Orthopedic Injury Lawyer

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an experienced orthopedic injury lawyer, located in Edmonton and serving central and northern Alberta. I have handled many hundreds of cases of broken bone injuries (orthopedic injuries) including, hip fractures, knee fractures, shoulder fractures, ankle fractures, wrist fractures, foot fractures, and spinal fractures.

I often see orthopedic injuries in cases where a pedestrian was hit by a motor vehicle or was in a high speed highway crash. I understand the importance of having an orthopedic specialist review all of your medical evidence and conduct an assessment to determine how your overall body function has been affected. Not every orthopedic specialist can do this. The specialist must be certified in using the American Medical Association Guidelines to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. I can make sure you have the orthopedic specialist you need to receive fair compensation for your orthopedic injury.

FAQs: Orthopedic Injuries

Orthopedic injuries (broken bones) include hip fractures, knee fractures, shoulder fractures, ankle fractures, wrist fractures, foot fractures, and spinal fractures. Sometimes these broken bones are very serious and require surgical intervention by an orthopedic surgeon. Days or weeks of hospitalization are not uncommon.
If you have an orthopedic injury resulting from an accident, you need to protect yourself. Call Joseph A. Nagy. Edmonton orthopedic injury lawyer!
To learn more about how Joe can help you, read the Top 5 Reasons to Hire an Edmonton Injury Lawyer by Joseph A. Nagy. Orthopedic injuries can lead to insurance compensation based on a loss of future income earning capacity. Ask Joseph A. Nagy, personal injury lawyer Edmonton, if you qualify.

A permanent clinical impairment can have a serious impact on your future employability and your future income or income-earning capacity claim. A person can be employed or earning the same income following an orthopedic injury and still have a valid claim for loss of future income earning capacity (LFIEC). LFIEC is defined by the courts to mean a “loss of a capital asset.”

In assessing damages for loss of capacity, consideration is given to the following factors:

  1. whether you have been rendered less capable overall from earning income from all types of employment
  2. whether you are less marketable to potential employers
  3. whether you have lost the ability to take advantage of all job opportunities which might otherwise have been open to you
  4. whether you are less valuable to yourself as a person capable of earning income in a competitive labour market.

To assess your medical condition and functional and vocational capacity for a LFIEC claim, I use members of my team of personal injury experts. Courts and insurers will require specific proof before payment will be made to fix, help, or make up for your ability to earn future income. It can make a huge financial difference in the outcome of your claim.
