. If you have been injured in a hip accident, regardless of the circumstances, you will need to seek medical attention. Write down as many details as possible about the accident, obtain contact information of any witnesses to the accident and take a few pictures of the scene. McEwen & Kestner, PLLC can help you with the rest.
Hip Joint Injuries and the Elderly
A hip joint injury can happen to anyone; however, the elderly are much more susceptible to serious hip injuries. Some of the common accidents that can result in a hip injury include a slip and fall or premise liability accident as well as a defective product or product liability accident. Elderly people need special beds, baths and other household units. If these are not up to the safety standards or if they are found to be defective in any way, a fall could ensue, causing hip injuries and other serious complications.
Our attorney will seek compensation for your hip injury
Treatment for a serious hip injury can take time. You can expect a hip replacement in most cases which will involve a complicated surgery. The recovery time can take up to three months and you will need a lot of equipment and care during this time. Furthermore, you will most likely suffer from a lot of physical pain before and after the surgery. You will need rehabilitation, medication and specialist consultations. You will most likely need to take months off work and hire someone to help out around the house. All of these costs can add up. Why should you have to suffer financially as well as physically for someone else’s mistake? McEwen & Kestner, PLLC will fight to ensure this does not happen.
