Orthopaedic Errors – Compensation Claims
The medical discipline of Orthopaedics involves the study and correction of problems with bones, ligaments, tendons and joints. Orthopaedic surgery therefore involves some major interventions and if an operation is performed negligently there is a distinct possibility that existing injuries may be exacerbated or new ones caused. This in turn may require additional surgery, with the associated likelihood of prolonged recovery time, greater persistence of pain, and possibly an incomplete recovery at the end of the process.
