Legal help with failure to diagnose after radiology tests

Texans who are experiencing a medical issue will generally do the smart thing and go to see a doctor. The medical professional's job is to diagnose the issue by using all available means. In some instances, that requires imaging technologies such as x-rays, MRIs, CT scans and other methods. Patients and their families will trust that the medical professionals know how to accurately assess the radiology results of these tests and come to a treatment plan to help alleviate the issue. Oftentimes they do.

However, there are times when there is still a failure to diagnose even after these tests. Spread of disease, worsened condition and even death can result. Those who have been harmed in this way have the right to pursue compensation in a legal filing. These tactics can look at the patient, find issues that can lead to heart attacks, strokes, cancer and other problems to prevent them. When these warning signs are missed, disaster can come about and it is frequently due to a negligent physician or staff member.

The idea behind radiology is for the radiologist to give the test and inform the treating physician as to what he or she found. If there is a mistake made when doing the analysis or a simple breakdown in communication, the patient can suffer significant damage and even death. A person's condition worsening after a doctor visit or a family losing a loved one is difficult enough without that suspicion gnawing away that there was an error made. It is essential to investigate these cases with help from an experienced attorney.

For people who believe that they have been victimized by a radiology error, there are options to be compensated. Speaking to an attorney who is experienced in radiology, delayed diagnosis and investigating these matters to find the root cause of the problem is a wise decision. Calling an attorney is the logical first step.
