From MRIs and ultrasounds to X-rays, CT scans and mammograms, today’s medical professionals have an array of imaging technologies at their disposal. However, failure to correctly interpret the images or to report what is seen can cost patients their health or even their lives.
At Gold, Albanese, Barletti & Locascio L.L.C., our Morristown lawyers have hundreds of years of combined experience and thoroughly understand the legal standard of care that New Jersey radiologists and other medical providers must meet. If your doctor failed to meet this standard and you or a loved one was injured, we can fight for maximum financial compensation on your behalf.
Common Types of Radiology Mistakes
Radiology errors can come in all kinds, but here are a few of the most frequent ones:
- Failure to diagnose or test for a brain bleed. Such bleeding is common in victims of auto accidents and other traumatic accidents. Left untreated, it can lead to very serious complications such as stroke or death.
- Failure to diagnosis cancer. For treatable breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and other tumors, a prompt and accurate diagnosis is critical to the patient’s well being and chances of survival.
- Failure to identify a small bowel obstruction. When such an obstruction is not reported on an abdominal CT scan, the patient’s condition can worsen rapidly.
