Experienced orthopaedic claim solicitors

When you suffer an orthopaedic injury, the window of opportunity for optimal treatment is often very small. Therefore if a clinician fails to diagnose an injury correctly at the outset, or offers substandard treatment advice, then the implications can be significant.

In serious cases, poor treatment may result in permanent pain, earlier onset of osteoarthritis or even amputation.

Clearly this can have huge implications on your quality of life and it can affect your ability to work or care for your family. It may also mean that you have additional care needs which need to be met.

We have a wide range of experience in orthopaedic negligence claims of all kinds, including:

  • amputation
  • bunion surgery
  • delay in diagnosing a fracture
  • hip dysplasia
  • hip replacement surgery
  • knee replacement surgery
  • limb loss
  • misdiagnosed slipped femoral epiphysis
  • misdiagnosis of fracture
  • podiatric surgery
  • substandard management of a fracture or other bone or joint injury
  • substandard management of meniscal tear injury

Helping you uncover what went wrong

We will thoroughly investigate the treatment you received fully. We will liaise with specialist independent orthopaedic experts to establish exactly what went wrong in your particular case and advise you on the steps we can take to seek redress on your behalf.

Claiming for compensation

Support focused on you

We know you will want to get back to your normal day-to-day life as soon as possible.

We can seek advance payments of compensation so you can begin therapies and treatments prior to the settlement of the case, to ensure you make the best recovery.

Getting you back on track

If substandard treatment is identified then a financial award can put you back on track, for example by compensating you for your pain and suffering, to reimburse any loss of earnings you have suffered, or to pay for any additional treatment you require as a result of substandard treatment.
