Tens of thousands of joint replacement and other orthopaedic operations are carried out each year, more often than not significantly changing the patient’s quality of life. Sometimes however there can be avoidable complications which, in certain circumstances, result in a substantial deterioration in quality of life.
If you feel your surgery or treatment has gone wrong please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.
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.
Mr G had shoulder surgery. Due to a surgery mistake a nail used in the procedure penetrated the joint and there was a failure to act on this and remove the nail. It caused significant damage to the joint and the injury impacted on the client’s work and day to day activities. His claim was settled for £60,000.00.
