New Jersey Orthopedic Malpractice Lawyer

Orthopedic errors can have devastating consequences. People who submit to surgery after breaking a bone expect to be on the path to healing. They do not expect to face worse complications such as compartment syndrome or nerve damage. Unfortunately, an orthopedic surgeon's error can result in ongoing problems such as:

  • Compartment syndrome
  • Reflex sympathetic disorder (RSD), also known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Arachnoiditis

In some cases, an orthopedic surgeon's primary error was failure to warn patients of these possible complications. In other cases, a doctor's mishandling of surgical procedures may be identified as a likely cause of the complication. Whatever the circumstances, a person who is left to cope with any of these disorders after bone surgery may experience chronic pain, numbness and long-term disability.

If you are struggling with the aftermath of an orthopedic physician's errors, it is good that you are preparing to seek the advice of a malpractice attorney. Your financial losses as well as your pain and suffering may mean that you have a valid malpractice claim. Britcher Leone, LLC, offers no-obligation consultations to people who have suffered:

  • Improper setting of a fracture, leading to mal-union or mal-alignment
  • Misdiagnosis of a fracture
  • Orthopedic errors leading to amputation
  • Failure to diagnose compartment syndrome in a timely manner
  • Failure to diagnose or treat pulmonary emboli after surgery

If Medicare is your insurance provider, keep in mind that this government program may refuse to pay for follow-up care needed after a proven medical error has taken place.
