Orthopaedic Injury Compensation
At some stage in your life, there is a likelihood that you may break a bone, whether it be a minor fracture from a fall, or a more serious injury sustained from a workplace incident or road traffic accident.
An orthopaedic injury can be long-lasting, affecting the joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, bones and nerves.
We are here to help you
Should you or a loved one experience a broken bone, you should expect to be treated within a hospital to ensure your procedure and recovery is as quick and problem-free as possible.
In most cases, this is exactly what happens. However, if something does go wrong, we can provide legal advice and financial compensation to help you carry on with your life.
Orthopaedic compensation claims can arise from:
- the misdiagnosis of fractures
- failure to x-ray upon initial attendance at A&E
- failure to properly treat the fracture once detected such as placing the injury in plaster when surgery should be performed
- surgery being incorrectly performed
Orthopaedic injuries can also occur following surgery such as:
- hip replacement or hip resurfacing
- hand, arm or shoulder surgery
- leg, ankle or foot surgery
- knee replacement or knee surgery
- spinal surgery
How to make a claim
If you feel your orthopaedic injury has been inappropriately treated or caused subsequent to surgery, we can provide the expert advice you need to proceed.
Our knowledge of medical cases will ensure your claim for compensation is handled efficiently, putting you and your loved ones at the heart of our work.
We will guide and support you throughout your claim process and answer any questions you have without the use of complicated medical jargon.
