Failure to diagnose a fracture, tendon/ligament injury or dislocation can have serious consequences and you may have a claim for medical negligence.
A missed fracture, for example, can lead to further pain, misalignment, muscular problems, longer healing / recovery time and deterioration in the future as a result. The injury could have been missed for a number of reasons such as failure to offer an x-ray, missing the fracture on the x-ray, or communication error at the hospital.
If the failure to spot and treat an orthopaedic injury effectively has resulted in avoidable suffering then you could be entitled to compensation.
