Medical negligence during orthopaedic surgery and treatment can be life changing. Find out from one of our specialist solicitors whether you have an orthopaedic claim.
Orthopaedic medicine treats problems that occur in the bones, muscles, ligaments or joints. Common procedures include knee or hip replacements, surgery to repair fractures or broken bones and spinal treatments or surgery. Sometimes diagnosing the problem, identifying the best course of treatment, or carrying out orthopaedic surgery goes wrong which can lead to an orthopaedic claim. Sub-standard orthopaedic treatment can be devastating both physically and emotionally. You may have lasting symptoms, require ongoing treatment or need additional surgery in the future.
We take the time to understand how your treatment has affected you, your family and your income; what your future needs are, whether treatment, care, specialist equipment and so on are needed; and how much it will cost.
We work on a no win, no fee basis, so there’s no need to worry about costs. Plus, our specialist solicitors provide an initial free assessment of your orthopaedic claim.
Occasionally, orthopaedic treatment goes wrong. Some of the most common cases include delayed diagnosis of fractures and negligently performed hip replacement procedures. Other examples of orthopaedic claims include:
An orthopaedic compensation claim can help you and your family move forward. It can provide closure about what happened, and the practical and financial support you deserve.
Orthopaedic injuries can have a significant impact and affect many aspects of your life. For example, you may suffer poor mobility, have chronic pain, or be unable to return to work. An orthopaedic claim can provide financial security, as well as funding for any care requirements or treatment you need. Above all, it means you can focus on getting better.
