Radiology Malpractice

Radiology is a specialized type of medical malpractice because it typically involves an image, such as an x-ray, MRI, or CT scan. In short, these cases usually involve a “picture” that justifies the claim. While physical evidence, such as an image, might seem to simplify a medical malpractice case - they are usually very complicated. In most cases, these images are difficult to interpret. A skilled legal professional or doctor might be able to identify an abnormality, but most observers could not, and an unprincipled insurance company might deny the presence of an irregularity in the test.

Our Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys have the experience to help you pursue compensation for a radiology misdiagnosis. These cases may involve the following, but are not limited to:

  • Failure to identify breast cancer through mammography
  • Failure to diagnose dangerous tumors
  • Failure to detect bone fractures or injuries to the spine
  • Failure to properly interpret cardiac tests

Our Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyers have helped many clients seek compensation for radiology and misdiagnosis cases. In one such case, we represented a man who suffered injuries in a car accident. After a radiology exam, doctors claimed his spine was normal, even though the test results showed a broken piece of bone compressing the nerves in his spinal cord. Our firm helped the man receive a confidential settlement.
