Technological advancements have revolutionised medical treatment and yet, the simple x-ray remains one of the most valued diagnostic tools used by medics to identify fractures or breaks.
A failure to correctly identify a fracture, such a break to the wrist, can lead to significant complications. There are many types of fractures and our Guide to fractures explains more.
If you’ve been affected by misdiagnosis it’s important to get specialist advice from a dedicated and experienced clinical negligence lawyer.
