Compensation for a faulty x-ray

X-rays are perhaps one of the most important elements in the diagnosis of any bone fracture or break, and if you are suspected to have injured yourself in this way then when you do arrive in hospital chances are an X-ray will be one of the first tests that is performed on you to determine exactly how you are injured.

X-rays play a crucial role in identifying exactly what is wrong so that we are able to fix it – whether it requires surgery or not – and get straight back on the road to recovery. If you feel that you have been the victim of a faulty X-ray, then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result of this.

Where could an error with an X-ray potentially happen?

There are a number of potential problems which can occur with X-rays if they aren’t conducted properly and some common examples of these include:

·         Failure to accurately operate an X-ray machine

·         Failure to appropriately examine an X-ray

·         Problems and faults with the X-ray machine

·         Poor maintenance which has been conducted on the X-ray machine

·         Errors which result from poor training.

What are some potential issues which can occur as the result of a faulty X-ray?

If you are the victim of a faulty X-ray then it can have a direct impact on the way that you are treated and the level of treatment that you are able to receive. Faulty X-rays can leave you unable to receive accurate treatment and therefore in considerable pain, with the potential for your existing symptoms to worsen. In addition, you could develop new symptoms if your original ones are left untreated.
