Attorney Representing Victims Of Orthopedic Surgery Errors And Negligence
Orthopedic doctors have a small window of time to properly treat a fracture. Failure to diagnose and set the break can result in fusion of the bone and a loss of function.
If you have suffered permanent damage because an orthopedic doctor failed to diagnose and set a fracture, you may have a case of malpractice against the doctor. At the law firm of Tucker & Miller, our medical negligence lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case. Call our Phoenix, Arizona, law office today at 602-870-5511.
Common Orthopedic Medicine Errors
Our lawyers handle all types of orthopedic surgery errors, including:
- X-ray mistakes, such as failure to spot a fracture;
- Injuries caused by hip and knee implant errors;
- Failure to treat post-surgical infections and complications;
- Compartment syndrome (damage to muscles and nerves) following orthopedic surgery;
- Failure to refer you to an appropriate specialist, such as a hand surgeon to repair a break in your hand or wrist joint; and
- Setting a broken bone in a cast when surgery is needed to properly align the bones.
Was My Orthopedic Surgeon Negligent?
No doctor can guarantee a positive outcome when treating a serious fracture. However, if your doctor failed to follow a reasonable standard of care in your surgery and you suffer a loss of function as a result of the error, you may be a victim of medical malpractice.
When a hand, foot or heel is injured, the surgeon may need to order multiple X-rays to spot hidden fractures. If a fracture is allowed to fuse before it is properly set, the patient may suffer from limited mobility or intransigent pain.
