Mr M from Lincoln fell in 2014 and injured his left wrist. On attending the urgent care centre at his local hospital, he was advised following an x-ray that it was simply a soft tissue injury and he was discharged home. Mr M tried to carry on as normal but continued to experience pain in the left wrist.

The following year, he visited his GP complaining of this pain and was referred to physiotherapy. The physiotherapist was concerned about his wrist, and referred him on to orthopaedics. He was advised by the orthopaedic surgeon that he in fact had an undisplaced fracture of the scaphoid, which was present on his previous x-ray from 2014 but this had been missed. He had to undergo surgery to repair the fracture, but he has since made a good recovery.

Mr M instructed Pryers Solicitors to investigate a potential claim regarding the missed fracture from 2014. On the basis of supportive expert evidence, we alleged to the Hospital Trust that they had failed to identify the fracture on the initial x-ray in 2014, causing Mr M to suffer continued pain and restricted movement for 15 months and undergo an unnecessary operation.

The Hospital Trust accepted negligence, and Mr M’s case was settled for £22,000.
