LEBANON HIP INJURIES ATTORNEYS

Common hip injuries are strains, bursitis, dislocations and fractures. Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis are conditions which can be significantly worsened by trauma. In a car wreck, truck wreck, motorcycle wreck or a fall, direct trauma to the hip can cause injuries ranging from sprains to fractures. Older people with pre-existing degenerative conditions may suffer fractures from an injury that would not have harmed a younger person. In older adults, arthritis can lead to inflammation of the hip joint and the breakdown of cartilage which cushions the bones. Trauma, such as the impact of a car wreck, can cause the condition to be made much more painful. Bursitis and tendonitis are often caused by repetitive activities that overwork or irritate the hip. A very forceful trauma can cause dislocation or fracture which can lead to a vascular necrosis or death of the bone tissue. If you are in wreck or a fall and you have pain, swelling or loss of range of motion in your hip you need to seek medical attention.
