Orthopaedic Claims

Injuries and issues with bones, joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves are among some of the most common, and routinely treated, medical complaints in the UK.

If you have suffered medical negligence due to misdiagnosed fractures, or as a result of orthopaedic surgery, we understand that the impact can have a long term and devastating effect on your life. You may be unable to work, have impaired mobility or be unable to enjoy simple activities as you used to.

Our specialist team of clinical negligence solicitors are experienced in handling such orthopaedic surgery claims. We’ll 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.
