Common orthopaedic injury claims
While many orthopaedic procedures are considered routine operations today, the reality is complications can and do arise. The surgeon assessing your situation should have adequate experience and understand the full nature of your injury.
If you receive substandard care at diagnosis, during or after your operation you could face lifelong difficulties. Your quality of life can be significantly impaired meaning you could be entitled to make an orthopaedic injury claim.
There are many circumstances where you may be eligible for compensation as a result of medical negligence.
If you’ve received improper care like the examples shown below, you can make a claim today.
- Undiagnosed, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of fractures
- Delayed diagnosis or mistreatment of post-operative infections
- Surgical errors
- Nerve, tendon or ligament damage
- Joint replacement surgery errors
- Unnecessary surgery on a broken bone
- Incorrect joint replacement or prothesis size
If your injury isn’t listed but you’re still worried you’ve been wrongly treated, you could still be eligible. Get in touch and we’ll be there to listen and help as much as we can.
Why should I make an orthopaedic claim?
Orthopaedic surgery negligence can severely affect your social, family and working life. Daily pain and discomfort can be debilitating. And if that injury is someone else’s fault, your life shouldn’t have to be put on hold.
You may no longer be able to attend social events or perform simple activities such as cooking a family meal. Your once loved hobbies and interests may be too painful to enjoy. You may also be unable to work facing a drastic loss in earnings. As these changes can affect all aspects of your life, you may be left with emotional and mental distress as a result.
Making an orthopaedic injury claim can help reduce the physical, emotional and financial burden to you and your family. If a family member is taking time off work to help care for you at home, you’re losing yet more money. Claiming compensation will not only cover expenses for your rehabilitation, it will reimburse your past and future losses to your household’s income.
By making a claim, you’ll also help medical practices be more mindful when approaching future patients. Every claim encourages medical professionals to assess their procedures and prevent similar situations from happening again. You might just save another person from the same experience.
