Hollywood Orthopedic Injury Law Firm
The Scope of Orthopedic Care
Florida orthopedic doctors and surgeons handle injuries related to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves throughout the human body. Orthopedic physicians are responsible for many implant surgeries, diagnosing and operating on muscle tears, bone fractures, hip replacements and nerve damage. Given the scope of the orthopedic specialty, mistakes are bound to happen. While human errors are inevitable, patients usually are not responsible for these injuries, which can result in debilitating pain and suffering, financial loss, and even wrongful death.
