Orthopaedics Claims Solicitors

Our specialist medical negligence team has a wide variety of experience in orthopaedic negligence and has won many claims for victims.

Orthopaedics refers to the bones, muscles and joints of the human body. A doctor specialising in orthopaedics will often handle patients that have suffered bone fractures or who need joint replacement or ligament reconstruction surgery.

  • the hand, shoulder and elbow surgery
  • joint reconstruction
  • paediatric orthopaedics
  • foot and ankle surgery
  • back and spine surgery
  • musculoskeletal oncology
  • surgical sports medicine
  • orthopaedic trauma
