Making an orthopaedic negligence claim
If you would like to claim compensation for an orthopaedic injury arising from your medical treatment then simply call our free legal helpline on 0800 975 8091 or send us an email.
Orthopaedic negligence involves substandard medical care involving fractured bones and joints.
Orthopaedic surgeons deal with a very wide area of clinical practice, from simple fractures, to multiple injuries of life-changing severity. With that wide area of responsibility comes a very broad range of risk of something going wrong, particularly where surgery is involved.
Not every unsuccessful orthopaedic procedure means there has been negligence, but if orthopaedic care is sub-standard and the patient is injured or his prospects of good recovery are damaged as a result, then a medical negligence solicitor should be consulted for help and advice.
Common orthopaedic negligence claims include undiagnosed fractures, incorrectly set fractures and surgical errors in hip replacement.

We have links with some of the finest orthopaedic surgeons in the country who we can call upon to provide a guidance on the standard of the medical treatment provided and whether or not it is likely to be considered negligent.
