A catastrophic orthopedic injury is when someone suffers a severe, long-term or permanent injury that prevents them from performing the functions of daily living.It can take months or even longer to fully recover from a bone, a stress fracture or a severe dislocation. This type of injury can force an injured person to miss work for extended periods of time and struggle with activities that most of us take for granted.
Long-term physical disabilities or disfigurements due to injury may require some level of assistance such as in-home care or a licensed vocational nurse (LVN). Orthopedic trauma typically involves bone fractures caused by falling or a forced impact trauma as a result of a motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, tour bus accident, train accident, truck accident or bicycle accident.
