Legal claims against Mr Rahul Jain, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Former patients of Mr Rahul Jain, Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon have asked Williamsons Solicitors to investigate if the surgical care they received from him was negligent.

Mr Jain performed hip and knee replacement surgery at Clifton Park Hospital, York; Nuffield Hospital, York; The Yorkshire Clinic, York Hospital and Bridlington & District Hospital.  However as at October 2018 we understand that he no longer works at Clifton Park Hospital or within Ramsay Health; the reason for this is not clear.

A client of Williamsons Solicitors, Mr Whitehead, underwent a hip resurfacing procedure at the Nuffield Health York Hospital, which was performed by Mr Jain under the NHS Waiting List Initiative.   Following this Mr Whitehead developed pain and discomfort because of an increase in the length of his right leg; when measured, this was approximately 2.2cm longer than his left leg.  It was eventually admitted that the surgery Mr Jain performed was negligent because avoidable errors had occurred.  Unfortunately, Mr Whitehead had to take early retirement from his position as a PE Teacher.  Nevertheless we were able to agree a £150,000 settlement on his behalf.

Nick Gray - Williamsons SolicitorsIn April 2016, Mr Jain performed a full knee replacement on behalf of Brenda* at Clifton Park Hospital.  Post-operatively, she developed pain and restricted movement.  After no improvement with these symptoms a physiotherapist at the same hospital encouraged her to seek a second opinion.  X-rays and examination revealed that her replacement knee prosthesis was very loose.  She was advised that further surgery would be necessary to avoid serious complications developing; this is currently due to take place in the next few months.  We are in the process of investigating whether the surgical treatment she received from Mr Jain was negligent.

Mr Nick Gray, Solicitor and Head of Clinical Negligence Department settled the claim for Mr Whitehead against Mr Jain and he comments:  “Data from the National Joint Registry shows that Mr Jain completed at least 414 hip replacement and 288 knee replacements operations since April 2015.  I’m concerned that the avoidable damage Mr Whitehead suffered might have also happened to a number of Mr Jain’s other patients”.

Have used this firm for both buying and selling properties and would use them again. They've always been fair and reasonable in what they charged and done their best to keep me informed on developments in above transactions.

Excellent relationship management, clear and concise advice including option analysis. Very happy with all aspects of the service provided and the outcomes achieved. Friendly professional service.

Mr & M

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.


Friendly, fast and efficient. Sale of property went very well.


I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K

very helpful and efficient. thanks to all

Peter R

Mr Nick Gray was assigned my enquiry and worked with me throughout. He made himself available at all times and was always supportive to me on numerous occasions when I found myself unsure and admittedly nervous. He never let me down. I believe his advice was always good and I relied on it throughout. I think the award was the best I could have obtained and in conclusion I can honestly say that I am happy. The other contact I have had over the years was your receptionist, the face of your company. I was always greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. On the occasions I visited your Hull office I was always made to feel important. Thank you.


Professional and courteous team. Recommend highly.

I’ve rated my experience with Williamson’s solicitors as excellent. My case was handled by Mr. Gordon Sewell. Mr. Sewell was very quick to get to work on my case, as was necessary at the time. Everything he did for me was thorough and made sure I had every chance in my case. Everything Mr Sewell did for me turned out a success and I couldn’t have been happy with the way he dealt with myself, could communicated with myself and dealt with the case in its entirety. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Williamson’s solicitors again should I require it and would recommend their services to anyone. In fact, I already have since my experience! Thanks again Gordon.
