Our experienced team of Clinical Negligence solicitors have a wide variety of experience in claims arsing from orthopaedic negligence and have succeeded in securing compensation for many clients who have suffered injuries as a result of negligent surgery.
Orthopaedic claims cover cases where injuries have been sustained to your body’s musculoskeletal system such as your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves and muscles.
We have handled a wide range of claims on behalf our clients who have sustained injuries from a delay in diagnosing a fracture to spinal injuries as a result of negligent care during surgery.
Some of our claims have been brought for:
- Missed fractures
- Medical errors during surgery
- Missed red flag symptoms leading to injuries that could have been avoided.
It may be that you have suffered injuries as a result of a delay in diagnosis of a fracture. Cases such as this often arise where a patient’s scan and x-ray has been misinterpreted. In some instances had the imaging been reported correctly less invasive treatment may have been available.
Sometimes surgery does not go as planned and mistakes are made which have an adverse outcome for you. Surgical mistakes can significantly reduce your mobility and quality of life. In some cases surgical mistakes can result in permanent nerve damage, spinal injuries and associated mobility problems. If this happens to you, you need expert solicitors to investigate your case and help you get the compensation that you deserve.
You may have been injured as a result of a doctor’s failure to recognise or act upon your symptoms. In some cases if a symptom is not picked up and treated quickly it can lead to catastrophic injury resulting in significant disabilities.
If you feel that you have been affected by any of the above you will need an experienced solicitor to advise and guide you through your case. This is where we are able to help. Contact a member of our team today for an initial no cost, no obligation assessment of your case.
