Joint replacement claims

  • Posted

Joint replacement operations are undertaken daily at both NHS and private hospitals across the country with the intended benefit of providing relief from pain and increased mobility to patients.

The vast majority of these operations go smoothly without any complications, however when something does go wrong the consequences can be devastating to the patient.

If you have undergone joint replacement surgery and suspect that your operation may not have been performed correctly, you may be entitled to bring a medical negligence claim for compensation. At Ashtons Legal, we have previously supported a number of clients to investigate their treatment including in situations where the wrong prosthesis was used or was positioned incorrectly; where other bones have been fractured during the surgery; where the patients did not need to undergo joint replacement surgery; and where a lack of suitable follow-up care meant that the patient was left in an even worse position following surgery.

If you believe that your surgeon was negligent and that you have suffered further injury as a result of this, then please do not hesitate to contact our Medical Negligence team using the details below. Our experienced team of lawyers will be able to offer advice and guide you through every step of the claims process. Additionally our in-house rehabilitation co-ordinator will support you through your recovery.
