Orthopaedic Claims

The field of orthopaedics covers a huge area of medicine. The term covers the musculoskeletal system, which are basically your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.

Orthopaedic Claims

As with all medical practitioners, clinicians providing orthopaedic treatment owe a duty of care to their patients. The consequences of misdiagnosis or administering the wrong treatment – whether it’s repairing damaged muscles, fracture care or painkilling injections – can be far reaching.

We have experience of a wide variety of orthopaedic claims, including delayed diagnosis of fractures, incorrect interpretation of radiology, failed prostheses, serious wound infections, nerve damage and spinal injuries. 

Proving a medical negligence case involving orthopaedics:

  • Breach of duty: An orthopaedic surgeon owes a duty of care to you when they diagnose and treat orthopaedic or bone related injuries and conditions. We have to prove, with expert evidence, that the standard of care you received fell below that of a reasonable and competent orthopaedic surgeon and was therefore negligent.
  • Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm

If you’ve suffered from orthopaedic care that you think hasn’t been carried out properly, get in touch to see if we can help. Call us to discuss your situation or fill out the form and we’ll call you back.
