Compensation for failure to diagnose broken bones

Broken bones can often be an incredibly painful experience for any individual, and if you have ever broken a bone then you will know how painful it can be not only upon impact, but also when you go through the rehabilitation process. Dealing with a broken bone can be an increasingly complicated task and in many situations it can prevent you from doing a number of relatively simple tasks – including going to work.

If you have been the victim of another person’s negligence and as a result you have been left with a broken bone, then you may consider a compensation claim to cover any additional costs that you have incurred in addition to any pain and suffering that you have been through.

IF I’M LEFT WITH A BROKEN BONE WHERE MIGHT I CONSIDER DIRECTING MY COMPENSATION CLAIM?

In general any compensation claim that you make should be directed at a person who has been directly negligent towards you and therefore left you with a number of injuries as a result. In the case of broken bones these could happen in a number of different situations, but most commonly they will happen as the result of either a motor vehicle accident or a fall in the workplace. If you find yourself in either of these situations then you could claim against another negligent driver or your employer.

WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS OR INJURIES MIGHT I SUSTAIN AS A RESULT?

If your doctor or GP fails to diagnose a broken bone then you could be left with a number of potential health issues as a result, some of these issues include:

  • Development of new symptoms
  • Worsening of existing symptoms
  • Potential to cause further breaks or damage to surrounding tissue
  • Additional pressure being placed on other joints
  • Potential for an infection.
