What is a missed fracture or an undiagnosed fracture? 

A missed fracture claim is a specific type of medical negligence claim that can be made when a medical professional in a hospital or Accident and Emergency department fails to recognise or diagnose a fracture. 
This failure to diagnose the fracture right away can lead to a number of further problems, including unnecessary pain, delayed treatment, unnecessary treatment, and prolonged injury. In serious cases, fractures that are missed, or incorrectly diagnosed by a medical professional, can even lead to long-term problems such as osteoarthritis. 

What can cause a missed fracture? 

Missed fractures can occur for a number of different reasons, all of which are examples of medical negligence on behalf of at least one medical professional. 
Some of the most common causes of missed fracture claims are: 
A missed fracture caused by no X-ray being offered despite the necessary symptoms 
A failure to spot a fracture on an X-ray image, resulting in a missed fracture 
The X-ray results not being passed onto the correct doctor, leading to a missed fracture 
A missed fracture caused by the X-ray results not being properly read by the doctor

Missed fracture claim case study: 

Our specialist medical negligence solicitors recently settled a missed fracture claim for a client, Mrs W, for around £25,000. 
After being involvd in a serious road traffic accident, Mrs W was taken to the local A&E department to be checked over. She received a diagnosis of fractured ribs, and further X-Rays of her shoulder, which was causing her pain, were taken. However, our client was told that these scans showed the shoulder to be normal, and no treatment was given to assist with her shoulder. 
As her shoulder pain continued, Mrs W was referred by her GP to an Orthopaedics specialist, who diagnosed that the shoulder was fractured in multiple places. As the fracture had been left untreated due X-Ray not being read properly, Mrs W’s shoulder hadn’t healed properly, therefore developed to a worse state than if it was properly treated from the beginning rather than the delayed diagnosis. 
After taking on Mrs W’s missed fracture claim, our medical negligence solicitors specialising in missed fracture claims set to work on building her claim to be as strong and robust as possible. As part of this, MG Legal arranged for a leading orthopaedic surgeon to create a full legal medical report of the incident, in order to prove her missed fracture claim, and win her the medical negligence compensation she rightly deserved. We take care of all of this for our clients, and arrange everything on their behalf, allowing them to take all of the time necessary to focus on recovering from their injuries and medical negligence. 
The orthopaedic surgeon’s report, as our missed fracture claim solicitors expected, confirmed that further scans and referrals should have been done on the initial A&E visit to establish the shoulder fracture. This report in full supported Mrs W’s missed fracture claim, and stated that the level of care she received was below an acceptable standard, which led to the delayed shoulder fracture diagnosis. It also stated that this delayed diagnosis had led to the missed fracture becoming more serious than it otherwise would have been, and causing Mrs W unnecessary pain and suffering. 
Mrs W’s designated medical negligence solicitor went above and beyond with her missed fracture claim, and took every possible factor into account to value her claim to be as high as possible, in order to win her the maximum financial compensation for her missed fracture claim. After gathering all other medical evidence, including this full medical report, MG Legal’s specialist medical negligence solicitors were able to successfully settle the NO WIN NO FEE missed fracture claim for Mrs W, at a value of £25,000.
