You could be entitled to claim compensation for an MRI scan error if there has been an incident of this nature that has affected you.

MRI scans are designed to be highly effective at identifying a wide range of problems, but they don’t always go to plan. There can be several ways in which a patient may suffer when something goes wrong with the overall process of having an MRI scan. If this has happened to you, you could be entitled to make a claim for medical negligence compensation with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Here’s how we may be able to help you and when you may be eligible to make a legal case.

When you can claim compensation for an MRI scan error

You could be entitled to make a medical negligence claim for compensation for an MRI scan error if you have been the victim of negligence.

Examples of where you could have a case can include:

  • The MRI scan was conducted in the incorrect area;
  • The scan results have been incorrectly read by the medical staff;
  • The results of the scan have been incorrectly relayed to you or others in the care process;
  • An MRI scan was not offered or arranged when it should have been;
  • There was an unnecessary delay in you having an MRI scan.

So long as we can prove that there has been a failure and some form of negligence that has led to your suffering, that’s when we may be able to offer to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

How we prove a case

When you claim compensation for an MRI scan error, we must establish that there has been some form of negligence and that the negligence has led to you suffering.

We can prove negligence using expert reports from independent consultants we use. They can review your medical records and have an appointment with you to then create the report used to prove the case. This report can also be used to value the claim is it can detail the extent of the suffering you have endured.

As well as establishing negligence, we must also show that you have suffered as a direct result of the negligence. It could be that you have suffered for longer than you should have, or it may be that complications and further problems have developed due to a delay in your care pathway.

Generally speaking, the more you suffer, the more a case could be worth. You could also be entitled to recover losses and expenses as well, like lost earnings from time off work or the costs of treatment and medication.
