Thousands of patients pass through the health care system each week with injuries to their joints, bones and ligaments or other orthopaedic problems and conditions.

We understand that this can be extremely distressing and we recognise the frustration you experience when the length of time it takes for your injury to heal is extended due to the poor care or incompetence of a healthcare professional. Although most doctors and nurses work to a high standard sometimes, through lack of care, it may result in you, the patient, suffering from a much more serious injury.

When things go wrong

It is not surprising mistakes occur from time to time which may result in, to name but a few:

  • Delayed and/or inaccurate diagnosis
  • Unacceptably poor techniques during surgery
  • Further damage to muscles and nerves during treatment
  • Misaligned bones and structures

How can Woodcocks, Haworth & Nuttall help you?

Our specialist team of medical negligence solicitors are specially trained to determine whether the orthopaedic injury you sustained was caused by a medical professional’s negligence.
