Orthopaedic Claims – what are they?
Orthopaedics refers to the bones, muscles and joints in the body. A doctor specialising in orthopaedics will often handle patients that have suffered bone fractures or who need hip or knee joint replacements or spinal surgery.
Negligent treatment of an orthopaedic injury, be it a failed hip or knee replacement, or delayed treatment of a fracture, can lead to severe problems.
Failures can have a far reaching effect. Negligent surgeries and poor aftercare can also lead to painful recovery periods and financial problems where the patient is unable to work.
If you haven’t got the mobility and independence you expected after surgery, then the medical negligence team at Bridge McFarland Solicitors can support you in making a complaint.
Hip and knee replacements are a very common procedure in the UK – the aim is to improve people’s mobility, independence and pain. If you or your loved ones’ procedure has not had the desired outcome then get in touch with our team today.
