Compensation for a faulty scan

When you are being diagnosed with an injury or illness, one of the most important parts in the diagnosis process is that of performing a scan to identify any potential problems which might arise – and this can give you a much better idea of where a problem might be occurring and therefore how it can be fixed.

Although many scans are carried out in an efficient and effective manner, unfortunately this is not always the case and in some situations you may find that you are the victim of a faulty scan, or a scan which has not been performed properly. If you do find that this has happened to you, then you may look to make a claim for compensation.

What are some potential errors which can happen during scans?

Scans can lead to a number of potential errors occurring depending on the situation and some situations where you could look to claim include:

·         Faulty scans which are the result of faulty scanning equipment

·         Failure to adequately perform a scan

·         Failure to adequately interpret exam results

·         Failure to adequately prepare a patient for a scan

·         Failure to perform a scan on the appropriate area of the body.

Who could be responsible for this type of accident?

The person who is responsible for your scan will generally be responsible for any problems that happen during the scan, and if they have shown negligence in this way then you could look to make a claim for compensation against them. You may also consider making a claim against the medical establishment if they have failed to adequately maintain their equipment and you have been injured as a result.
