Knee Replacement Compensation Wales

Knee replacement surgery involves replacing bone and cartilage from the patient’s knee with man-made components. Unfortunately, in some cases this can go wrong, and medical negligence can occur.

Have You Suffered from Knee Replacement Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence may have occurred if:
  • The components used were defective
  • Further surgery was needed due to complications from the initial procedure
  • Further issues occurred due to the way the knee replacement was fitted
  • There was a failure to advise the patient of the risks and potential outcomes of the procedure
  • Infection occurred due to surgical errors, such as placing the prosthetic parts incorrectly
  • There was misdiagnosis and mistreatment
  • You suffered poor post-operative care which led to infection

What Are the Consequences of a Poor Knee Replacement Procedure?

  • Severe pain
  • Infection
  • Stiffness in the knee
  • Unexpected bleeding in the knee joint
  • Damage around the knee joint
  • Limited mobility
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Blood clots
A poor knee replacement may mean you end up needing further treatment, physiotherapy and alternative transport arrangements. We can help you get the compensation you deserve with a knee replacement lawsuit.

Case Study: Knee Replacement Compensation

T v Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

This claim related to the negligent performance of partial knee replacement whereby the incorrect component/adhesive was used resulting in failure of the revision surgery. The claimant suffered from permanent mobility issues and required further surgery as a result. A modest recovery was made which meant the claimant had to have their home adapted.

Damages were awarded in excess of £300,000.00.
