Compensation for errors made during an MRI scan

MRI scans make up an important part of any medical diagnosis. In many situations they are used in areas where you are not able to physically see an injury, or in a situation where an X-ray simply doesn’t give a clear enough picture. Used properly, MRI scans can be crucial in identifying serious injuries and serious illnesses.

Although in most cases taking an MRI is a fairly common procedure, unfortunately there are still some situations where mistakes and errors can be made if this isn’t done properly. If you do find yourself in a situation where this has occurred, then you may look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result.

What could potentially happen as the result of a faulty MRI scan?

You could find that you have been the victim of a faulty MRI scan in a number of different situations, some common examples of where this might have happened include:

·         Errors made through the use of a faulty MRI machine

·         Errors made through poor maintenance of an MRI machine

·         Errors caused by inadequate training

·         Errors caused by a negligent MRI operator

·         Errors made when examining an MRI scan.

Who might be responsible for this type of accident?

If you feel that you have been the victim of an error made during an MRI scan then there are a number of people who you may consider making a compensation claim against. In general, this type of claim could be made against an MRI operator if you feel that they have been negligent, or perhaps against your healthcare professional if you feel that they have not adequately examined your scan.
