You may have been injured in a slip, trip, fall or any other type of accident and suffered an orthopaedic injury, in some cases without even knowing it at first. When you are examined by a medical professional after an accident, it is an Orthopaedic surgeon that will assess fractures and injuries to bones as well as joints and ligaments. If your surgeon or doctor misses any fractures or injuries, the consequences can be severe.

A surgeon may miss fractures or injuries because they have failed to carry out the appropriate examinations or have missed seeing them on X-rays. This could be due to neglect, an accident or inexperience on the doctor's part. In any case, if you are injured as a result of negligence, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

Forbes Solicitors understand how painful and distressing an orthopaedic injury can be, furthermore, failure to diagnose a problem early on can lead to complications and further injury.

It's vital that you seek legal help from Forbes Solicitors as soon as possible if you wish to claim compensation for your injuries.
