Orthopaedic Claims

Orthopaedic claims mostly involve a failure to diagnose a fracture and often result from an inadequate examination of a patient or the misinterpretation of an X-ray.

A recent case dealt with by BLB involved a Weber B fracture of a lady’s ankle which was treated conservatively for too long and when it was eventually discovered that the fracture had failed to unite a stabilisation operation had to be carried out. In another case a knee replacement operation resulted in the prosthesis being incorrectly fitted and after several attempts were made to rectify the mistake the prosthesis had to be removed.
