Hip dysplasia is when the ball on the top of the thigh joint does not fit properly in the socket.  The condition varies with some babies being born with the ball held loosely in the socket and others are completely dislocated. 

While hip dysplasia can not be avoided it is essential that the condition is identified during neonatal examination and treated early in life.  Failure to identify hip dysplasia can lead to life long problems with mobility and requirement for repeat hip replacement. 

Our solicitors here at Darbys have a wealth of experience in dealing with hip dysplasia claims and will do everything we can to achieve a positive outcome for your hip dysplasia case.  Please do contact us to talk through your, or your child's, hip dysplasia.  If due to medical negligence the condition was not identified early and properly treated we will be able to assist you in bringing a medical negligence claim.
