Orthopedic Malpractice Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Orthopedic Specialists

Orthopedic specialists treat issues related to bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, making diagnoses and repairing bone fractures, muscle tears, and nerve damage. They also surgically implant replacements for damaged hips and knees. Despite their skill and training, they make errors that can result in debilitating pain and suffering, financial loss, and even death.

Orthopedic negligence can take many forms, such as:

  • Loss of a limb
  • Development of potentially fatal blood clots before or after surgery
  • Complications from various surgical procedures
  • Blood and nerve vessel damage during surgery
  • Failure to diagnose or properly treat bone fractures
  • Misreading or failure to order an x-ray
  • Failure to fit a patient with appropriate surgical screws or plates
  • Anesthesia-related injuries
  • Infection or sepsis
  • Decreased mobility
  • Failure to treat inflammation or pain as a result of the healing and treatment process
