When X-Rays Are Misread

Missed diagnoses are the most common, and often the most consequential types of medical malpractice. These cases often involve some of the most devastating losses for our clients. Often, these cases involve the misreading of an X-ray or other film.

Radiologists often review hundreds of films every week. If a radiologist gets careless and doesn't look closely enough at an X-ray or other film, an otherwise treatable diagnosis can turn untreatable by the time the mistake is caught. For many types of illnesses and infections, the timeliness of treatment can often be the difference between life and death, or between significant permanent injury and recovery.

When a doctor makes a mistake and misreads an X-ray or other film, the consequences are often disastrous for both the patient and his or her family alike. Doctors and other medical professionals have a duty to diligently investigate and treat their patient's conditions. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a misread X-ray or film, you may have the right to recover compensation for your injuries.
