What is hip replacement medical negligence?

Though hip replacements are more common in older people, it has become commonplace for people in their 40s to have their first procedure. Most artificial hips have a lifespan of 15-20 years, and then 10-15 years for each replacement thereafter.

Revision surgery and increasing age both increase the risks of these surgeries. Of course, there are risks with any procedure, but hip replacement negligence cases are typically pursued when a medical professional chooses using the wrong type or size of component or damages nerves and surrounding structures.

What does hip replacement compensation usually pay for?

These injuries are not usually life-threatening, but can cause long-term pain and disability. The reason for pursuing a claim is to help financially support the injured person in the event they are unable to return to work, they require a mobility vehicle, need additional care around the house or require changes to their accommodation.
