At Howell Law Firm, PC, we understand what it means to put your trust in a professional. Our relationships with our clients are based on the understanding that we work in their best interests in everything we do.
The same integrity should be present in all medical professionals, but this is not always the case. If you have placed your confidence in a physician or technician who is not worthy of your trust, then you could have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
Of course, medicine is a complicated profession. There are many opportunities for misconduct and negligence. One category which we find our clients often misunderstand is mistakes in radiology.
Even if it appears that a surgeon or another caregiver made and injurious — or even fatal — mistake in your care or that of one of your loved ones, it might not be that primary provider’s fault. Radiology is an important element in providing effective treatments, and errors could lead to disastrous results. Imaging mistakes at every stage of the process could lead to injuries.
For example, if a physician ordered a scan on the wrong site, it could affect diagnosis and delay treatment. Poor execution of scans could result in useless images that make it impossible to provide accurate medical care. Misreading images could also lead physicians to do anything from misdiagnosing a condition to performing a procedure on the wrong site.
Even if the reason for a medical injury seems obvious, you may need to look deeper into the situation to find out who is truly responsible. Please continue to our main site for more information.
