Joint Injuries

230 joints create the poetry in motion that is the moving human body. Our joints are marvels of Bioengineering allowing us to move with an utter sense of effortlessness. But when a person damages one of their joints, especially their shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee or ankle, the functional impact is profound.

Joint injuries can seem deceptively. After a fracture a person’s pain level may be quite manageable, but a properly advanced claim requires a considerable amount of concern for the future. Fractures that penetrate the articular surfaces of a joint predispose a person to osteoarthritis. With this type of arthritis, essentially, the disrupted joint surface increases friction, which wears away the cartilage, which then allows the bones to grind against each other causing pain.

Tim Boland and Darcy Romaine recovered $1.87M for a nurse who suffered a devastating knee injury.

The jury must think of you in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60s, 70’s 80’s and 90’s. They must consider the activities you will have to forego to preserve your injured joint. They will have to consider the number of surgeries you may undergo in your lifetime, and the outcomes of those surgeries.

For Example, in Thornhill v. Shadid [2008] O.J. No. 372, Tim Boland and Darcy Romaine recovered $1.87M for a nurse who suffered a devastating knee injury. We recovered $480,500 to provide her with future care. We also recovered $225,000 in recognition of her pain and suffering, which is the highest award for a knee injury in Ontario.
