Medical Malpractice and Fractures

Medical malpractice and Fractures:

The care of bone fractures can cause medical malpractice lawsuits. For example, fractures can be misdiagnosed as sprains or strains. The consequences of such misdiagnoses can be permanent injury (e.g. loss of arm function), or rarely even more serious consequences can occur. Permanent paralysis from failure to diagnose a fractured neck is even possible, even after a car accident. Other legal issues such as personal injury and wrongful death may arise from whatever caused the fracture.
