    Compensation for an x-ray misdiagnosis


    You may be sent for an x-ray if your GP suspects you are suffering from broken bones or needs to see internally to diagnose an illness or condition. X-rays will usually be carried out at your local hospital and are a simple, straightforward procedure, however you are reliant on the x-ray technician or doctor to properly analyse the slides for your results.

    If you or someone you care about has been the victim of an x-ray misdiagnosis, the consequences could be serious.

    An x-ray misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis could lead to your symptoms worsening, and you may receive the incorrect treatment, delayed treatment or no treatment at all. In some cases, patients have even died after a misdiagnosis and lack of treatment.

    Errors with x-rays may be caused by human error, such as a technician failing to spot something on a slide, or they could be due to faulty equipment which has caused the error.

    If you’ve suffered after an x-ray misdiagnosis, it’s a good idea to contact a personal injury lawyer, to see if you’re eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so make sure you don’t miss out.

    Should you claim compensation?

    If you have been injured as the result of a misdiagnosis, whether due to human error or faulty equipment, this may have caused you considerable pain and suffering, and could also have led to loss of earnings and financial hardship.

    You may have needed time off work to recover and your prognosis may have been affected if you were seriously ill. You’re entitled to make a claim for compensation if somebody else’s negligence has caused you harm, and your claim will normally be against the NHS Trust in question, rather than against an individual.
