When an Accidental Injury Means You Will Need Knee or Shoulder Surgery
Contact the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel
At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we represent a wide range of clients who have been seriously injured through a variety of circumstances including the following:
- Car crashes
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Sidewalk / building accidents
- Roadway accidents
- Workplace accidents including explosions
- Incidents of violence in jail or prison
When a client requires knee surgery after a motor vehicle collision or shoulder surgery after a work site accident, we caution our clients not to rush to settle the case. Determined and optimistic, an accident victim may hope that knee surgery or shoulder surgery will correct the injury brought about by the accident.
The painful reality for many clients after knee or shoulder surgery, however, is that true recovery is elusive or never materializes. The surgery may bring new complications of its own, such as development of narcotic painkiller dependence or lingering pain resulting from RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), a painful surgical complication. Damage to nerves in surgery may leave an accident victim still unable to return to work or resume favorite life activities.
Precisely because of the risk of complications and disappointing results of knee and shoulder surgery, we advise patience and caution. Clients who rush to accept a seemingly large settlement may regret that decision and wish they had taken negligent parties to court in pursuit of just compensation that would truly cover economic losses as well as fair compensation for pain and suffering resulting from the injury and its aftermath, including surgery.
