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.

Following negations with the defendant, Mr X was offered £250,000 gross of the interim payments of £52,009 to settle the claim. Mr X accepted this offer and was very thankful for our assistance with his claim.
Absolutely amazing service, I had an accident back in 2016 and they fought tooth and nail to get me the treatment and pay out that I deserved, my case handler Amy kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Howells to anyone.
From start to finish my daughter’s medical negligence claim was handled brilliantly. Communication was excellent and her case was handled sensitively and professionally, with a successful outcome at the end.

Sue dealt with my personal injury claim with professionalism at all times. She kept both myself and my son fully informed throughout the process and always responded to queries quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in using this firm again.

Stuart Marks
I recently used Howells' for a claim. After an initial telephone conversation, Amy (our assigned representative) went through the process of our potential claim. She outlined time frames and the strength of our case. We ended up receiving compensation above our expectations. I was thoroughly impressed the team from Howells and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They handled the whole process in a manner which inspired confidence, knowing that we were in good hands.

Simon Marks

You were great and I cannot thank you enough for the end result. Also thank you to Glendora and Amy for all your help. 5* service all round

Life changing issues affected our daughter due to a misdiagnosis and then catalogue of errors. We are so grateful to Sue and the team and the lovely Glendora! Thank you so much for all your hard work, perseverance and pure doggedness. Hopefully this has saved another family from having to go through this! Amazing service from such nice people! Enjoy the hamper!

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.
