Common orthopaedic injuries
Whilst many orthopaedic injuries resulting from accidents, they can also be caused by clinical negligence. Trained professionals like orthopaedic surgeons can make mistakes when carrying out complex medical procedures, that can cause serious damage and injuries as a result.
Our solicitors are able to help a wide variety of different cases.
Orthopaedic injury claims often stem from:
Misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis of fracture injuries
Failure to X-ray upon initial attendance at A&E
Failure to spot and treat tendon damage resulting in further injury
Claims can also stem from clinical negligence during one of these procedures:
- Surgery including knee replacement surgery
- Spinal surgery including spinal fusion surgery, decompression, discectomy and laminectomy
- Hip replacement or resurfacing
- Hand, arm or shoulder surgery
- Leg, ankle or foot surgery
- Tendon repairs
