Case Studies

Making a Claim for Hip Surgery Negligence

You may be able to make a claim for compensation if you have suffered a hip injury that was misdiagnosed by a medical professional, or if you underwent hip surgery and errors made during the operation led to increased suffering.

For example, a fractured hip that had been detected sooner may have been much easier to fix and not have caused you further problems, including reduced mobility and the need for total hip replacement.

Surgery is often performed on a person’s hip to improve their mobility and their quality of life. There are various reasons why an operation may be required, including injury, congenital abnormalities, arthritis, and wear and tear of a hip joint over a long period of time. Mistakes made during a procedure can have the opposite effect resulting in increased suffering.

Errors made during hip surgery can include:

  • Faulty hip replacement - a defective implant could require further surgery or, in more severe cases, reduced mobility requiring the use of a wheelchair
  • Incorrectly-sized hip replacement - if you are fitted with the wrong size hip this could result in further mobility problems as well as pain and discomfort
  • Loose implant - an implant could loosen quicker than it normally would if it has not been fitted correctly
  • Misaligned hip implants - an implant incorrectly inserted can lead to further problems due to excessive wear
  • Different leg lengths - following surgery some patients find there is a difference in the lengths of their legs requiring corrective surgery
  • Nerve damage - an error during surgery can cause damage to the femoral nerve and the surrounding nerves

If you have suffered unnecessarily due to surgical error making a claim can help you to secure the compensation to which you are entitled.

What are the types of hip surgery?

The main types of hip surgery are:

  • Hip resurfacing - also known as arthroplasty this operation involves metal implants being used to replace diseased or damaged parts of the hip joint
  • Total hip replacement - this can include either one or both hips being replaced with metal, plastic or ceramic parts
  • Hip revision surgery - this involves the replacement of a hip replacement joint
