Orthopedic Specialists

Orthopedic specialists treat issues related to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, making diagnoses and repairing bone fractures, muscle tears, and nerve damage. They also surgically implant replacements for damaged hips and knees. Despite their skill and training, they make errors that can result in debilitating pain and suffering, financial loss, and even death.

Orthopedic negligence can take many forms, such as:

  • Loss of a limb
  • Development of potentially fatal blood clots before or after surgery
  • Complications from various surgical procedures
  • Blood and nerve vessel damage during surgery
  • Failure to diagnose or properly treat bone fractures
  • Misreading or failure to order an x-ray
  • Failure to fit a patient with appropriate surgical screws or plates
  • Anesthesia-related injuries
  • Infection or sepsis
  • Decreased mobility
  • Failure to treat inflammation or pain as a result of the healing and treatment process

I am so grateful to have had Mr. Matt Curtis help me with my very tough case.

This is my first time working with an attorney and I am so grateful to have had Mr. Matt Curtis help me with my very tough case. Many well-known lawyers across the state wouldn’t take my case but Mr. Curtis gave it his all. He is a very hard worker and so driven. If it wasn’t for his dedication, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Mr. Watkins is an excellent attorney.

Mr. Watkins is an excellent attorney and we appreciate all his efforts to resolve our case! Thank you so very much for all you and your team did!

You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me.

My husband and I had taken the advice of someone else over yours – only to later regret it. You got the results we wanted in three days after we wasted 7 weeks with someone else. You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me, and…

I’m so appreciative.

You and your team handled everything so professionally and have been so personable and compassionate. In particular, your paralegal was wonderful to me, showed me and others such empathy, and made everything so smooth. I will be happy to recommend your firm to anyone who needs legal help.

Overall a wonderful job and I will definitely recommend you!

I had a wonderful experience with you and Tad! I think the outcome was great, in spite of my former employer’s attempts at dodging the issue and I am extremely happy in my new position.

Our attorney was tough, very professional, and knew his stuff!

Our case was very difficult and challenging and therefore was very time-consuming. Each step of the way, Matt explained what was going on and what I could expect, and he always kept in contact through emails or phone calls. Matt is sincere, kind, and compassionate – he has become more than just our attorney. He is more like family!

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer.

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer by the way he handled the case. He always kept me informed and the entire team was professional. I would highly recommend him and the firm.

For five and one-half years you never tossed in the towel.

The very fact that you maintained and were able to share a belief in my unique circumstances was remarkable along with your stellar professionalism. You delivered and you have my deepest appreciation for your efforts.
