Orthopaedic surgeons deal with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. For example, you are most likely to come into contact with an orthopaedic surgeon if you have broken a bone, or if you have an arthritic joint which requires replacement.
The work orthopaedic surgeons do is essential and can often give people with limited mobility a new lease of life. Unfortunately however, claims regarding negligent orthopaedic treatment are fairly common. At Girlings Personal Injury Claims we have extensive experience in dealing with the following types of orthopaedic claims:
- Delayed diagnosis of fractures
- Negligent joint replacement surgery e.g. knee and hip replacements
- Delayed diagnosis or negligent treatment of soft tissue injuries such as Achilles tendon ruptures and anterior cruciate ligament ruptures
- Paediatric orthopaedic claims such as the delayed diagnosis or negligent treatment of developmental hip dysplasia
If you think you have a claim arising from negligent orthopaedic treatment, do not hesitate to contact our team of specialist solicitors. Compensation can be claimed to help improve your quality of life by covering the cost of items such as care, aids and equipment, physiotherapy and adapted transport.
