Did Your Orthopedic Surgeon Make a Mistake?

Representing Orthopedic Surgery Patients Injured in New York

Patients trust that when they undergo orthopedic surgery, everything will go according to plan. After all, neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons, like all surgeons, are held to the appropriate standard of care in their profession; however, even with neurosurgeon and orthopedic surgeon standards, sometimes the appropriate standard of care during a surgical procedure is not followed and an injury occurs.

When things don't go according to plan and the standard of care was not followed, we can help. For 40 years, the medical malpractice attorneys at Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., have helped injured New Yorkers hold health providers accountable and recover the compensation they deserve. We have successfully put our knowledge, resources and experience to work and achieved more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We fight, you win.

How Orthopedic Surgical Errors Occur

As highly trained specialists, orthopedic surgeons routinely perform surgery on joints, muscles, connective tissues and bones. No matter how routine an orthopedic procedure may be, an act of negligence can have devastating effects.

If proper care is not taken during treatment of orthopedic injuries, permanent disability can result. Casting of a broken arm or a displaced leg can result in paralysis, uneven limbs or chronic pain. Our attorneys represent patients who have been injured as a result of errors committed before, during and after orthopedic surgery, including cases involving:

  • Spinal cord injuries, such as surgery performed on the wrong spinal disk
  • Knee surgery errors, such as mistakes made during anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair or surgery on the wrong knee
  • Shoulder surgery errors
  • Injuries caused by hip replacement surgery or hip implant errors
  • Failure to properly set fractures and broken bones
  • Failure to properly read X-rays
  • Damage to nerves and muscles (compartment syndrome) after orthopedic surgery
  • Inadequate care for post-surgical infections and other complications
