Compensation for errors made during an x-ray

X-rays are a common tool used in the diagnosis of bone injuries and if you have recently received a fracture or a broken bone in an accident then chances are that you will be headed to hospital to undertake an X-ray. A simple and practical form of examination, these are designed to highlight any injuries you might have in a concise way and allow the doctor to clearly see what is wrong, before devising a method of healing the injury.

Although care is always taken during an X-ray, unfortunately mistakes and accidents do still happen, but if you feel you have been the victim of a situation where negligence has occurred, you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.

What are some common errors which occur during an X-ray?

When you undertake an X-ray there are a number of common errors which can occur, which can leave you with potential health problems. These include:

·         Errors made during the X-ray

·         Errors caused by a faulty X-ray machine

·         Errors caused by poor training on an X-ray machine

·         Errors caused by a failure to adequately examine an X-ray

·         Errors made during the handling of completed X-rays.

Who could have been responsible for this type of error?

In general your healthcare professional will be responsible for any accidents which have occurred and it’s their responsibility to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment when in their care. Unfortunately from time to time accidents can happen and mistakes are made and if you do find yourself in a position where you have been a victim of this then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence with your injuries.
