If you have been left with a significant leg length discrepancy or a nerve injury following a hip replacement you should contact MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE TEAM
While some leg length discrepancy after hip replacement is inevitable and acceptable. What is unacceptable is a matter of degree – the greater the discrepancy the more likely the court will find it unacceptable.
As well as leg length discrepancies surgeons undertaking hip replacement should take care to avoid injuries to nerves such as the sciatic nerve. Damage to such nerves can be negligent.
