There are close to 5 million surgical admissions each year with trauma and orthopaedic surgery accounting for a substantial proportion of operations. Claims arising from orthopaedic negligence are relatively common, but the consequences of the mistakes can be serious and life-changing.

There are close to 5 million surgical admissions each year with trauma and orthopaedic surgery accounting for a substantial proportion of operations. Claims arising from orthopaedic negligence are relatively common, but the consequences of the mistakes can be serious and life-changing.

A broad range of conditions and injuries are treated by orthopaedic doctors, including issues with bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves. When things go wrong, you may be left with long-term problems that impact on your personal life, work and hobbies.

Our specialist team of clinical negligence solicitors are experienced in handling a wide range of orthopaedic negligence claims. We take the time to listen and fully understand what happened to you, and only consult recognised experts in the field of orthopaedics to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome.

Examples of orthopaedic claims

  • Delayed diagnosis or undiagnosed fractures
  • Errors during joint replacement surgery
  • Failure of implants e.g. hip or knee
  • Post-operative infections
  • Poorly-fitted prosthesis
  • Nerve and tendon damage
  • Wrong site surgery

Accident and Emergency

Our Accident and Emergency departments provide an invaluable and often lifesaving service. With an estimated 21 million admissions to A&E departments every year, occasionally things do go wrong. A&E staff are often under pressure to make prompt diagnosis in circumstances which can be very challenging. When there are failures of care, the impact can be devastating for patients and their families.

Medical errors in accident and emergency medicine can arise in many ways. We have experience of handling a wide range of cases relating to A&E negligence, including those involving patients treated by paramedics, as well as A&E hospital doctors and nurses.

We will fully investigate the circumstances of your case and aim to make the process as easy as possible, guiding you through every stage. We know that often you want to understand why the A&E system failed you, to ensure the same thing doesn’t happen to someone else.

If you have suffered an injury or illness because of poor management, misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose you may be able to recover compensation.

Get in touch with our friendly, expert team for a free initial chat to discuss your case.

Examples of accident and emergency claims

  • Delays in ambulances reaching patients 
  • Failure by paramedics in treating patients correctly
  • Failure to correctly interpret test results such as scans, x-rays and blood tests
  • Misdiagnosing a medical condition
  • Failure to operate when necessary
  • Failure by junior staff to seek the opinion of a consultant or specialist doctor
  • Discharging a patient from hospital too soon
