Post-traumatic Arthritis Injury Lawyer

What Is Posttraumatic Arthritis?

Post-traumatic arthritis or PTA is a condition that can develop after an accident that affects the joints. This condition will cause arthritis such as osteoarthritis in some cases after a slip and fall, trip and fall or after a serious car accident. The symptoms of this condition include:

  • Swelling of joints
  • Synovial effusion
  • Pain in the joints
  • Intra-articular bleeding
  • Limited range of motion
  • Reduced grip strength
  • Radial deviation
  • Pronation
  • Supination
  • Dorsal angulation
  • Post reduction
  • Ulnar variance
  • Radial inclination
  • Ligamentous injury
  • Anatomical changes
  • Loss of skeletal muscle mass
  • Articular incongruence
  • Longer time to heal after injury
  • Intercarpal ligamentous injury
  • High-energy trauma fractures

Developing Arthritis After an Accident or A Fall Injury

You may wonder how it is possible to develop post-traumatic arthritis after a fall or a car accident. What happens to the joint is that your fall will create a traumatic personal injury that will detrimentally affect the healing process. For example, if you slip and fall on your knee, you may have a knee injury that never quite heals properly. This will leave open the door for a post-traumatic arthritis to develop in that knee joint in later months or even years.

Fracture or Ligament Tear Lawsuit Lawyer

You may have been injured in a car accident or fall, and may have suffered a fracture or ligament tear in your joints. This accident will sometimes lead to a post-traumatic arthritis that will develop over time in the same area of the traumatic injury you experienced. The reason for this issue medically, is that the mechanobiological pathogenesis takes effect after a trauma to the bones or joint. Said in plain English, there is fluid that will form after an injury to the joint, and this can increase rather than decrease during healing. That leaves the door open for you to develop a post-traumatic arthritis in that joint in the future. The inflamed joint areas have an inflammatory reaction, which can turn into a chronic post-traumatic arthritis of the joint. This condition will include swelling, severe pain and often internal bleeding.

This type of injury can result in a permanent disability in some people, which will prevent them from ever returning to gainful employment in the future.

Do I Have a Case for Post-traumatic Arthritis After an Accident or a Fall Injury?

Diagnosing the acute symptoms following joint trauma can be difficult to diagnose right away. After a fall or a car accident, you may have had an inflammatory condition that just never goes away. That is often a precursor to post-traumatic arthritis, but not always. This condition is complicated, because it is difficult to determine the mechanobiological, epigenetic changes or even inflammatory mechanisms that start the process to post-traumatic arthritis. All you will know is that your joints still ache months following a car accident or fall accident, in the time that you should have healed.

What Are the Phases of Healing for a Post-traumatic Arthritis?

There are definite phases to healing after a fall or car accident trauma to the joints. You will first experience the trauma, then have an intermediate phase where you will have systems in place to help your body heal. Next, you will have a phase where you have days or months of being asymptomatic and have no symptoms yet of post-traumatic arthritis. Following the asymptomatic phase, you will move on for months to years to a chronic phase, where the cartilage, molecular and cellular changes in the cartilage around the joint structures become more and more inflamed, and that is where your post-traumatic arthritis will take hold. This can take hold in your joints for years after an accident, and may never let up in keeping you uncomfortable, in pain, and experiencing a lowered quality of life as a result of an accidental fall or car accident.
