Orthopedic Malpractice Lawyer

Injured by an Orthopedic Procedure?

Orthopedic surgeons repair damage to patients’ bones, tendons, ligaments and other structures. Every surgery has risks, but the risks posed to patients who undergo orthopedic surgery are unique.

Orthopedic malpractice may involve a post-operative infection, compartment syndrome, or an anesthesia error or medication error. The surgeon may perform the wrong surgery or perform the correct surgery on the wrong site, perform the surgery poorly, or fail to refer a patient to another specialist (such as a neurologist or another orthopedic specialist) who is better qualified to treat a patient.

Although they come in many forms, orthopedic malpractice cases have one thing in common: a negligent physician causing injury to a patient. To prove an orthopedic malpractice case, the injured party must be able to demonstrate that a doctor did not meet the established standard of care during their medical treatment. The standard of care can be defined as how a prudent physician would have managed a patient’s care under the same or similar circumstances. Establishing a failure to meet this standard is a critical aspect of a successful orthopedic malpractice case.
