Injuries resulting from negligence in orthopaedic care vary from relatively minor soft tissue injuries that resolve quite quickly to serious fractures, including spinal injuries.
Even seemingly minor orthopaedic injuries can lead to long-term problems, whilst serious cases very often give rise to care needs and requirements for specialist equipment and adapted accommodation that will last for an individual's lifetime, as well as causing loss of earnings, which should be properly investigated. Penningtons Manches Cooper specialises in these serious orthopaedic claims, including amputation claims.

Settling a claim for a missed diagnosis of CDH at 18 months, leaving our client with very significantly impaired mobility as the risk of surgery making her condition worse when diagnosed at 7 years was too great.
