Injuries from Orthopedic Medicine
Why work with a medical malpractice lawyer in Fort Lauderdale?
Orthopedic medicine is the specialty that deals with disease or injury
to bones and joints. Issues in orthopedic medicine include:
- Failure to diagnose fractures
- Improper treatment of fractures
- Problems during joint replacement
People who have fractures are at an increased risk of developing a potentially
deadly complication known as pulmonary embolism. This is when a blood clot develops and blocks
blood flow between the heart and the lungs. There are medications and
precautions that can prevent this occurrence, and orthopedists are supposed
to know this.
If your orthopedist failed to properly treat your injury, you may be able
to file a
malpractice claim or lawsuit to recover compensation. With the help of
a Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorney at our office, you can seek compensation for your pain and suffering,
medical bills, lost wages, and more.
Orthopedic operations are just that - operations. All risks of negligence
during an operative procedure come into play, including:
If you suspect that you were injured due to the negligence of a healthcare
contact Kelley/Uustal for legal attention. We can work together to recover the compensation
that you both need and deserve at this time.
