About Missed Fracture Claims

If you suffer a fracture, be it a fracture of the spine, elbow or even finger, it is imperative that this is diagnosed properly and the correct treatment is administered to reduce pain and assist with the healing process.

Should a diagnosis be missed or delayed this can lead to:

  • Further pain
  • Incorrect healing, such as a bone healing in the wrong position
  • A requirement for more complicated treatment in the future
  • A longer recovery period

Reasons for a Missed Fracture

A medical professional may miss a fracture for any number of reasons but among the most common examples are:

  • An X-ray not being offered due to the symptoms of the injury
  • Inexperience resulting in an X-ray not being requested by the medical professional
  • Failure to spot the fracture on an X-ray
  • The X-ray results were not passed on to the doctor and so no further action was taken

If you or someone you know has suffered a missed fracture, the expert solicitors at JMW can help. We can prove that the medical professional involved did not act reasonably when assessing the injury and this resulted in the injury worsening and causing you more pain and suffering than was necessary.

A claim for medical negligence can be brought if it can be proven that on the balance of probabilities the outcome was worse for you than it would have been had the fracture not been missed and the necessary action been taken more quickly.
