Orthopaedic Injuries

Moosa-Duke Solicitors deal with a lot of claims arising because of mistakes made by Orthopaedic surgeons in both diagnosis and when conducting surgery.

We have dealt with the following:

  • Delays in diagnosing spinal injuries such as Cauda Equina Syndrome
  • Delays in dealing with broken bones and fractures
  • Poorly performed Hip replacements
  • Poorly performed /delays in surgery on joints (shoulder, elbow and hand)
  • Sub-standard follow-up care, including failing to recognise and treat post-operative infection
  • Undetected fractures
  • Poorly performed Knee replacements including failures to correctly align knees during knee replacement surgery

Orthopaedic injuries such as a failed knee operation or undetected fractures could have a long term impact on all aspects of your life.  This may include your work or family life.  You may find that you need care and help with things you could previously do.

What may seem a minor injury may lead to long-term problems, and a need for  specialist equipment and adapted accommodation.
