Hip operation claim after medical negligence

Hip operation claimPryers, the York based solicitors, recently settled a medical negligence claim for £40,000. A lady suffered ongoing sciatic nerve pain following a hip replacement operation that was carried out negligently. The evidence was that the components were misplaced, causing the hip to dislocate and in doing so, stretching the sciatic nerve, causing prolonged damage. She underwent revision surgery but it was the sciatic nerve palsy causing foot drop that has caused her ongoing disability and led to the hip operation claim.
