How much compensation could I receive for a missed fracture injury?

Compensation claims for a missed fracture not only reflect the pain and suffering experienced but also:

  • Provide a route to obtaining justice for the ordeal you have been through
  • Make failings in healthcare known to the public, thereby putting pressure on the NHS to improve standards
  • Get your answers and an apology

The compensation payment will depend on several factors:

  • How much pain and suffering you have had to endure
  • The impact of the delay and / or negligence on your health and quality of life – including current and future care requirements, medical aids, or other necessary assistance
  • Financial loses you have experienced due to your missed fracture – including loss of earnings, medical expenses, travel expenses, and parking costs
  • Any future economic losses, e.g. the cost of rehabilitation, future earnings, pensions etc

Compensation for a missed fracture falls into two main categories:

  • General compensation (General Damages): this includes compensation for pain and suffering and the impact of the injury on lifestyle and quality of life
  • Financial losses and expenses (Special Damages): these include the costs associated with private treatment, care support, travel expenses, other medical expenses, specialist equipment, and loss of income.
