Orthopaedic negligence refers to the failure of an orthopaedic surgeon or other medical professional to provide appropriate care, which results in harm to the patient. This can include misdiagnosis, failure to properly treat orthopaedic conditions.
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.
