Neglected Fracture Causes Finger Deformity

The hospital did not perform a thorough examination, conduct an x-ray, or refer our client to the Hand Surgeon.

Our client had sustained an injury to her finger and attended the A&E Department at Hospital to be diagnosed with a fracture.

The hospital did not perform a thorough examination, conduct an x-ray, or refer our client to the Hand Surgeon, the injury was not operated on. Had the Hand Surgeons had any involvement and surgical intervention carried out, our client would have had less chance of any subsequent deformity developing and she would have had a good prognosis of full resolution of her symptoms.

Should our client decide to undergo surgery to attempt to correct her injury now, the surgery will need to be more complex than what it would have been had it been initially performed and there is no guarantee that this will improve our client’s symptoms.

FAQs
What is medical negligence?
Medical Negligence is when a medical practitioner such as a doctor, nurse, midwife, dentist or an institutional health provider breaches his or its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result of that breach.
How can I find out if medical treatment was negligent?
During the investigations of your clinical negligence claim we will be required to obtain disclosure of all relevant medical records - both hospital and GP - in the manner set out in the pre-action protocols. Once all of the relevant medical records have been received they will be considered on a preliminary basis. They will then be sent to an independent expert nurse who will index and paginate the records to ensure that they are in some semblance of order.
