Compensation for an undiagnosed fracture

Fractures can be incredibly painful experiences and in many situations they can also be relatively hard to identify, especially if they are quite small. If you are the victim of quite a substantial impact then chances are that you might sustain a fracture and depending on the type of fracture that you sustain it could have a major impact on your lifestyle.

If you are injured in this way then you will likely make a visit to your local doctor to have your injury checked out and at this point it is their responsibility to identify any potential problems that you might have. If your doctor fails to do this and you are left with an untreated fracture then you could consider making a compensation claim against them. 

Who could I make a claim against for an undiagnosed fracture?

In general it is the responsibility of your GP or healthcare professional to adequately diagnose any health issues that you might have and if you do visit your doctor then you expect to be treated to the best of their ability. Negligence in the area of medical treatment can be dangerous and in some situations it can even be fatal, but in this situation it will normally lead to the development of new symptoms on top of the worsening of existing symptoms and if you do find this is the case then a claim for compensation could be just what you need.

Where might I suffer from this negligence?

There are many different situations where you may consider making a claim for negligence and these include:

  • Failure to read an x-ray or scan correctly
  • Failure to refer to a specialist
  • Failure to provide adequate treatment
  • Failure to perform adequate tests
  • Failure to give an accurate prescription.
