Help with a hip replacement compensation claim
Hip replacement operations are routinely carried out by both the NHS and private healthcare providers. However, the care and service that you receive should not be any less just because this is a standard surgical procedure.
In the majority of cases people undergoing hip replacement tend to be in the 60 – 80+ age range. This is due to the fact that as we age the normal ‘wear and tear’ on our joints can build up to the point whereby it becomes problematic. In these cases most elderly patients tend to require hip replacement due to the onset of osteoarthritis (so called ‘wear and tear’ arthritis) or rheumatoid arthritis. Both can be very painful conditions leading to months or perhaps years of suffering and reduced mobility before a replacement operation can be performed.
In cases such as these it can be a devastating experience for an older person to have endured long periods of pain waiting for an operation only to have that surgical procedure fail due to negligence or a faulty replacement joint (including ‘Metal on Metal’ or MoM devices). In such situations adequate compensation may be necessary to meet the cost of increased care needs, additional home modifications or future treatment expense for you or an ageing relative. Our in-house solicitors will ensure that your claim for negligent hip replacement is dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible whilst still ensuring that you or a loved one receive the maximum possible amount of compensation.
