Orthopaedic Medical Negligence Solicitors

Fractures and injuries to bones, joints, muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments are known as orthopaedic injuries and are usually treated by orthopaedic surgeons. The causes of these injuries usually include road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls.

However, when an orthopaedic injury is caused or made worse by a procedure or treatment that has gone wrong, an injury that is misdiagnosed, or diagnosis is unnecessarily delayed, this is known as medical negligence and you may have the right to compensation.

Do I have an orthopaedic or spinal cord negligence claim?

Orthopaedic injuries usually occur during diagnosis or treatment. If you’ve suffered due to one of the following mistakes, you might be able to claim orthopaedic compensation:

  • Delays or mistakes in diagnosis, particularly in relation to fractures or broken bones
  • Problems with surgery or aftercare for knee, hip or elbow replacement procedures
  • Surgery carried out without obtaining proper consent
  • Surgery carried out on the wrong part of the body
  • Damage to nerves during surgery

These kinds of errors, oversights and delays cause unnecessary pain and suffering to the injured person and can even worsen their condition. Contact us for a free consultation to help you understand whether or not you have a orthopaedic claim.
