Orthopaedic injuries

Contact Us for Information

Orthopaedic injuries affect the body’s musculoskeletal system, including the bones, joints, nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons. They can be caused by a motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall and can result in serious on-going symptoms and limitations. The full severity of these injuries is often not fully understood until a great deal of time has passed, and an individual has engaged in regular and ongoing rehabilitative therapy. When you have a serious orthopaedic injury, you may be uncertain where you stand legally and what your rights are. The lawyers at Mann Lawyers can give you the information, objective advice and advocacy you need.

The time and support you need to recover

An orthopaedic injury can result from severe impact, such as a motor vehicle accident accident or slip-and-fall accident. Treatment and rehabilitation programs are tailored to each individual case by medical professionals, and they can include surgery, medication, prescribed exercises and physical therapy. During rehabilitation, your ability to continue at your job may be affected by not only the physical injury, but also its emotional effects. As your law firm, we will work to get you the financial support you need to recover.

We will take the burden of a serious injury lawsuit off your shoulders and deal with no-fault benefit or disability insurance claims while you recover. We will continue to communicate with you and help address your treatment and rehabilitation needs. When the time is right, you will be a key partner in any legal process we undertake on your behalf. As your lawyers, we work with you in all aspects of your recovery, both medical and financial.

Mann Lawyers is a respected Ottawa law firm dedicated to ethics, integrity and results in legal practice. We offer a free initial consultation for potential clients with personal injury claims.

 Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies as an orthopaedic injury?

Twisted and sprained ankles, broken legs, dislocations, fractures and more are considered orthopaedic injuries. In addition, damage to cartilage, ligaments, joints, or bones also fall under this classification. Recovery from such injuries can be long, costly and time-consuming, and if not healed correctly, your everyday way of life can become severely limited. If you have suffered in this way due to someone else’s neglectfulness, Mann Lawyers can help you build a compelling case.

What If I fully recover before presenting my case?

Even if you do fully recover from your injuries – and we sincerely hope that you do – there is still the question of whether you can be fairly compensated for lost wages, time, and quality of everyday life. Strain can be placed on emotions and relationships during the recovery period as well. Working with a personal injury lawyer experienced in cases pertaining to orthopaedic injuries can present you with a means of building your case by organizing evidence and structuring your side of the story. This can lead to a potentially more appropriate settlement in many instances.

What if I am overwhelmed by disability insurance paperwork?

The Mann Lawyers team wants you to recover comfortably, free of stress and with peace of mind. Therefore, we are happy to take the burden of sorting and filling out such documentation off your shoulders, giving you time to rest and reclaim your quality of life more easily. From no-fault benefit claims to those dealing with disability insurance, our experts in orthopaedic injuries have you covered.

What should I ask when hiring a personal injury lawyer?

We recommend asking friends, family members and professionals you know who have hired a personal injury lawyer. Some may have an established relationship with them, offering valuable insight into what they are capable of doing for you. However, bear in mind that personal injury is a specialized area of law that requires dedicated training, so be sure to check for someone with practical experience and expertise in this area. A proven track record would help to ensure peace of mind – you want to be comfortable with whomever you choose to work with.

  • I could never have imagined what care Mann Lawyers have given to my family through the years. Edward Masters is truly a great lawyer and an asset to my family. Thank you.

  • A couple of years ago my life changed as a result of a slip and fall.  I sustained some serious side effects that have continued to negatively affect my quality of life.  As a lay person, suffering with a concussion, it can be very daunting to navigate the legal system.  Thankfully, I was advised to seek out Mann Lawyers and specifically you (Karine Devost), as my legal counsel.  That was probably the best advice I have ever received.  Karine, you are intelligent, empathetic and you really "listen".  You and your team's professionalism and commitment for a fair settlement went far beyond my expectations.   I want to thank you so very much for your kindness and your dedication.  I will be forever grateful to you for making my life better.  It is because of you that I received a fair and reasonable settlement without going to court.

  • After having a serious motorcycle accident in 2015, I was comfortable having Mann Lawyers deal with my legal matters.  My lawyer, Ted Masters, kept my wife and me informed concerning the legal steps as well as getting help that was required for my recovery. I appreciated the fact that Ted was able to explain things in a down to earth way.  He was always available when needed and I would highly recommend him and Mann Lawyers.

    Client Feedback
  • I was represented by Mann Lawyers in a disability related case. Ted Masters built a strong argument based on my disability of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Ted has a lot of experience and strategies to advocate on behalf of his clients. As a result, we were successful. Ted’s approach with me was always reassuring, logical, humane and respectful of  my personal situation. I really appreciated that he could be reached easily at all times.  

    Client Feedback
  • Mr. Cantor helped me settle both my Accident Benefits and Torts claims. Throughout the process he was always my strongest advocate and fought for me even when I was not strong enough to fight for myself. Mr. Cantor, and his Legal Assistant Julie were always there for questions or support. He was able to put together a team that helped me get back to work and normal functions of everyday life post-accident. I was very satisfied with my final compensation and highly recommend Mr. Cantor for his professional, supportive and compassionate services.

    Client Feedback
  • I was referred to Kevin Cantor, from Mann Lawyers, after the death of my brother in 2016. After explaining what had happened, Kevin agreed that we had grounds for a medical malpractice suit. Kevin was excellent, explaining what would happen if we went ahead with the suit and what to expect from the defendants lawyers. Kevin was always prepared for court and I never lost confidence in his ability to help me when I needed it the most. Kevin and his secretary Julie both did an awesome job. This was a long process and as the case progressed, Kevin showed complete professionalism, and caring. Kevin was successful and I was awarded a sizable settlement. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone facing the challenge of losing a loved one due to malpractice and negligence.
