Orthopaedic injuries are injuries involving bones, ligaments and joints. These types of injuries are treated by Orthopaedic Surgeons.
Sometimes surgeons or doctors can get things wrong. A doctor may have missed a fracture on an x-ray or performed an inadequate examination in a busy Accident and Emergency department or a surgeon may not have performed surgery to an appropriate standard.
Examples of Orthopaedic Injury claims include:
A fracture missed on an x-ray
Failure to take an x-ray resulting in a failure to diagnose a fracture
Missed scaphoid fracture
Hip replacement where component was wrongly fitted
Knee replacement where the component was wrongly fitted
Wrong component used during hip replacement
Ligament reconstruction performed inappropriately
Anterior cruciate ligament
