Orthopaedic Medical Negligence

Orthopaedic claims

Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine which treats the bones, muscles and joints of the body (musculoskeletal system). Orthopaedic physicians will use non surgical and surgical treatment to treat orthopaedic injuries. 

Unfortunately, medical mistakes can be made in this field of medicine, such as:

a) Incorrect or delayed diagnosis of a fracture, injury or disease;

b) Mistakes made during surgery causing damage to the nerves, muscles etc, 

c) Incorrect fitting or incorrect sizing of a knee or hip prosthesis. 

d) Mis-diagnosis, delayed diagnosis or mis-management of a postoperative infection.

e) Performing surgery on the wrong site

If you or a family member have suffered a serious injury which you believe was as a result of negligent orthopaedic treatment and/or surgery, you may be entitled to bring a medical negligence claim.
