Orthopaedic Injury Claims

Injuries to the bones, joints and ligaments can have a significant impact on those who have sustained them, specifically relating to their ability to work and the pain and suffering caused.

If you or a loved one have sustained such an injury due to the fault of an orthopaedic surgeon, the effects can be even more difficult to bear.

Ramsdens Solicitors is here to help you through this stressful time, and we will help you get the compensation you deserve after being injured through no fault of your own. We have gained a high level of expertise in dealing with cases in this area, so can offer sound advice and support for you and your family.

ERRORS IN SURGERY

Orthopaedic injuries can occur when mistakes are made during surgery. Common incidents of this nature include:

  • Errors during hip replacement surgery
  • Errors during knee replacement surgery
  • Mistakes during ligament reconstruction surgery
  • Mistakes made during foot surgery

The list above is not exhaustive, and if you have sustained an orthopaedic injury at the hands of a surgeon, we still want to speak to you.

MISSED FRACTURES

In some cases, fractures can be missed by doctors and surgeons, leaving patients at risk of their injury worsening. Inadequate examinations by a medical professional can have a significant impact on a patient’s life.

OTHER COMMON INJURIES

Other common cases involving orthopaedic negligence include:

  • Missed or late diagnosis
  • Making the wrong diagnosis
  • Failure to perform or interpret diagnostic blood tests
  • Damage to the nerves
  • Damage to circulation
  • Serious infection of a wound
  • Failure to order X-rays
  • Inadequate cleaning or dressing of wounds
