Claiming Compensation Against Orthopaedics

When it comes to movement and performing daily tasks, our muscles, tendons and bone structures make a large contribution towards our ability to perform these tasks well. As with anything in the human body, not using an area correctly or overuse of a certain muscle or tendon can lead to injury and in many cases this could require surgery to make a correction.

Orthopaedics is the branch of surgery that deals mainly with these complaints, and it is commonly used in the sports industry to help treat and prevent damage to athletes. A wide range of surgery options are available under this branch and they include both reconstructive surgeries in addition to arthroscopes and other elective surgeries used to help prevent a further level of damage.

As with any level of surgery, orthopaedics can be dangerous, particularly if there is negligence on behalf of the surgeon or the hospital. If you have undergone such surgery and have suffered as a result then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

What is orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine that deals primarily with muscle, joint and ligament damage and diseases. Surgeons are trained to specifically focus on these areas, and usually undergo a great deal more training that regular surgeons, as their field is far more specialised. Orthopaedics is big business as many large sporting teams rely on this area of medicine to keep their players in tip top condition. 

What injuries could I receive?

If you are injured as the result of negligence on behalf of an orthopaedic surgeon, you could receive any of the following injuries:

  • Muscular pain and discomfort if the injury is not correctly treated
  • Further damage to the muscles or ligaments if incorrect surgery is performed
  • Risk of infection or disease spreading
  • Potential allergic reaction to medications used during the surgery.

Who can I claim against?

If you have been left with a further injury or illness after an operation due to negligence on behalf of an employer, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred throughout the process – these could include medical expenses in addition to any loss of income from the period of your injury. These claims can usually be made against the responsible surgeon or any member of the hospital who you feel has been negligent towards you.
