Compensation for misreading scans, x-rays, mris
When treating injuries and illnesses, doctors and GPs use a number of different devices to adequately identify what type of problem a person might have and this allows them to treat this problem quickly. Just some of the common types of tests that a medical professional can perform include scans, MRIs and X-rays and these are all used in their own individual way to identify any health problems that a person might have.
Although in most situations these devices can help to save lives and fix health problems, when not used correctly they can also lead to a whole host of potential problems and potentially leave a person untreated if they have been misread. In this situation you may consider making a compensation claim to cover your costs.
WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST FOR A MISREAD SCAN, X-RAY OR MRI?
If you have suffered from a misread scan, X-ray or MRI then you will most likely look to claim against the person who is responsible for reading these tests and in general that will be your doctor or GP, depending on who has received the results. Once the radiographer has performed these tasks they will usually refer them back to the GP for further treatment and it’s at this point that the negligence can happen.
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON INJURIES THAT COULD RESULT FROM THIS?
If you have been the victim of this type of negligence then there are a number of potential injuries that you could be left with. Some of these common injuries include:
- Failure to remove an item which might have been lodged inside the body
- Failure to identify a potentially serious illness
- Worsening of existing symptoms
- Misdiagnosis of an illness or injury
- Failure to spot a broken bone or fracture.
