Compensation claims for a failure to diagnose a fracture

We are fortunate enough in the UK to have one of the finest health services in the world, with staff that are trained to the highest standards in dealing with medical injuries. Sometimes this isn’t always the case however, and if you fall victim to negligence then you could look into the possibility of making a claim. If you have ever had a fracture then it is important that you get it seen to immediately because it could worsen or become infected, which can be very painful.

Although medical negligence is rare it can still happen and when it does you shouldn’t have to suffer as the result of someone else’s mistake. A fracture may not seem like much, but depending on where it is and how long you leave it, it can cause you a lot of pain and trouble. If you believe you have suffered as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim to help you with any losses and health issues you have developed.

Who might I be able to make a claim against?

Medical negligence is unacceptable in modern times and if you believe that you have suffered at the hands of a medical professional then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of people who could be at fault here, whether that’s a doctor or surgeon, or a radiologist who failed to notice the fracture on an x-ray. A fracture can be very serious for your health if not noticed and this has happened to you then a claim could be your best option to help you on the road to recovery.

What circumstances may I look to make a claim?

If you believe that your fracture has not been diagnosed and you have suffered as a result of this, then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples could include:

  • Claims if your pain has intensified
  • Worsening of existing symptoms
  • Claims if your fracture becomes a break
  • Claims against incorrect prescription of medication
  • Claims against an infection as a result of missed diagnosis
