Misdiagnosis or delayed treatment of fractures
A common area of medical negligence involves the failure to diagnose and treat fractures. In some “missed fracture” cases, there is a narrow window of opportunity to diagnose and fix a bone injury to ensure proper healing.
We have pursued many successful compensation claims for patients whose fractures have been missed on x-ray, or have otherwise not been properly treated and fixed. This can sometimes result in lifelong deformities and consequential financial losses.
We have also represented Claimants who have suffered infections following joint replacement surgery (particularly hip and knee replacements).
