If you or someone you know suffers injuries due to the misdiagnosis of a bone fracture you do have legal rights. You can sue the hospital and doctor responsible for the misdiagnosis. This is called a medical malpractice lawsuit. As a result of misdiagnosis, the bone will begin to heal on its own without proper alignment known as nonunion. When this occurs, it is necessary to have surgery to repair the fracture. However, if the fracture was diagnosed properly when the patient went to the emergency room, further surgery wouldn’t have been necessary.
