If you have ever dislocated one of the joints in your body will understand just how painful this can be. Sometimes dislocation happens as a result of a genuine accident, other times it is the sort of injury that could have, and certainly should have, been prevented.
In the latter instance you may feel that you have the right to make a compensation claim for personal injury, in which case you will no doubt want to seek the expert advice of an injury lawyer Calne.
What is dislocation?
A dislocation occurs when the ligaments surrounding a joint (for example, the shoulder or knee) are damaged, usually as the result of a severe impact, and the bones becomes misplaced.
Although every joint can become dislocated, your injury lawyer in Calne will be aware that some are more common than others, these include:
How can a dislocation occur?
Joint dislocations can be caused by a variety of events. Your injury lawyer Calne will have experience of dealing with joint dislocations that have occurred as a result of:
- Slips, trips and falls – dislocation can occur when people fall awkwardly after such an incident.
- Accidents at work – you might suffer a joint dislocation if you are working with dangerous machinery or responsible for lifting heavy objects.
- Sports – any active or contact sport can result in a joint dislocation, generally the most common are football, rugby, horse riding or tug of war events.
- Leisure activities – you could be attending an afternoon at an extreme sport centre, perhaps participating in an aerial assault cause as part of a stag or hen weekend, and suffer an injury that results in the dislocation of a joint.
