There are close to five million surgical admissions each year for trauma and orthopaedic surgery, accounting for a substantial proportion of operations. Compensation 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 affect your personal life, work and hobbies. As a result, you may seek to make a claim for orthopaedic medical negligence.
Our specialist team of clinical negligence solicitors, including Sara Westwood and Simon Bransby, formerly of Morgan Jones Pett, are experienced in handling a wide range of orthopaedic injury compensation 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

Orthopaedic case studies
Mr R had knee replacement surgery. Shortly following the operation he suffered an infection which was treated with antibiotics. Due to a failure to follow him up, he developed a significant infection within the knee joint, which necessitated a number of operations. These were unable to eradicate the infection, so he was left with permanent symptoms of pain and reduced function. There is also the risk he may require an above amputation. His claim settled for £107,500.00.
