Claiming compensation for failure to x-ray

Those who suffer an injury, sprain or fracture may be sent for an x-ray to determine exactly what is wrong and in which area the injury occurred. Failure to x-ray can lead to complications such as excessive pain in the affected area, failure to heal properly and long-term health problems. A physician should send you for an x-ray after initial examination and a broken bone or fracture is suspected. However, if a physician fails to send you for an x-ray due to a misdiagnosis or negligence, you could be looking at long-term pain and lack of treatment. As x-rays can be used to diagnose other conditions such as cancer and kidney stones, a failure to x-ray to make a correct diagnosis could lead to more serious consequences. If you feel that your doctor failed to send you for an x-ray where it was necessary and you insisted that symptoms were still present, you may be able to make a compensation claim where there is evidence of negligence.

How can I tell if someone is negligent?

A failure to x-ray when a patient complains of internal pain or displays symptoms of an illness can lead to serious consequences. Chronic pain and a failure to heal properly can result and surgical procedures may be necessary. If you feel that your physician did not examine you properly or you were merely prescribed painkillers for what you suspect is a broken bone, your physician may have been negligent. Similarly, if you were not sent for an x-ray even though you displayed symptoms of an illness that is usually diagnosed by x-ray then you could win a cash payout where there is evidence someone was at fault. A compensation claims company like Accident Advice Helpline can give you advice and help you with a potential claim.
