Rebecca Callard was successful in obtaining £20,000 in compensation for our client who suffered a delay in diagnosis of his fractured wrist/hand. Our client attended A&E after injuring his hand and, after an x-ray was taken, he was discharged home and told that he had no bony injury. Our client continued to suffer from pain and swelling in his hand and attended A&E again two weeks later. At this point a further x-ray showed that he had in fact sustained two fractures in his hand which should have been diagnosed when he attended previously.  As a result of this delay in diagnosis of the fractures our client required a more complex revision surgery and suffered ongoing restricted movement in his hand.
