Fracture Claims We Assist With:

Delay in referring or failing to refer to hospital

It is reasonable for a patient with a possible fracture or broken bone to expect a doctor to refer them to the hospital A&E department. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and can result in additional treatment is necessary, recovery delayed or bones wrongly fusing.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Delay or failure to carry out an X-ray or Scan

Doctors use x-rays and scan to help detect fractures and broken bones. These digital images are designed to locate the injury and help in choosing the most appropriate treatment. Sadly, sometimes things go wrong such as a failure or delay in carrying out an x-ray or scan or faulty imaging equipment.

Missed fractures

One of the most frequently occurring medical errors is missed fractures. Many of us suffer a fracture or a broken bone at some stage, and it's no surprise for a doctor to be presented with these types of injuries. Sadly, however, it is disappointing that some patients suffer unnecessarily when a fracture is not spotted early enough to prevent further injury, or are wrongly treated causing further additional treatment.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Scaphoid fractures

The scaphoid is a small bone located at the bottom of the thumb. Injury to the scaphoid is relatively common, often the result of falling and landing on an outstretched hand. Unfortunately, despite the regularity that doctors deal with these types of fractures, they are often missed. Failing to spot a fracture or break can cause significant problems such as additional treatment being required, extended recovery times and even permanent injury.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Plaster cast errors

Breaks and fractures are incredibly common. Plaster casts are often used to immobilise bones so that they can properly heal and prevent further injury. Unfortunately, sometimes orthopaedic practitioners get things wrong by wrongly fitted plaster casts. This can result in unnecessary complications such as pressure sores and infection, additional treatment being required and even permanent injury.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of negligent orthopaedic care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Botched fracture surgery

Sometimes fractures and brakes require surgery. Orthopaedic surgeons perform a wide range of procedures to repair bone injuries often with the aid of implants. Sadly, not all surgery goes to plan and some patients are avoidably harmed by negligent surgeons, failed procedures, even the wrong types of metal plates or pins being used.

If you or a loved one has suffered because of failures during surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.
