Hospital Missed Fracture
If you have suffered a bone fracture that was missed or not at first diagnosed by a medical professional and subsequently led to the requirement for more complicated treatment, you may be in a position to make a hospital missed fracture claim.
A hospital missed fracture claim may also be available if the mistakes or non diagnosis made by the hospital or medical practitioner, has caused you or your loved one to have further pain and suffering.
A hospital missed fracture claim can occur in two ways.
The first type of claim you can make is if it was appropriate for an x-ray to have be carried out but the hospital failed to carry out an x-ray.
The other type of missed fracture claim is when an x-ray is carried out, but the x-ray is misread by the medical professional, so that the fracture was not seen or diagnosed.
If a fracture goes undiagnosed for a long period of time, it can mean it is much harder for a patient to fully recover from the break. Delays in fracture diagnosis can also lead to a patient suffering permanent deformities and lifelong complications that can affect an individual’s day-to-day life now and into the future.
