Scaphoid Fracture Claims
Not all missed fracture cases will give rise to a claim, but one fracture that can cause particular problems if not diagnosed quickly is a fracture of the scaphoid.
Misdiagnosed fractures are a frequent cause of complaints against A&E and radiology departments. The radiologist may have missed it or the view taken on the x-ray was incorrect. A fracture misdiagnosis can lead to injured patients being discharged home, often with a diagnosis of a sprain. Alternatively, the A&E department may have failed to X-Ray the wrist at the time of initial presentation.
