Fractures

Was your fracture misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated?

Medical professionals sometimes get it wrong when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of fractured bones.  We have extensive experience in dealing with fracture claims.  If you feel that your fracture was misdiagnosed, or incorrectly treated, then we may be able to help you claim compensation.

Medical negligence claims for fractures usually fit into one of two categories:

  • Failure to diagnose

A patient with a broken bone might be sent for an X-Ray where incorrect or insufficient views of the bone are carried out, where the X-Ray might be misread or they may not even be sent for an X-Ray in the first place.

  • Incorrect treatment post-diagnosis

A fracture might be treated improperly, causing problems such as healing delays, infections or permanent deformity or disability which can lead to the need for repeated surgery and sometimes even amputation.

Although the two points above are the most common cases we see, we have also acted in cases where the plaster cast has been applied incorrectly leading to pressure damage, especially in diabetic patients, which can also have serious consequences.
