A fracture injury can be very painful, especially where this is missed by a medical specialist and left untreated. Because fractures can be difficult to see on an x-ray, your doctor may have overlooked what has been causing you significant pain and suffering.
The medical negligence solicitors at Healys can help claimants secure full compensation for missed fractures, to cover the cost of such things as pain, suffering, lost earnings, and medical expenses, including for surgical realignment where necessary.
There is no definitive answer to this question, as the sum awarded will always depend on the severity of the injury, whether you require additional surgery to try and repair the missed fracture and the amount of lost earnings or other expenses incurred.
However, once your case has been evaluated by your medical negligence solicitor, and an independent specialist, you can begin to anticipate how much compensation you might receive.
We understand the pain and difficulty a missed fracture injury may have caused you, and can be particularly troublesome depending on the area and nature of the fracture. That is why, we always strive to get you the maximum amount of compensation, and support you every step of the way.
The medical negligence solicitors at Healys have extensive experience of missed or delayed diagnosis of fracture claims.
If you have suffered a fracture or other injury in an accident that was not your fault, contact our specialists today for information about your rights, in confidence.
Please contact us today to see whether you have a valid and viable Missed Fracture compensation claim. We will be able to give you free initial advice and guidance on your likelihood of success.
