Undiagnosed & Missed Fractures

How long will my claim about failure to diagnose fractures take


How long will my claim about failure to diagnose fractures take

This depends on a number of things such as how serious your injuries are and whether the other party admits liability. We will first need to obtain your medical and hospital records and x-rays and then obtain medical evidence from independent experts to establish if there is a case to be answered by the hospital or doctor.

We will gather evidence about your current condition and what treatment you might require immediately and what you are likely to need in the future. We   will also assess your financial losses, such as lost earnings if you cannot return to work and the costs of whatever help and support you may need as a result of the negligence.

All this takes time, but this information is vital to allow us to recover the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled as a result of any identified negligence. The approach that your opponent chooses to adopt can also affect the time it takes to settle.

Sometimes, they will accept our independent medical evidence and our valuation of the case. In these circumstances claims will settle more quickly than in cases where liability is denied. Claims can often be settled through negotiation even if liability is denied, but some can and do go to trial.

At Access Legal, we will always aim to resolve your case in your best interests as soon as possible, but our priority is your health and well-being and it will take time to ensure we achieve the best possible outcome for you.
