Orthopaedic is a medical specialism that covers conditions that affect bones, joints and muscles within the human body.
An increase in complex surgery over recent years has fuelled the rise in claims against orthopaedic surgeons. Negligent orthopaedic surgery can cause nerve damage and infection.
Claims can also be made regarding other areas of orthopaedics such as:
- delay in diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)
- failure to diagnose fractures
- failure to recognise symptoms of cancer
- wrong site surgery
- poor wound care
If you have suffered an injury as a result of medical negligence arising from orthopaedic surgery then we understand that the consequences can often be life long and debilitating. If you, or a family member, feels that you have suffered from medical negligence then we can help. If we can prove that you have suffered an injury then we can recover the compensation you need to ensure that you can access the best rehabilitation treatment, aids/equipment and, if necessary, specialist housing.
